Setting a user account for processing

Color Factory runs as a Windows Service, so its processes run in the context of a user account that needs access to both local and network folders as defined in the channels you configure.

In fact, all FotoWare services that run on the server share a common user account, referred to as the FotoWare Process Account. This account is not set in Color Factory - it is set globally in the Operations Center and used by all the FotoWare applications installed on the server.

You can learn more about the process account and where it can be set in the Operations Center guide.
