Is it possible to start a Windows service created by a standard account

Hi,


I have created and installed a Windows Service using SimpleSC plugin. I have a standard user and an admin user account in my machine. I am not able to start service for the standard account. Please note that account used while installing service is the same standard account. Is it not possible for a standard user to start a service?

Thanks

A standard account cannot install a service.

A service can be started by anyone if the security settings (ACL) of the service is changed so that eveeyone has the right to start it.
