 +====== Using POPFile on Multi User Windows XP/2000 ======
 +
 +**Problem:** When using POPFile on WinXP Home, Pro, or Windows 2000, with an account without administrator privileges, you may have problems running POPFile.
 +
 +If you try to start it manually you may see something like the following:
 +<code>
 +Loading...
 +{core: windows}
 +{core: config logger mq}
 +{classifier: bayes}
 +{interface: html}
 +{proxy: pop3}
 +
 +POPFile Engine v0.20.1 starting
 +
 +Initializing...
 +{core: mq windows config logger}
 +{interface: html}
 +{classifier: bayes}
 +{proxy: pop3}
 +
 +Starting...
 +{core: mq windows config
 +
 +A copy of POPFile appears to be running.
 +Attempting to signal the previous copy.
 +Waiting 10 seconds for a reply.
 +
 +A copy of POPFile is running.
 +It has signalled that it is alive with proccess ID: 1216
 +Failed to start while starting the config module at POPFile/Loader.pm line 563.
 +</code>
 +
 +Yet, you may not see POPFile in the Task Manager or open the UI (http://127.0.0.1:8080). What can I do to make popfile work?
 +
 +**Solution:** A true "Multi-User" installation is coming relatively soon. (see the [[https://sourceforge.net/docman/display_doc.php?docid=17906&group_id=63137| POPFile Roadmap]] for details. In the meantime, there are a few options for working around the issue.
 +
 +  * You can grant Administrative access to individual programs (see "Microsoft Knowledgebase" below).
 +  * Create an alternate location to install POPFile and change its permissions changed to read/write/modify (see Jimthompson.net below)
