The target engine tests for appropriate permissions prior to authorizing or deauthorizing a key. Target engine testing failed due to inappropriate permissions.
Ensure that you are logged on as a user with Administrator permissions and try again to authorize or deauthorize the key. If you are using Windows Vista or subsequent Windows operating systems, temporarily turn off UAC.
If authorizing on Terminal Services, ensure that the setting for “Restrict Administrative Functions from a WTS Client” is off. In PCC, open the properties for the MicroKernel Router under Local Client. On the Properties dialog, ensure that the option “Restrict Administrative Functions from a WTS Client” is not selected.
This error can also be seen if you are running the Pervasive PSQL Workgroup Engine as an application on Windows Vista or subsequent Windows operating systems and not running as an Administrator. Try closing the Workgroup Engine and then restarting w3dbsmgr.exe using the “Run as administrator” option.
Another option is to uninstall the Workgroup Engine and reinstall it to run as a service (Not recommended for System Five installations).
