When opening Guard1 Plus you receive the following error:



This error may be followed by -2147022891: Unable to start Guard1 Plus SQL Server instance.





Log in to Windows as a Local Administrator and assign all User Accounts that will be using Guard1 Plus either Power User or Administrator privileges.


This is a requirement of the Microsoft SQL Desktop Engine (MSDE). The MSDE components cannot launch if the User Account does not have Power User or higher privileges.
