This is  aknown issue with the installer - the created account needs Log
On Locally, Access From Network and Log On as a Service rights. The
installer only ensues Log on as a Service as it is now. This will be
fixed in the next release.

No need for code - just run "net helpmsg 1385". To see *which* right is
missing, you need to enable auditing in yuor local security policy and
check the security eventlog.

This is where you did wrong.

See above about required rights (they're even in the FAQ). You definitly
do *not* need Act as part of the OS - that is a *very* sensitive right
that's not even granted to Administrators by default.

Yes, it's certainly a bit unpolished so far. But we're getting there.
