Thorsten, thank you. I had to adjust some folder permissions and grant
some special privileges (as described at the end of this page:, but once I did
that it seemed to work, at least running under a User rather than
Local System account.

Jeremy: thank you also - ProcessMonitor is very useful, and I'm using
it to compare the behaviour of the working (local) and non-working
(over SSH) instances. It's going to take me some time to sift though
them, but there are big differences:


The two logs diverge massively at line 12. The working instance
appears to start scanning the filesystem, whereas the non-working
instance starts going through registry keys. I'm not 100% convinced
I'm comparing oranges with oranges here, but I'm hoping there's a clue

I'll be spending some time trying to deduce what the problem might be,
but if anyone looks at those logs and can easily tell me, I'd really
appreciate it! :)
