The Automation Services server component and the Automation Services client component are not installed on the same computer. This is mandatory if the server component is installed on a client operating system such as Windows Vista/XP/7. You can log on to the Automation Services server component only from an instance of QPS Connect Client that is running on the same system as the server component.

2. Right-click the AutomationServices_Data Properties file and click the Security tab.
3. Provide full control privileges to the [server computername]\ASPNET user.
