Periodical reports is not working in TAC Vista


  • A report is set up to be printed automatically at certain times using Periodical reports.  

    Nothing happens and the report is never printed.

  • It is possible to open a report manually and print it but the reports are not printed when using periodical reports.

Product Line

TAC Vista


  • Vista Server
  • Windows Server 2008


  • The periodical report worked when running Vista as a application but not as a service.
  • The user starting the service Tacos had a password with only three characters which does not meet the complexity requirements for a Windows 2008 server.
  • It was possible to login and start the service using this password but the service Tacos could not start Excel and create the report using this password.


Change to a user with a password meeting the complexity requirements for a Windows 2008 server for the service called Tacos.
