By default, on localized versions of Windows NT Server, only Windows NT Server System Administrators can administer or use Microsoft Transaction Server.

Users who are not part of the Windows NT Administrators group will be unable to start Microsoft Transaction Server. Microsoft Transaction Server may log the following error in the Event log:

The run-time environment has detected an inconsistency in its internal state and has failfast. Please contact Microsoft Product Support Services to report this error. User name lookup on NT user: "Everyone" failed (dwError: 1332). (Microsoft Transaction Server Internals Information: File: acl.cpp, Line: 310)


Microsoft Transaction Server keeps its administration information in the registry. At installation, full control of these registry keys is given to the Administrators group. Certain permissions are also given to the "Everyone" group. However, on localized versions of Windows NT, this group gets a different name (in the native language). Microsoft Transaction Server gives these permissions to the "Everyone" group, which is not recognized by the localized version of Windows NT. Thus the permissions are not recognized.


To resolve this problem, obtain and install Transaction Server 1.0 Service Pack 2a.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft Transaction Server version 1.0. This problem has been corrected in U.S. Service Pack 2a for Microsoft Transaction Server version 1.0. For more information, contact your primary support provider.

For information on obtaining version 1.1 or version 2.0, please see the following articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
