User Privileges


Memory Validator can be run as a normal user or an administrator user.


For any tasks that require special privileges to achieve Memory Validator will do these tasks via the svlAdminService that was installed and started when you installed Memory Validator.


You can also run Memory Validator with elevated privileges.



Operating System


Any modern windows machine is suitable to run Memory Validator.


At a minimum, Memory Validator requires Windows NT® 4.0 or better.


Because the CreateRemoteThread() Win32 function and named pipes are not available on Windows 95®, Windows 98® and Windows Me®, Memory Validator will not run on these platforms.


Any newer operating systems do not need any additional service packs but we generally recommend being up to date where possible.


For older systems, we recommend using the minimum service pack levels below:


Windows NT 4.0: Service Pack 6

Windows 2000: Service Pack 2
