Rule “Setup account privileges” failed.

For more information on this SQL error, see the following Microsoft Knowledgebase article:


This error typically occurs when the user does not have sufficient setup account privileges to install the ESET PROTECT database or the minimum system requirements for the database are not met.

Begin with solution I and only continue to solution II if the issue is not resolved.

I. Verify that your system meets the database requirements for ESET PROTECT

You can use an existing Microsoft SQL Server running in your environment; however, it must meet minimum requirements. 

Visit the ESET PROTECT database system requirements Online Help topic.


II. Ensure that the user has the correct user account privileges

If you intend to use the dedicated database user account that will have access to the ESET PROTECT database only, you must create a user account with specific privileges before installation. Additionally, you will need to create an empty database that will be used by ESET PROTECT.
  1. Ensure the user has the following user rights:
  • SeBackupPrivilege (Back up files and directories)
  • SeDebugPrivilege (Debug programs)
  • SeSecurityPrivilege (Manage auditing and security log)
Check the list of privileges that are currently associated with the account

You can use the AccessChk.exe tool from Microsoft.

  1. To add the user rights to the local administrator account, follow these steps:
    1. Login to the computer as a user who has administrative credentials.
    2. Open the Local Security Policy: Press Windows + R, type secpol.msc and then click OK.
Figure 1-1
    1. In the left pane, expand Local Policies, click User Rights Assignment and then double-click Back up files and directories.

Figure 1-3
    1. In the Select User or Groups dialog box, type the user account that is being used for setup and then click OK two times.
Figure 1-4
    1. Repeat the procedure for the other two policies: Debug programs and Manage auditing and security log.
  1. Restart your system and install ESET PROTECT.
