XOS Restricted Users Setup Tool - Solve Surge, Sync, and Exchange Agent issues
XOS Identified a high number of issues regarding Surge, Thunder Sync, and launching the Exchange Agent after a Windows Update.
XOS added more tasks to the XOS Restricted User Setup Tool to apply many of the fixes for the above problems programatically. The original purpose of the XOS Restricted User Setup Tool was to allow non-admin users the proper permissions to use Thunder. That is still needed, but the utility is useful for all Thunder users.
The Restricted User Setup Tool now performs the additional tasks
- Opens needed Firewall Ports
