When running a native command in a project what user does it use to run it. As I am running robocopy via a native command to copy a folder and its NTFS permissions to a remote destination but it says "Access is denied" I cannot see why this would be as all users have access to the remote destination.

This uses the UserID/Password that starts the GAMFT Windows Service. Normally, under installation, this is LocalServices. You would need to set the Windows Service to start under a Domain Account that has permissions to the fileshare/executable. Keep in mind that this Domain Account needs to have permissions to run the service as well as read/write files locally on the Windows Server.
