Can not get Windchill DS to run as a Service on Windows 2008 Server 64Bit
Has anyone run into an issue getting Windchill DS to install as a Service on a Windows 2008 Server x64.
Windchill DS runs fine as a Program (Can Start and Stop)
When I select Runtime Options/Windows Service/Enable the installation fails. In then suggests I may not have permission to create a Service.
1. I am a created Local Admin with Full Control Permissions but not a domain administrator
2. I am the Owner with Full Control Permission
3. The UAC had been disabled.
Wondering if anyone crossed this error, as it seems to be more of a Windows Error than WindchillDS. PTC Technical Support not grasping that a service would not install. Did not see any open issue at opends.org. And local IT is stumped. The server has an unusual Virus Software/ Has Firewall wondering if they could be blocking....
Apache, Tomcat and Windchill have been converted to Services Successfully.
Thanks for the thought Chris but I am able to get Apache, Tomcat and Windchill setup as a Service. ( I also ran into the Windchill memory allocation error in 9.1 M050)
My Issue is with the LDAP...
I have attempted from with WindchillDS Control Panel (Error during Enabling of Windows Service) as well as from command line "windows-service -e" of the PTC TPI or windows-service.bat "-enableService".
I have a week to resolve... or I guess I can give up and backup to good old Aphelion.
Been trying to change Permissions on the windows-service.bat file.... Also tried compatibility to Windows 2003. Will ask IT to disable Virus Software next.
I was able to get WindchillDS installed as a Service after we removed the Anti-Virus from the Computer (Sophos Anti-Virus). Appears the WindchillDS program uses something the Anti-Virus disagreed with.
I guess I'll need to stick to the cardinal rule of removing all the software bullies from the computer when I get a funny issue. (The below mentioned by Chris, plus Virus Software)
