Admin users in UniLogic

Recommended Posts

Hi All,
I have just had UniLogic installed on my work laptop.

Does UniStream only work if you run as admin? If so is there anyway round this as the company I work for only allow IT to have admin rights

Basically, as much as I remember, the only requirement of UniLogic to run as Admin is when it creates the SQL instance for the first time. Tell me which version you are using, and I'll compile the main exe without Admin rights in the manifest.

You will still need to run the UniLogic for the first time as Admin, so the SQL instance will be created with enough rights to the folder of the SQL Server (else, the SQL Server fails).

 

I will raise this issue, so it will be decided if to change UniLogic so it won't require any Admin rights when running.

Hi Saragani,

I have the latest version which is 1.23.25

A member of our IT team has had it running. It still wont open without requiring and admin login.

As I work in a highly secretive industry, admin rights are very strictly controlled. They wont give one to a lowly engineer like me.

I'm letting you know that we are giving this issue a high priority.

We are currently working on a solution. Installation will still require to run as admin (off course), but UniLogic itself would not.

version 1.23.25 hangs after installation.

1 install is ok on a win7 machine.

2 failures,  one on a win7 and one on a win 10.

I have not yet been asked for the key number.

the screen shows "loading components"

Unfortunately diagnosts.exe did not help.

The Fix button gets a green check on SQL Server then nothing.

Next run of diagnostic shows the same two red crosses, (the fix did not do anything)

Unilogic still hangs.

Changed the exe and msi to administrator but no help.

Well the SQL Server installation is corrupted. Try running the SQL Server 2012 x64 (assuming your windows is 64 bit) and repair the installation (or uninstall and reinstall)

removed everything, rebooted, reinstalled.

same problem it is possible to "fix" the SQLserver but it will not stay fixed.

a new install of SQLserver checks ok but does not survive a reboot of pc.

the unilogic diagnostic is not happy nor is the unilogic.

Well, I might need to have a remote session to your computer in order to see the exact error from the sqllocaldb utility and from the logs of the sql instance.

Please contact our support by phone or by email in order to schedule a remote session.

I have the same problem. Have spent hours trying the work arounds described on this forum, with no luck. 

Looks to me like the installer package and possibly the use of a non-current SQL installation needs to be revised.

Until then I am stuck with a installation from two years ago on the same model of Acer PC with the same Windows 10 installation that did install back then.

Please talk with our support for scheduling a remote session. I want to diagnose the exact problem in order to find out why UniLogic doesn't start.

Thank Saragani, I lodged a support ticket, got some advice and manged to get it the rest of the way. The root cause for failure of the installation and the earlier diagnostic tool was that the .Net feature in  Windows was not enabled. I also had to shut of Windows Defender firewall, virus protection and controlled folder access. I am still doing battle with those "features" of Windows to be able to run the software. Just when I think it is all good Unilogic runs foul of the controlled folder access. I think there must still be some executables that I have to allow through ... but I cannot work out what they all should be.  So far I have allows Offline activator.exe Unitronics.Notifier.exe and Unitronics.Shell.IU.exe.  What else needs to be on that list ?

That's all you need to allow, at the moment. If the ladder compilation would fail, then we will try to allow few more exe files.

Are you using another antivirus or just windows defender?

I am another user having a similar issue to Jamies. My end users machine will not run the program unless it is elevated with admin credentials. I have tried getting around with runasinvoker commands, task scheduler, and even attempted resourcehacker, but the program will not run successfully unless an admin runs it.
