Act Scheduler requires UAC permission to start

How to enable automatic start of the Act! scheduler without changing the PC's UAC level?

 

DETAILS

 

On Windows 10 Act V21 Update 7 A PC restart causes Act! scheduled backups to fail unless a user clicks OK at the UAC prompt. For an unattended PC that is the Act DB server, this is an issue given the frequency of Windows Updates that automatically restart the PC.

 

Also, the Act menu Tools > Act! Scheduler fails to launch "C:\Program Files (x86)\ACT\Act for Windows\Act.Scheduler.UI.exe", Launching Act.Scheduler.UI.exe outside Act requires a UAC OK.

Re: Act Scheduler requires UAC permission to start

Hello,

 

 

the request after the restart is just the ui (user interface) of the scheduler so its just the window where you could setup the tasks.

You dont need this to run tasks which are allready setup.

 

I had a few customer which also got confused by this message so i just deleted the scheduler.ui.exe from autostart.

 

 

The tasks get executed by a service (Act! Scheduler) and it should run as the local system user who should have enough rights to run the tasks.

 

So my guess would be that the start type of this service is no autmaticly or it´s the wrong user account to start the service.

 

 

Here is also a link to msdn forum where you get a answer to how to open services link.

 

 

Hope this could help you.
