Support "Limited User"

Postby KongNan » Sat Mar 21, 2009 11:01 am

It seems that windows "Limited Users" do not have enough privilege to run Everything. Any idea? (sorry for my poor english)

Everything requires administrative privileges for low level access to volumes.

Running the part of "Everything" that requires administrative privileges as a service is on my "Things to do" list.

You can try to run the current version of "Everything" as a service.
However, this is not supported yet...

This will not work on Vista ? or Windows 7...
Make sure you disable run on system startup.
run:

Code: Select all

Everything.exe -install_service

I don't think so. It was mentioned in a couple of other forum posts as an unofficial beta. I would think as long as you download it from Voidtools that it would be good. (No need to apologize -- your English is very understandable). :)

I found a way to run as a limited user providing you know an account with administrative privilages: let's suppose there's one called admin with the password hello.

You need to download a small helper program called CPAU from http://www.joeware.net/freetools/tools/cpau/index.htm which allows you to run with alternative user credentials. Copy the CPAU.exe exectable into the same folder as Everything, most likely C:\Program Files\Everything.

Now create a new shortcut on the desktop (right-click, New > Shortcut) and type in the target
"C:\Program Files\Everything\CPAU.exe" -lwp -u admin -p hello -ex everything.exe

Note the position of the inverted commas and the spaces - you need them! And of course you need to put your own values instead of admin and hello. Make sure the shortcut works, then drag it onto the startup menu or put it in the Startup folder so that it runs with Windows.
