es.exe without elevated permissions?

Post by phoowkaspo » Mon Mar 18, 2013 7:09 pm

Hi,

I am able to successfully run es.exe while in an administrator cmd window, but not when outside of this window. I get an error like
"Everything IPC service not running". This turns out to be a big problem for plugins for FindAndRunRobot and others that are <b>not</b> run
under administrator-mode, but that <b>do</b> need to plug into the service, which is evidently running, just not reachable via
non-administrator programs.

Is there any way around this? I am currently on windows 8 home premium edition from windows xp, where I happily ran
Everything from FindAndRunRobot and via es.exe for many years.

Any advice appreciated.

Please try running the latest beta with the service installed.

You should be able to run es.exe without elevation.

HI,

Out of an administrator cmd console, I did:

Code: Select all

D:\Installs\Everything-1.3.1.636b>Everything.exe  -install-service
and then

Code: Select all

D:\Installs\Everything-1.3.1.636b>Everything.exe
In a separate non-administrator cmd console, I did

Code: Select all

c:> es.exe
and got

Code: Select all

Everything IPC service not running.
Am I doing something wrong here? I did verify that the service is running and es.exe runs fine out of the administrator cmd console.

Thanks!

Everything.exe 1.3.1.636b does not require elevation.

If you run Everything.exe 1.3.1.636b with elevation es.exe will not be able to communicate with it.

Please make sure Everything is not running and from a non-admin cmd run all the following commands:

Install the service (this will automatically request admin privileges, you can skip this if the service is already installed):

Code: Select all

Everything.exe -install-service
Run the Everything client:

Code: Select all

Everything.exe
Finally run es:

Code: Select all

es.exe
