Brenda Hopkins asked 4 years ago
Logged in with an Admin Account to workstation.
Running the install and get this message:
eOne.SmartConnect.WindowsService.exe could not be installed. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to install system services.
I do have Full access to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Wow6432Node \ eOneSolutions .
What else should I check?

Chris I am having the same issue. I was logged in as an admin and right-clicked to run as admin but still unable to install SmartConnect. We also ran through the issues in the link provided. do you have any other suggestions for this issue? I cannot install SmartConnect after an upgrade on the user workstations.
