Message: Access is denied.
Explanation: If "Access is denied" appears during a Foxhound installation or upgrade on Windows 7, you may
need to start over and switch to using the hidden "Administrator" account:
- Run the Foxhound "unsetup" process...
start - All Programs - Foxhound1 - Tools - Unsetup Foxhound
Open a "command prompt" window in "Administrator" mode...
start - All Programs - Accessories - right mouse Command prompt - Run as Administrator
Make the magic hidden Administrator account visible in Windows 7 by typing this command and pressing Enter...
net user administrator /active:yes
Log off your normal account, and login as Administrator.
Run the Foxhound installation again.
You probably should set a password for the Administrator account, or hide it again...
net user administrator /active:no
If you started the Foxhound database while logged in as Administrator, shut it down.
While still logged on Administrator, grant "Full Control" on the C:\ProgramData\RisingRoad folder to all "Users"...
- click right mouse Properties on C:\ProgramData\RisingRoad
- click Security
- click Edit...
- select "Users (..."
- check Full Control - Allow
- click Apply
- click OK
The "Access is denied" message may also mean the Foxhound engine is already running
as a service and it cannot be stopped by the post setup process.
As a result, the Foxhound upgrade will not work properly:
