Not working for me

Thanks for uploading but the launcher does nothing for me. On the other hand, directly opening runscanner.exe from the App directory works as expected, although of course not stealthily. What do you think may be the cause and is the NSIS source available?

RunAsAdmin

You need to run it as an administrator.

I am

And besides my screen flickering nothing happens when I click on "Allow" at the UAC window. I tried it at both my work and home computers with no luck.

Your problem, unconventional looks similar to one that I had with VistaSwitcher a while back that was solved with a little custom code, which I've since implemented in this launcher. See if it works for you now.

Question

When you bring up the PortableApps menu and find RunScanner portable in the list are you right clicking on it and specifically selecting "Run As Administrator" at that time?

On my system if I just select the Runscanner Portable and launch it, a UAC prompt appears, I OK it and the the screen flickers and nothing happens. Watching in ProcessExplorer shows two dllhost processes start then shutdown.

If I right click on RunScanner and specifically select Run As Administrator it launches fine.

Interesting app. I'm investigating it's findings on my computer now. I may find it handy.

Now it's working!

Thanks for your help SteelGeneral, I guess I just assumed that it was running as administrator since the UAC prompt was appearing. I wonder why this is happening. Pyromaniac, do you have "RequestExecutionLevel admin" at the top of your NSIS source code? It could help avoid some noob confusion Smile Plus it makes sense in this case since the app simply does nothing when run as a regular user (unlike System Explorer for example which still has some limited functionality when not running as administrator)

Compile-force

Looks like this is one of those apps that needs [Launch]:Admin set to compile-force.

I've tested, and this elevates the app properly, without needing to right-click "Run As Administrator"

Huh

/me scratches his head curiously.

Never heard of this compile-force before, then I read the manual. I should read the release notes more often Blum

I'll be releasing an update in a couple minutes.

Sounds like a good candidate for analysis

I need to work out what it is that makes force not work in these situations and remedy it.

Oh, yes, also:

If developing portable apps, you should always read the PortableApps.com Launcher release notes thoroughly. Things change which you very definitely need to know of.
