i have windows 8
i have a windows application wrtitten with c# and on visual studio 2013 and want to install this application.
i open command prompt write:
after i run this code it give me the error :
An exception occured during the Install phase.
System.InvalidOperationException: Cannot open Service Control Manager on computer '.'. This operation might require other privileges.
The inner exception System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception was thrown with the following error message: Access is denied.
This is my computer i dont know why it needs access right? and i dont know how to give right privilege.
also i changed my sercviceProcessInstaller Account property to LocalSystem and also tried with LocalService but both of them gives me the same error.
what should i do to give right privilege?
i found the answer finally. It takes 3 hours but lastly i did it.
The solution: RUN COMMAND PROMPT AS ADMINISTRATOR
I encountered this problem myself, in my case, since I couldn't run "Developer Command Prompt for Visual Studio" explicitly from .exe file as administrator and create a shortcut to run it inside the Visual Studio using "Tools => External Tools". To work around the issue, I tried running Visual Studio as Administrator and it worked as well.
It seemed that it was the Visual Studio program that hadn't required access to perform the operations.
