Scrutinizer on Windows Vista

Post by benp » Tue Jun 12, 2007 10:50 am

Hello all,

I've done some testing and I've been able to get Scrutinizer working on Windows Vista with relatively few tweaks. I wanted to start this thread to post the instructions I had come up with so far, as well as get the input of anyone else who has tried it so that we can determine exactly what we'll need to change to start supporting this OS. If any of you use these instructions and still experience problems, please post here so that we can investigate.


Scrutinizer Install Instructions – Windows Vista
  • 1. Double-click the installer to start the process as normal
    2. Click “continue” when prompted by UAC
    3. Unblock apache.exe when prompted by UAC
    4. Unblock collectd.exe when prompted by UAC
    5. Installer will read “File Copy Complete – Executing Install Scripts”
    6. Click “OK” to finish when installation is complete
    7. Run ‘services.msc’ from the command line or the ‘Run’ dialog
    8. Stop the following services:

      b. Scrutinizer Filer Service
      c. Scrutinizer Netflow Collector

    9. For each of these services, right-click the service name and click “Properties”
    10. Click the “Log On” tab
    11. Select the “This Account” radio button
    12. Enter the username/password of an Administrative account on the computer
    13. Click “OK”
    14. Restart all of the above services
