How do I disable the prompt to "Run as Administrator" that appears when running Acctivate?

If you're seeing this prompt appear every time you log in to Acctivate, take these steps.

From time to time, an Acctivate Update may install new components into the ACCTivate\ClientFiles folder. The next time you run Acctivate these components will be copied from the ClientFiles folder and will be installed on each workstation. Users may be prompted to “run as administrator” in order for these components to be installed.

In the event that you are prompted to run Acctivate as Administrator each time you open Acctivate, you can review the exception log to see which component is either missing or is trying to be installed each time.

When reviewing the exception log, you should see some message similar to this:

File C:\PROGRA~2\COMMON~1\MICROS~1\OFFICE12\ACEOLEDB.DLL is out of date (12.0.6423.1000 < 14.0.4760.1000). Running \\Server\Acctivate\ClientFiles\AccessDatabaseEngine.exe with args /quiet

You may try manually running the related Client file if the file is an executable or copying the component to the applicable location. In the example, you would run the AccessDatabaseEngine.exe installer in the ClientFiles folder. If the component in question does not exist in the \..\ACCTivate\ClientFiles folder, then we recommend running the CUMULATIVE Update, which can be downloaded from our Website and installed on your server. Running Acctivate as Administrator after this should properly copy the related Components to the necessary directory.
