Admin rights needed to start NW Monitor 7.0.456
« on: September 06, 2017, 03:29:52 am »
We use NR in a ActiveDirectory environment. Users do not have admin rights.
I set up NR logged in as Admin. Everything works well.

A regular user cannot open the Monitor. When he/she clicks the icon, nothing happens.

We made a temporarily workaround with this cmd file:
Code: [Select]
c:\
cd "C:\Program Files\KeyShot7 Network Rendering"
runas /savecred /user:DOMAIN\AdminUser "C:\Program Files\KeyShot7 Network Rendering\bin\keyshot_network_monitor.exe"
However, at the first time a user uses this cmd file, I still need to enter my admin credentials.

Currently this works (aside from the need to copy the cmd to every PC and putting in my password a dozen of times). Also, I do not see this as the most elegant solution from a security point of view. Can you please update (and test) NR so it works flawless in a corporate-environment? I hope you develope 'Keyshot Network Rendering' with Active Directory in mind ... ?!

Great, thank you!

Can you already estimate - will you release it soon / this year / next year / ... ?
Just curious if I can wait rolling out my current work-around ...

You can contact [email protected] right now and get the latest build. It is closed to the final build - would be great to have you confirm that it is working for you.

Thanks.
First impression: version 7.0.457 works flawless without Admin-rights.
