Introduction


Some manual configurations may be required to use all WIN-911 V7 functionality in Windows 8.1 and newer operating systems. This document will walk you through the steps required to get both WEB-911 XTools and the WIN-911 Service Wrapper functioning in Windows 8.1 and newer operating systems. 


WIN-911 V7 Running as a Service in Windows 8.1 and newer

Issue: 

WIN-911 V7 fails to start as a Windows Service. If you try to Start the Win-911 Service Wrapper manually in the Windows Service Manager, the service will eventually time-out.


Solution:


WIN-911 Service Wrapper requires Microsoft’s Interactive Services Detection service (UIODetect). UIODetect fails to start because interactive services were disabled. To re-enable interactive services, a registry change must be made.


1. Open the Windows registry by running regedit.exe

2. Go to the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Windows

3. Change the value of NoInteractiveServices from to 0.
