Run as windows service with Local Account

Post by RichardU » Fri Sep 25, 2020 5:53 pm

My windows machine is not connected to a Microsoft account which means it's running as a Local Account with no password

When I try to run BI as a windows service, it wants my windows login. The user name is filled in, but when I click ok, it says it could not login.

Is there a fix for this?

Thanks, Richard

You need to be sure that your account name is complete in the service credential box (it seems to only show the first few letters in my installation) and add the password that you use for the local account. LocalSystem and local account are not the same thing.

Your local account needs to be the same account that you used to perform the install of BI and needs to have a password else you won’t be able to run the service using a local account.
