"Insufficient privileges" to install service on Windows Server 2012 Essentials

Recommended Posts

I'm new to DriveBender and trying to set it up on a new Windows Server 2012 Essentials server I'm putting together.


I succesfully installed it yesterday but could not activate it. I kept getting errors about the key being invalid.  I then uninstalled it this morning trying to restart from the beginning. During the uninstall, I get an error that the service couldn't be removed due to insufficient privileges. This was unexpected since I'm working under a local admin account (I triple checked this).


I ignored the error and deleted the service manually by nuking the key using regedit.  I then tried to reinstall DB but during the install this time, I got an error about insufficient privileges again, but this time about not being able to create the service.  I could only "Retry" or "Cancel".  I hit retry a few times and still no luck.


Anyone else have this error or can explain what's going on?
