    ACTIVdriver

    Hi

    Downloaded the new version of activ driver from promethean world, and set it to deploy via GPO, everything deploys fine, but when i logged on the machine to test, for some reason it runs two copies of activcontrol2.exe one under the system account and one as my username. This is a newly build machine, and has AS3 on.

    I have checked incase there were duplicate lines in HKLM & HKCM - /Software/Microsoft/Windows/Run, but there is only the one.

    Has anyone had this problem before, last year the drivers used to be installed manually so this is the first time i have tried deploying.

    Also to include i have tried versions 4.1.8. 4.1.10 & 4.1.13

    Thanks
    Tom

    No one ever experienced anything like this, its almost as if it is running the ActivControl2.exe on per machine and per user.

    Wouldn't it have to do that if the user was running as a Limited user and the driver needed to do low level stuff with the hardware?

    In task manager it shows ActivControl2.exe running as SYSTEM and a seonds running as the username i log on with, it does it for both admin and staff.

    Well it seems to be fixed now, i altered the msi in wininstall to do a reboot after install, and i created a mst to not put activfilter in HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Windows/Run.

    Not sure why this changed it but it did.

    With the initial install I think a reboot was all that was needed.

    I've noticed that if I deploy it via gpo when I log on there are 2 copies running in the notification area but after a reboot one dissappears.

    I would agree but i had rebooted the machine manually and it still would load two copies.
