After what seems to be a normal, successful
installation of PD Pro 7
Howler, I want the installer to launch
Dogwaffle upon finishing, but it fails: The
error message states that it was unable to execute
the file named dogwaffle.exe, with code 740
(CreateProcess failed). And that the requested
operation requires elevation.
typically (we think) observed on a system with UAC
(Windows 7, Vista) after successfull installation,
but only if you did not
run the installation as Administrator.
As the (admittedly somewhat cryptic) error message
requested operation requires elevation.
Which operation, you ask? Well, that which the
checkbox indicated: to launch Dogwaffle. At the
end of the installation, if you left the box
checked that would try to run the (just-installed)
program after you finish, this error could appear.
If the installer was not "Run As
Administrator...", it may not have the
necessary permissions for the installer to launch
the other program. The permissions need
to be elevated, i.e. they require elevation. Note
that they require elevation only to be run from
the installer. They probably don't need the extra
elevation when you run it directly thereafter, the
usual manual way: either by double-clicking the
launch icon that was placed on the desktop, or by
Start > All
Programs > Project Dogwaffle Howler >
Project Dogwaffle Howler
So you can usually ignore this error message and
run the program immediately, directly
