Note

1 These locations/files may be accessed by multiple desktop or server machines. For this reason we recommend they be placed on a network share and the value be supplied as a UNC path.

2 Windows VirtualStore will complicate the location and use of files under C:\Program Files, C:\Program Files (x86), or C:\Users\AppData. For this reason we recommend this be placed on a network share and the value be supplied as a UNC path. For single-machine installations, this value can be a local path that is not within the above locations (e.g. C:\LAW_Home).

3 Windows VirtualStore will complicate the location and use of files under C:\Program Files, C:\Program Files (x86), or C:\Users\AppData. For this reason we recommend that Windows UAC Virtualization be disabled.

 

Windows Services

The CloudNine™ Explore Service uses Windows Services to perform tasks, such as accessing source files for content extraction, indexing, writing log files, or exporting native files. The rights to these services are configured per computer and can be limited to that computer or utilize network locations.  The services are configured during the installation process.

If necessary, you can change the service configuration after installation by running the Windows Services app.  Right click on the Early Data Analyzer item in the local services list, and navigate to the Log On tab.
