Eddie 2.19.6 won't start on Windows 10

Recommended Posts

I installed Eddie 2.19..6 today on Windows 10 and whenever I try to start it I get the error

Unable to obtain elevated privileges (required): Unable to start (unable to initialize service)
I tried uninstalling and reinstalling and it doesn't fix. This happens with both the installer version and portable.

Hey mate,

I had the same problem.  If you check your Services, there will be a 'Eddie Elevation Service', probably from an old install etc

Stop the service (if it's running) and from the command prompt (run as admin) type SC DELETE Eddie Elevation Service

Other option if that doesn't work is to run regedit and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SYSTEM > CurrentControlSet > Services and delete the EddieElevationService key/folder

Reboot and try again either with the portable version or installer :)
