I have the same problem, latest version of eddie gives this notification but earlier eddie's worked out of the box. But what i see now is that it still gives me a vpn connection...but without starting the eddiegui/client?

If the problem is a firewall running, what rule would need to be added to the Ubuntu firewall to allow elevated privileges?

Disabling it would show if it's really a firewall. :)

The firewall is disabled and still “Unable to obtain elevated privileges”, so we can safely assume it's not the firewall.

v2.18.9 was working fine. But I wanted to try the latest stable build, v2.19.7, and now I’m getting a whole bunch of

Quote

Unable to obtain elevated privileges (required): Unable to start (unable to initialize service)

messages no matter what I try.

579391072_Eddiev2_19.7-Unabletoobtainelevatedprivileges.png.7efe61db52ce5ae12c46f180bedb4c47.png

Reboot didn’t help, I had to revert to an earlier version. I had 2.19.4 beta stored in a hard drive so I used that just because it’s newer.
Any ideas?

Edit:
I should probably mention that I’m only experiencing this problem on Windows 10, Eddie v2.19.7 runs smoothly on an Arch-based distro I’m also using. Edited ... by ccp4vpn

As you can probably see, the error message is different. Ergo, open your own thread or simply search before you post. If you'd done the latter, you would probably find a post like this:

I have a similar problems with Eddie since a long time and it's not been fixed byt the last 2-3 updates. Basically Eddie cannot tart with OS since it can't raise privilege to start as a deamon. I'm running windows 10 and this problem has occurred on at least two different computers. I've tried starting Eddie manually with administrator rights but it doesn't change a thing. The only way to fix this, is to restart Windows. Then, the client will start as it should. So that means i have to boot my computer, wait for Eddie to fail starting, thn restart computer and voila...

I've been looking for solutions without ever finding one...

No solutions but plenty of workarounds. I hope you practiced the noble art of search-fu regardless.

Like i said i found at least one workaround but this isn't a solution. Seeing that Airvpn is a company selling me a service,  I believe I can expect some support so the software it distributes.

You can, but not on the forums where mostly your fellow users reply. If you need professional support, please create tickets. Thanks.

 Good point, I haven't been following enough the forum to know that. I'll create a ticket, thanks for your help 🙂

I am not very knowledgeable but the last time i posted here, it was because of a similar issue. My VPN wouldn't start. Turns out that you have to shut off the computer but first exit the VPN. If you do not, next boot it doesn't start. I mean, it starts with windows but doesn't fully load the app and you have to restart. Then it works ok.

I remember trying to kill Eddie, and upon trying to restart it that error message came up. But it would work fine if i did said things above.
