WMDC works only when started as Administrator

Discussion in 'ActiveSync' started by Markus Wagner, Jan 24, 2009.

  1. I have still the problem with 0x85010014 (which I posted on 12-Jan-2009).
    But now I have a workaround:
    - I ensure that wmdc.exe, wmdhost.exe and outlook.exe are not startet
    - I start WMDC as Administrator
    - I start Outlook as Administrator
    - I connect my device

    In the background also wmdhost.exe starts. When WMDC starts the sync I get a
    warning that there happened a change on the server because all has to be
    synchronized again (the german message text is "Auf dem Server wurde eine
    Änderung vorgenommen, die eine erneute Synchronisierung aller Elemente auf
    Ihrem Gerät erfordert. Führen Sie eine manuelle Synchronisierung durch.").
    The sync needs it time but afterwards every changed is synced at once -
    until I disconnect the device.
    If I connect the device again I get the sync error 0x85010014.

    If I start WMDC normally (not as Administrator) I see in the SysInternals
    procmon the following errors:
    WmdHost.exe 4532 RegOpenKey HKLM\Software\Microsoft\SQMClient ACCESS DENIED
    Desired Access: Read/Write
    WmdHost.exe 4532 RegOpenKey
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Common\ProductVersion ACCESS DENIED
    Desired Access: Read/Write
    WmdHost.exe 4532 RegOpenKey
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Common\LanguageResources ACCESS DENIED
    Desired Access: Read/Write
    WmdHost.exe 4532 RegOpenKey
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Common\LanguageResources\InstalledUIs
    ACCESS DENIED Desired Access: Read/Write
    WmdHost.exe 4532 RegOpenKey
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Common\LanguageResources\InstalledUIs
    ACCESS DENIED Desired Access: Read/Write

    I wonder if this has something to do with may problem?

    Any suggestions are welcome

  3. I'm not sure what you mean with "logging in as an Administrator for the
    local box". But my account belongs to the administrators group. As far as I
    know this is under Vista not enough to write the registry under HKLM. You
    also have to run your program explicitly as Administrator (because of UAC).
    This I can understand. But I doubt that every user has to run WMDC as
    Administrator under Vista. There must be something else wrong.

    Any ideas?
