Hi all,

Trying to install Apache 2.2 on Windows Vista (Service Pack 1) I'm doing on the DOS-box:
\bin>httpd.exe -k install

I have:
Installing the Apache 2.2 service
<OS 5>Access denied: Failed to open the WinNT service manager

What is happening?
My account is the Administrator account and I've made sure that in the conf file the directoy path is in between " and with the / instead of the \

Any suggestions?

Thanks a lot

You need to run cmd.exe elevated - in menu search type "cmd" then right click to run as administrator (elevated)

rest should be obvious.

Thanks guys, but I don't get it right or something else is wrong:

In the Apache2 folder I right click httpd.exe and I run it as administrator. The DOS-box shows all black and nothing happens, cannot type either.

As you can see I'm quite new to Apache, please explain further.

Thanks again

I described a way while still using uac with elevated command prompt.
disabling UAC is not necessary.
