Hi there,

I'm trying to install this service that works fine on win7, but i get this error when installing on Windows 8, anyone has an idea?

I have both tried to use .net 2 and 4 getting the same result and i have UAC turned off:

Microsoft (R) .NET Framework Installation utility Version 2.0.50727.6387

Running a transacted installation.

Beginning the Install phase of the installation.
See the contents of the log file for the Agent.exe assembly's progress.
The file is located at Agent.InstallLog.
Installing assembly 'Agent.exe'.
Affected parameters are:
   logtoconsole =
   assemblypath = Agent.exe
   logfile = Agent.InstallLog

An exception occurred during the Install phase.
System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: No mapping between account names and security IDs was carried out
