After the installation finished I'm left with a fully installed Wowza 4.0.4 but with no services.
startup.bat works perfectly with no errors in the log.
startmgr.bat works perfectly.
Running either InstallWowzaStreamingEngineManager-Service or InstallWowzaStreamingEngine-Service leaves me with
"Administrator privileges are required to install Wowza Streaming Engine, Please retry with Administrator privileges."
regardless whether the script is executed as Administrator, from CMD started as Administrator or just as the regular user accout (which happens to be an administrator).
All that happens is that installbatch.txt gets a new entry of:
InstallWSE: no admin privileges.
InstallWSE: end "
I've tried both with and without UAC.
I have tried re-installing.
I have tried uninstalling, removing all files from C:\Program Files (x86)\, restart the server and running the installation again.
I have verified java (jre7).
Does anyone out there have any insight into what might be the problem?
