Please execute the following steps:
1. Open the Windows system dialog "Services" ("Control Panel > (Performance and Maintenance) > Administrative Tools > Services").
2. In the list of the services (local) look for "SpaceobServer Agent" and stop this service.
3. Select "Properties" in the context menu of "SpaceobServer Agent".
4. Switch to the tab "Log On" and change from the "Local System account" to "This account".
5. Insert the necessary login information (username, password) for a user account with sufficient network access rights.
6. Start the service "SpaceobServer Agent" again.
Note: If you use a MS SQL Server and the integrated Windows security, the user you used for the service login have to have read and write access to the database!

Starting the setup with the command line parameters /SILENT /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES /PASSWORD=<installationkey> will perform a silent and automatic installation with the default settings. Please replace <installationkey> with the installation key that you received after your registration. Using /VERYSILENT instead of /SILENT will prevent any visual feedback. Use the options /SERVICEUSER <domain>\<username> and /SERVICEPWD <password> within the initial installation of SpaceObServer to specify the login information of the SpaceObServer Service. Otherwise the local system account is used here, which can lead to problems when scanning network shares (See: "SpaceObServer doesn't start to scan a selected directory...").The option /DIR=<directory> can be used to override the default install path. After this you may configure your database connection using the OLE Automation Interface of SpaceObServer. A template script for an Unattended Installation of SpaceObServer can be found in the installation directory, in the sub directory "Demos" (See "UnattendedInstallation.vbs").

Updates are free within your maintenance period (12 to 60 months after purchase). You are allowed to use the software as long as you want to. If your maintenance period expires, you will get no more free updates, but you will be able to purchase a maintenance renewal for a reduced price in our customer's area.

In the "Help" menu of SpaceObServer you can use "Check for update" to check online if there are updates available. Within your maintenance you can download the latest version directly from the shown dialog. Alternatively you can download the new installer from our customer's area.

To update to the latest version just run the new installation file. Your scan data and all your user settings will persist.

The evaluation copy allows you to test the software before you buy it. The maximum time to do this is 30 days. Further usage of the software after this period is not permitted and violates the law. In order to allow our customers to fully test our software products, our evaluation versions usually do not contain significant limitations. But the software may remember you from time to time that you should purchase the software after your testing is finished.
