    Hello Venkat,
         you need to be logged in with an Administrator account in order to register a machine as an Execution Server.
    Please make sure you're running with Administrative rights and try again.

    Let me know if the problem persists.

    I do not have administrative rights and need to be able to run 'open in visual studio' and 'run sample' links from OpenAccess ORM SDK.  Are there instructions /proceduire i can give to my network admin group to fix/set . I access this server via RDP/Terminal Server and am not part of the localadmin group.

    Thanks in advance

    Hello Jkeller,

    See if your network admin group can add your domain account as a member of the local administrators group on the machine you're trying to run the software on, as shown in the attached screenshot.

    All the best,

    I discovered the answer to my problem below.  On the server, even though I am an administrator, I needed to right click the Configure as Execution Server and select Run as Administrator.  That worked.  Also, you can right click the Configure as Execution Server/Properties/Compatibility tab and select to Run this program as administrator and it will run it that way in the future.  The latter would be a good step after the Scheduling Server and Execution Server are installed.  This was a simple fix but I missed it.

    Problem (solved):
    I'm a member of the Administrators group on our server (Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2).  My Test Studio project indicated no execution server when trying to run a test list.  The project already indicated successful connection.

    Logged on the server.
    Clicked Configure as Execution Server
    Warning:  The Execution Server must be run with Administrative privileges otherwise it might not function properly!
    Clicked OK
    Alert box:  Requested registry access is not allowed.
    Telerik Test Studio Execution Server pop up opens
    Click checkbox:  Start Execution Server when Windows starts
    Alert box:  Requested registry access is not allowed
    Click OK
    Check box is checked
    On project test list on local computer click Run List Remotely
    Server shows error
    Mouseover:  NoExecutionServer

    What else do I need to check since my account has full privileges?  (Project connection to scheduling server already checked and registered.  Scheduling Server and Execution Server on same server)

    Thanks,
    Chris
