Hyperion Error: EPMINS-01094: User Account Control is enabled. Installation may lead to unpredictable results and thus will be stopped

In this blog, I will be talking about an error I encountered while doing a Hyperion install on Windows Server 2008. Now the error I received while doing the install is as shown in the below snapshot:

 
The error says “EPMINS-01094: User Account Control is enabled. Installation may lead to unpredictable results and thus will be stopped

Now the issue is because the User Account Control is enabled. User Account Control is a security feature in Windows which helps to prevent unauthorized changes to the operating system. Now the problem with a Hyperion install is that it updates the system values and registry settings. And these are the precise things that UAC is designed to prevent. Now in order to fix the error, you need to go to Control Panel and disable the UAC.
Go to Control Panel. This is shown in the next snapshot.

Click on User Accounts in the above snapshot.


On clicking the User Accounts in the above snapshot, a window pops up which allows the user to disable the UAC Feature. This is shown in the next couple of snapshots.

The default UAC settings is as shown in the following snapshot.

Change it to “Never Notify” as shown in the next snapshot.

Running the install goes ahead successfully as shown in the next couple of snapshots.



I would recommend that you turn back the UAC once the install and configuration has been completed successfully since it is designed to keep the system secure. Turning UAC off may compromise a system.
