no admin right.. no Sibl :(
07/18/11 at 12:32:28
 
Hello everyone,

Just wondering if it's possible to run Sibl without having local admin rights on a machine.  I'm having trouble getting this to work on a Windows 7 machines, unles the user has local admin rights.

Any thoughts on how to correct this, or a possible workaround?

Thank you Smiley

Hi Jeremy,

What errors are you having? I'll see if I can do anything.

Hello,

Sorry for the late reply (I was expecting to get an email saying that someone had replied).

Basically it just doesn't run when the local user doesn't have admin access... when the local user has admin access the GUI launches as normal (nothing happens when you double click the icon when you don't have admin access).

Also on another note, is there a script for Softimage 2012 when using Arnold for rendering?

Thank you for your help.

Jeremy: I'll need to check for the admin thing, I'm not sure there is anything I can do if its not working though. Is there a logging file created or whatever in your sIBL_GUI preferences folder when not starting in admin (Don't forget to remove it before starting the non admin instance)? If sIBL_GUI is not creating any logging files then the problem is certainly related to the embedded python interpreter.

For the Arnold Templates, the following templates should work Smiley:

  • Softimage_Arnold_Dome_Light
  • Softimage_Arnold_Lightsmith
  • Softimage_Arnold_Standard
