Hello, I know that in the user manual it is stated that switching users will cause the engine to fail. However it isn't mentioned anywhere if locking Windows will cause any issues. I have tried to process datasets overnight on my computer and it would seem that sometime after Windows locks the computer due to inactivity, that the computer will actually totally freeze/lock up and will become unresponsive. The only solution at that point is to do a hard reset on the computer. I am able to process the job if I keep the computer from becoming idle for too long, but this defeats the point of being able to process jobs overnight or remotely. I am looking at installing the engine on a remote computer, but since it will be remote, I want to make sure that this does not continue to be a concern whenever Windows locks the computer. I know that on my computer (and likely the remote computer that I will be using), there are certain features that are managed by my site administrators and even though I have admin rights, I am unable to make certain changes. This is one reason I'm reaching out to the community to see if anyone has encountered this or knows how I can prevent it from happening in the future.
Is it resolve now? Anyone can please confirm if locking Windows will freez Engine or not? I would like to process data overnight, but will not be able to prevent windows from locking my computer due to inactivity.
Thanks. It works with the latest version!
Run the engine as administrator. I'm on a Win7 box using remote access.
