interactive service detection - worker render dialog
« on: March 04, 2011, 12:23:08 PM »
Hi.

Running 3ds Max 2011 / Vray jobs.

On all my workers with XP64 - I get a nice framebuffer on-screen where I can see what the worker is rendering.

But on all our Windows 7 (64) I get an icon named "interactive service detection" and I can click this and (on rare occations) I get to see the framebuffer rendering, but when I close this dialog it never reappears so it is impossible to get the framebuffer ons-screen again.

I have read about the "feature", but can

This is a service which should have been disabled when the worker is installed.  It would appear that it's still running, so you should go into the services management panel and stop the service and then set it's startup type to 'disabled'.

Or you can stop and disable it at the command line with the Microsoft service control utility 'sc'

(NOTE: the service name is UI<zero>Detect, not UI<oh>Detect)

sc stop UI0Detect
sc config UI0Detect start= disabled


The advantage to using the sc command line is that if you're logged in as a domain admin, you should be able to use sc to control services on remote machines, so you won't have to actually login to each and every worker in your farm.

To test this (if the remote machine is named VM-WIN7-X64):

sc \\VM-WIN7-X64 query UI0Detect

you should get something back like:

SERVICE_NAME: UI0Detect
        TYPE               : 110  WIN32_OWN_PROCESS  (interactive)
        STATE              : 1  STOPPED
        WIN32_EXIT_CODE    : 1077  (0x435)
        SERVICE_EXIT_CODE  : 0  (0x0)
        CHECKPOINT         : 0x0
        WAIT_HINT          : 0x0


if you do, you can proceed with the service stop and disable commands.

sc \\VM-WIN7-X64 stop UI0Detect
sc \\VM-WIN7-X64 config UI0Detect start= disabled
