Error: OpenSCManager failed – Access is denied. (0x5)
Script unable to complete successfully – exiting

When installing Weblogic PIA as a service on Windows using the installNTService.cmd program, this error will pop up if you do not have the proper administrative privileges. This error is not PeopleSoft based it is a Windows OS error. Since the introduction of UAC (User Access Controls) this error can occur because of the user privileges.

I always change the administrative account to have no UAC controls, but in cases where the administrative user must have the privilege, you can simply run the DOS command feature as Administrator (right click on the command program) and select “Run As Administrator”. You will see a DOS window and it will be titled “Administrator: Windows Command Processor”.
