Error -4092 EACCES permission denied

After installing 2.6.0 on Windows Server 2016, i had to upgrade .Net to 4.8.
I typed start-uddashboard to see if i can get it running, but i get this error:

Start-UDDashboard : Error -4092 EACCES permission denied

Try setting a port number on Start-UDDashboard. This usually means something else is listening on the port (like IIS on 80)

that did the trick. thank you!

Just curious, this happens because UD defaults to a port that is in use, or no port at all?

It defaults to 80. If you try to run UD on a box with IIS installed, and it has the default config, it’s already listening on 80.

It’s possible to set the port to 0 and the system will return a random port to you. Maybe that’s one way to work around this. I really think improving the error message is the best course of action though.

Sure thing, I was just curious.
