Launching the Denodo Platform Control Center

To launch the Denodo Platform Control Center do the following:

  • Use the shortcuts created on the desktop during the installation and/or the application menus of your Operating System
  • Or, execute <DENODO_HOME>/bin/denodo_platform

Note

In Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008, we recommend disabling the User Account Control (UAC) before launching the Denodo Platform Control Center. UAC cannot be disabled in Windows 8 or in Windows Server 2012.

If you do not want to disable UAC or it cannot be disabled in your operating system, keep in mind the following issues:

  • Launch the Control Center (<DENODO_HOME>\bin\denodo_platform.exe) with the “Run as Administrator” option of the contextual menu of denodo_platform.exe, even if you are already logged in as an administrator user. If you launch a “standalone” Internet Explorer (i.e. it is not launched from the ITPilot Wrapper Generation Tool), you also may need to explicitly use the “Run as Administrator” option to properly use the ITPilot Sequence Generator Toolbar.
  • If you are using the PDF, Excel or Word conversion features, you may have to disable the Internet Explorer protected mode (this can be done from the Security page of the Internet Options dialog of Internet Explorer).

Note

When you launch any Denodo server, an icon will be displayed in the notification area of your operating system. This icon will not be displayed when using a 64-bit Java Virtual Machine to launch the server.
