Hi Themba,

 

Thank you for the reply, I have run it as administrator and it still closes - this is what is baffling me.

 

Thanks again.

Hi,


 


Have you tried opening a command prompt, then using it to run controlutil? If you just run controlutil.exe directly, it will just closes automatically if it encounters an error. If you launch it from a command prompt, it should show you the error and not closes the command prompt.

Hi,

Would you mind sharing the event logs to see if there's anything relevant recorded whenever you open the controlutil utility?
