FAQ 125: Service will not install, or batch files will not run

Category: Troubleshooting

When installing the service you receive an error, possibly referencing "HRESULT: 0x80131515"

Batch files do not run, or do not run correctly.


Windows does not trust the extracted files because it doesn't know where they came from.


Right-click, and select Properties on the file you downloaded
Click the Unblock button (if this button is not present just proceed), then OK
Extract the contents to C:\DNSREDIR replacing all files (make a backup any .ini files first)

Executables, DLL's and batch files are then allowed to run.
Note that some .bat files will still require that you right-click and select "Run as administrator"

Run fixNTFS.bat first, then run dnsrsvc-install.bat to install the service.
