If you want to control the service by using cubrid utility on Windows Vista or later, it is recommended that you run the command prompt with an administrator account.

If you use cubrid utility without an administrator account, the result message is not displayed even though you can run it through the User Account Control (UAC) dialog.

To run the command prompt on Windows Vista or later with an administrator account, right-click [Start] > [All Programs] > [Accessories] > [Command Prompt] and select [Run as Administrator]. In the dialog verifying authorization, click [Yes]; then the command prompt runs with an administrator account.
