Conflict with BeyondTrust Privilege Management: internal datasheet does not open

Problem

I have BeyondTrust Privilege Management version 5.6.126.0 installed and the internal datasheet of think-cell does not open anymore, e.g. when double-clicking an existing think-cell chart.

Sending an email using think-cell's Send Slides... function or sending log files via Request Support... does not work as well.

Solution

This problem has been fixed by BeyondTrust. A fix is available in version 5.6 SR2 or later as mentioned in the Privilege Management for Windows 5.6 SR2 Release Notes.

Explanation

When opening the internal datasheet of think-cell or a new email using think-cell's Send Slides... feature, additional executables from think-cell's installation folder are executed. When BeyondTrust Privilege Management version 5.6.126.0 is installed, the execution of those files (e.g., tcasr.exe, tcmail.exe, tcrunxl.exe) is blocked. Therefore, opening the internal datasheet or sending an email does not work.

Contact support

In case you are unsure if you are experiencing this issue, contact our support team:

Please send us your think-cell log files for analysis. Since Request Support… does most likely not work, you can find the logs as explained below:

  • Open a new Windows Explorer window, type

    %LOCALAPPDATA%\think-cell

    into the address field, and press Enter

  • Please send all files with the extension .log contained in this folder to our support team.

    This may be any of the following files: POWERPNT_log.log, EXCEL_log.log, TCMAIL_log.log, TCUPDATE_log.log, TCRUNXL_log.log, TCASR_log.log, PPTTC_log.log, setup_think-cell_xxxxx_log.log.

  • If you want to browse to the directory:

    The full default filepath is C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Local\think-cell. If you cannot find this, it is probably set to invisible. You can change that in Windows Explorer by checking:

    • Windows 7:
      OrganizeFolder and search optionsViewShow hidden files and folders.
    • Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10:
      ViewShow/hideHidden Items.

    In addition, if think-cell is active, please click on More More Menu About in the think-cell toolbar and send us a screenshot of the think-cell info window.
