Hello, 

Out of curiosity, why is the Plastic USN Journal Tracker an independent services?

I would expect cm.exe or Plastic GUI to be able to read the USN at the moment it tries to look for pending change. 

(This is just a technical curiosity question) 

 

Regards,

Hi,

This is a quite old feature. Checking with the dev team, the principal reason was to be able to use the USN journal, it was necessary some admin permissions. When you installed it as a service, you could use it from a Plastic SCM client that is run with regular user permissions.
But I don't know if this limitation is apply to the lastest Windows versions.
 

Regards,

Carlos.
