Setup file not recognising packaged items

Post by Sasquatch » Wed Dec 14, 2011 1:59 am

Hi,

I am using a program called Setup Factory to package up my program and created an automated install. Within the install it reads values from an ini file and writes those values to the registry. This ini file i was hoping could be boxed up with Enigma Virtual Box but it does not appear to be working.

The setup file does not recognise the packaged ini file and fails.

Are you aware of any issues when using the Setup Factory Program?

Regards,
Sean

This appears to be resolved by enabling the "Share virtual system to child processes" box.

I now have another problem though.

The setup file appears to run on the machine that it is packaged on however when moving it to another computer it fails to open. A process sits in process monitor but nothing happens.

Hi Sasquatch,

Can you please send all test files (or a link to download) on a vbox@enigmaprotector.com? So we will be able to test it?

Difficult to say where is a problem without testing the files.

In your case setup file extracts another setup file to temporary folder. This child setup in temporary folder does not see .ini file and does not start. This is a core of problem.

Using option "Share Virtual System to Childs Processes" in Enigma Virtual Box will fix your problem and virtual file will be working well.

On what Windows version packed file does not work? To what PC you have moved it?

Hi,

I moved it to Windows 7 x64 and also Windows Server 2008 x86 SP2.

I tried on both local machine and a machine being run under vmware and none worked.

Thanks again,
Sean

I think there is a problem with files virtualisation and this setup.

If I turn off files virtualisation it seems to run on all computers but when I turn it back on it just sits in the process monitor and does not open.

Can you please test this version:
http://enigmaprotector.com/assets/files ... 111216.exe

The bug that we found with the flash drive and windows xp is solved there, hope this will work in your case too.

Hi,

Unfortunately this has not been resolved. I've sent you another email with some examples created from this latest version.

One of them has a boxed file which I enabled file virtualisation on (does not work) and the other has a boxed file with file virtualisation disabled (works correctly)

Thanks again for your help.

Regards,
Sean
