Asta Powerproject Error on launch (0xc0000142) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, trying to sequence Asta Power project. All seems to sequence ok, on launch on my client though I see:

    The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142)

    Eventvwr log:

    The virtual application 'C:\ProgramData\App-V\AACE7954-7F9F-4DDB-9EC0-024C1A75E948\80FB36CF-A08E-4421-B69E-FC76E791D332\Root\VFS\ProgramFilesX86\Asta\Asta Powerproject\Powerdraw.exe' could not be started because the App-V Subsystem 'Virtual Filesystem' could not be initialized. {error: 0x74300E0A-0x20006}

    I've seen articles talking about NtfsDisable8dot3NameCreation, this is set to a value of 2 on both the sequencer and client.

    The software talks to a license server but I have ran process mon and cannot see any access denied errors.

    Running app-v 5.1 sequencer, clients are 5.1 hotfix4 and 5.2

  • Have you tried launching the shortcut inside the virtual bubble? Have you tested with some other virtual packages, whether they are working fine?

  • Hi, yes trying to launch the application inside C:\programdata\appv\etc gives me the same result. Other apps are working ok.

  • I meant to open up the virtual bubble of the application and then try to launch the shortcut.Or use CMD as middleman to launch the shortcut.

    eg:

    cmd.exe /appvve:ProductID_VersionID (of the virtual package)

    and then open the shortcut inside this cmd.

  • Hi, I tried this command:

     cmd.exe /appvve:AACE7954-7F9F-4DDB-9EC0-024C1A75E948_80FB36CF-A08E-4421-B69E-FC76E791D332

    It returns the same error, the application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142).

  • Did you remove and add the package again after you changed the 8dot3 regkey?

  • Hello, I've tried installing to a PVAD and I get the same result.

    I did not need to change the 8dot3key, it was set to a value of 2 already.

  • Did you also enable it on your sequencer prior on creating the package?

  • Hello, no I've not been able to resolve this. In response to the last question, the 8dot3key is set on the sequencer and my client.

  • Cab you make the installer available on the net, so I could give it a try?

  • Hi,  which version of Asta?
    Tuesday, January 10, 2017 11:56 AM
  • Does the application install any Crystal Reports runtimes?

  • Sorry I'm not able to make this available to you because it requires a license server. The version I was trying to sequence was 14.0.01.128.
