on launch aplication pops up a warning message stating "Could not update the registry" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Anther interesting issue I am facing, this time though its not with the sequencer but with the client.

    Application works fine during the sequence. When it is pushed to the client and launched, it throws a warning pop up window stating Unable to udate registry, when we click okay ultimately the application would launch.

    things I have tried

    -While saving the package gave full permission to the Asset folder
    -Enabled Security descriptor, also tried with unchecking it
    -Added policies RUNASINVOKER  for compat layer and LOCALINTERACTIONALLOWED="TRUE"
    -Ran the shortcut as RunAs Administrator and still the warning window pop's up

  • Issue is resolved now. resequencing did the trick with the following actions:

    - Removed the following entries from the EXCLUSION LIST of the sequencer

             Ø  \Registry\Machine\software\Microsoft\cryptography

             Ø  %TMP%

             Ø  %CSIDL_PROFILE%\Local settings

             Ø  %CSIDL_LOCAL_APPDATA%

  • Use Process Monitor to determine which registry key the application is attempting to write to. Perhaps that key isn't in the package and you may need to add to the package so that the write can succeed.

  • How large is the application? And are you streaming it or deploying with the standalone MSI/caching fully?
