Installation during sequencing stuck at regasm. Local Install works fine. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi There,

    I am trying to sequence an application which registers some dlls using regasm. This application installs fine locally on the sequencer machine. But when I try to sequence it and run the installer it freezes/does not proceed beyond the regasm bit. Not sure how to proceed with this one. Has anyone seen this behavior before? Happy to provide more info.

    Regards,

    Vithal

    Make sure you create a Addin package. Choose Excel as the Main process.

    When the appv Sequence hangs on regasm. Open up process explorer (wininternals). Find the subprocess of the CrmsClientInstaller_2010.12.2.exe should be N<randomlettersnumbers>.tmp.

    Kill this process 5 times and regasm fails (5 x limit).

    The installer will report it has successfully installed ( but it hasnt obviously.)

    Click <run> to run another process. Browse to Q:\<calibre install directory> and run ReRegisterAA.bat.

    Wait for this to finish and then complete capture.

    Start excel.

    Do your usual cleanup. (may have to remove any resiliency stuff out of HKLM\WOW64..\Software\Microsoft\Office\Excel\Addin\Resiliency...)

    Done!

    Works.

  • Hello,

    Have you tried using a different sequencer version?

  • I am using 4.6 SP1. No, I haven't tried using older versions. Will give that a go.
