Silent Deploy Bartender 2016 R3 Register.exe error via SCCM (Under Local System Account) Follow
When carrying out a silent deployment of Bartender 2016 R3 via SCCM / or directly via command prompt under Local System Account I am experiencing the following error during the installation process. A Windows message box come up (tested on a Win7x64 & Win10x64 machine)
Register.exe - Application Error
"The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142). Click OK to close the applicaiton."
The command line used to do the installation is similar to below:
BT2016_R3_3094_Full.exe /s /v"/QB REBOOT=R ProductLanguage=1033 ADDLOCAL=BarTender EDITION=A PKC=xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx SLS_PRIMARY=servername:5160"
The Register.exe error message is only visible when installing under the local system account with interactive mode enabled. E.g. to reproduce the issue
- Open command prompt under Local System Account with interactive mode via: psexec.exe -s -i cmd.exe
- Run the BT2016_R3_3094_Full.exe /s ... silent install command
The installation test using psexec -s -i cmd.exe is meant to simulate deployment via SCCM with allow user interaction enabled...
The same installation command works fine when executed under a local admin account.
The Register.exe message does not come up under local system account if interactive mode is not enabled (psexec.exe -s cmd.exe) i.e. the GUI window appear to be suppressed.
Following is also observed when tested under the local system account:
- $BarTender_Security$ user is in the local administrator group.
- Windows local group policy "Allow log on locally" is NOT enabled for the $BarTender_Security$ account
Just wondering is this a known issue with Bartender 2016 R3?
