B1DE 1.2 installation issue

I am posting this topic for information rather than as a question.

I have been using B1DE 1.1 for a while without any problems.

Having installed B1DE 1.2 on two patched-up XP SP2 machines, I have found the following:

1. Notebooks can no longer hibernate or suspend. The even log claims the process preventing this is svchost.exe, but this is a red herring.

2. No other software installations are possible. For instance, Microsoft security updates fail when installing. But the same goes for other SAP software installations.

On further inspection, it turns out that the 1.2 installation appears incomplete to the Windows Installer. The symptom of this is that a couple of msiexec.exe processes are started after every reboot. These need to be killed if hibernation/suspension requests are to be successful. Also, once killed, further software installations can go ahead, though in the course of installation, the Windows Installer requests that actions from an incomplete installation of the SAP Business One Development Environment are rolled back. Doing this seems to have no effect on B1DE which is good I suppose.

The only solution appears to be to uninstall B1DE 1.2 from Add/Remove Programs.

I realise that B1DE is an unsupported piece of software, but it would be great if the installation routine problem can be looked into.

Cheers,

Ondrej

    Hi Ondrej,

    I have B1DE 1.2 for B1 2005 SP01 installed in my machine (Windows XP SP2) and I don't have any problem with hybernate.

    I can put my labtop in and out of hybernate mode and I have no problem with running B1DE tools like B1DbBrowser or the code generator wizard after that...

    There are some problems with Windows XP SP2 regarding hybernate, with an error message "Insufficient System Resources Exist to Complete the API" (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/909095/en-us). It doesn't seem to be your problem by just in case.

    Can you please check the registry value at: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\InProgress

    and

    HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Installer\Rollback

    ?

    These registries are kept in memory incase of an incomplete installation.

    Otherwise which B1 version are you working with? I have only tested with 2005 SP01.

    Do you install it to be run by everybody or "just me" option?

    Regards

    Trinidad.

      Well, in many ways it's nice to know that the problem may not be that widespread. I never had a problem with actually using B1DE once installed, but the installation was preventing other tasks after a reboot.

      The Microsoft KB article does not seem to be relevant, but thank you for forwarding the registry key information. I cannot check for the registry keys at the moment as I B1DE 1.2 is off my machines.

      I am using SAP Business One 2005 A SP01 PL11, though I don't think this is relevant. The install option was for "everybody".

      Thank you for replying, I think we can close this. I will try 1.3 sometime soon.

      Cheers,

      Ondrej
