[SOLVED] Renamed UNIFACE.EXE application cannot be started error 0x000020c
Author: email@example.com (Joanne Roberson)
Hello, I am at a customer site installing our application. (I tried to create a call, but got stuck in an endless loop asking for a CAPTCHA). I did send an email to customer support, but I had issues with that as well. So I will post what I sent to customer support in the hopes that someone has seen this before? Operating system: Windows 2008 R2 SP1 Database: Oracle 12.0.1 c, 64-bit Uniface version: 9.7.04 G408 As part of our installation we copy the UNIFACE.EXE to a folder and then rename it – in this case we call it HIS20_BATCH.EXE. When I tried to run this exe, I get an error that the application did not start correctly 0x000020c. When I start UNIFACE.EXE and pass it a startup shell name it works fine. Example:
DOS c:\his20\appl\his20_batch.exe /adm=<blah blah blah> /asn= <blah blah blah> “PARAMETERS” – I get the error
DOS c:\his20\uniface9\common\bin\uniface.exe /adm=<blah blah blah> /asn=<blah blah blah> HIS20_BATCH.APS “PARAMETERS” – it works I tried manually copying UNIFACE.EXE and renaming it (versus the installation doing it) and the error still occurs. I have checked the path to make sure there wouldn’t be any 32-bit DLLS getting loaded first, but then, that doesn’t make sense to me anyhow, since I can start the executable by passing I the startup shell name; it is just when it is copied and renamed that we are having the problem. The work-around is not really viable to the customer.
