Is this project still active? Can't install on Win2012x64

Jul 12, 2016 at 1:22 PM
I'm trying to install this onto Windows 2012 Server x64.

I've downloaded the x64 package and each time it just comes up with an error saying it couldn't register the service.

I've tried manually registering the dll, and also tried uninstalling and using the x86 package, again no go.

It's a long time I did not work with this code.
Anyway, I have just tried to install it on Windows Server 2012 x64 without issue: I mean I just run the installer without issue and I can see the dll registered with regedit.

I would need more information on the error to help you (screen shot, specific steps to reproduce, etc...).

Thanks for the reply.

Using the latest package Homelidays Session Service 1.0.12 x64, when I try to install I get this error.


If the pic doesn't show please see the link here.

Just says "failed to register. HRESULT -2147024769. Contact your support personnel."

The error code I can see in the screen shot indicates a corrupted or a missing Visual C++ runtime.
Please make sure to extract the zip archive before executing the setup, then run setup.exe and not setup.msi.
Setup.exe install as a pre requisty the Microsoft Visual C++ runtime while setup.msi won't install it.

I hope it helps and please let me know.
