Exponent Texture Analysis

Version :- 4.0.9.0

Type :- MSI

Issue :- Drivers compatibility and post configuration.

Solution :- 1] We have downloaded latest drivers compatible with windows 7 64-bit and installs through custom actions using dpinst.                                                                                          
2] Application requires full permission on "C:\Program Files(x86)\TE32" and "KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Stable Micro Systems\TEE32".                                
3] Application post configuration would be done by end user.                                          
4] Since application requires post configuration settings, which would be done by user (as per the intake). Hence application full functionality testing is not possible.                            
5] Following merge module has been added:                                                                       - policy_8_0_Microsoft_VC80_ATL_x86
- policy_8_0_Microsoft_VC80_MFC_x86
- policy_8_0_Micro…

You can add a script from the .osd file of a SoftGrid-enabled program to a client that has the necessary interpreter installed.
To include a script in an .osd file, you must determine the following:
• When the script runs
• Where the script runs
• How the script runs

All scripts must be added between the tags in an .osd file. You can refer to an existing script by its file name. Or, you can enter the exact syntax of the commands in the script section.

When the script runs
You can use the .osd file to run scripts at various times during the startup of SoftGrid-enabled programs. The "SCRIPT TIMING and EVENT"…

This error indicates that there is a mismatch between the package name of the original package and that of the upgraded package. This results in the App-V client incorrectly determining that there is a duplicate GUID, when the PackageName for the two packages is same and the PackageGUID is different or viceversa. To successfully upgrade a package, both of the following conditions must be true:
1. The package GUID must be the same (the Version tag and VERSI…
