Repackaging causing a Windows to reconfigure app at Restart
Hi Folks, I need a tip.
I have a small application called Autobahn toolbar (a financial app), its in an *.exe format. I am trying to repackage it into a *.msi as per our corporate policy. The only change I make is I am changing the installdir from APPDATA in the user profile to C:\program files (x86).
The problem I have is after the repackaged msi is installed and the PC is restarted I get a windows installer message saying "Windows is configuring Autobahn". It does not do this with the *.exe obviously
The problem is that it is doing so at EVERY PC RESTART (take about 5-10 seconds to complete). The repackaged app works, but these setup messages are a nuisance.
Got a clue?
I just realized that the app is autostarting after login so I am checking this out.

This could be because of the followings
1. You might have included any temporary files with keypath in the msi package. Exclude the unnecessary registry/files from the msi package
2. Permission issue, Use ProcMon to identify the registry/file/folder permission issue.
