Good Morning,

I'm wondering if someone can help me out with the following question. I've been tasked with packaging Adobe Life Cycle Workbench 10.0 which is a nightmare of an application.

I have managed to get the application repackaged in Wise 8 and running in windows 7 (from what i can see it opens ok ect)

One thing I did noticed however during the setup capture, is that the native install (InstallAnywhere) installs a versions of Java FX 1.0 which has been discontinued.

The Setup capture gives me some errors in regards to some of this java.dll not registering correctly. I've tried to look for the same version of java and tried installing it before the capture but have had no luck.

After running dependency walker I realise that some of the java.dll are not able to register because the applcation is looking for IESHIM.DLL and GPSVC.DLL which are both 64 bit components, hence the java files cannnot register.

As mentioned before the app seems to work ok after the repackage, however i would like to fix this warnings, and i'm not really sure how.

Also as part of the recapture I picked up some stuff under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Wow6432Node which i know are the redirectors for dlls. I'm not quite sure what the 'best practise' would be in regards to this registry key.

 

As i'm a x64 repackaging newbie i'm wondering if someone out there might be able to answer the following questions for me.

 

Regards

Seems to me that the application is native 32bit?

Why not try to repackage the application on a 32bit machine?

Ok thanks, so the best option seems to be to repackage the application in a 32 bit version of Win 7, and let the folder redirection inside Windows x64 handle the installation on 64bit system correct?

  • correct, as long as the application is 32bit , there is no need to repackage on a 64bit machine.

Thanks guys for all your comments. Managed to pre-install the java FX and recpatured the entire install. All dll's have registered correctly, and now have even managed to profile the application on Xenapp, which is no zero foot print on the SOE. Thanks for all your help.
