Facing a strange but unknown issue. Actually, I am repackaging an application using Wise setup capture. Now when I install the application to test before carrying out the repackaging it works perfectly fine. Now in the same machine once I run the innitial Wise setup capture and then try to install the application in order to capture the installation, the installation freezes and does not move forward. I have tried a number of times but everytime it freezes. The application is a SQL based application and as far as I am aware Wise faces problem with SQL based applications. Could someone throw some light on this and help me to solve the issue..

Does the application you are capturing make use of ODBC connections at all ? If so, it might be worth a try disabling the Capture non-Microsoft ODBC information option in your setup capture options and repeat your capture.

You should also obtain a verbose log file of the installation and examine the last few lines up to the point the installation hangs for clues. You could always post the few lines here (remember to use CODE tags) for further help if you are still stuck.

Try this

1. Take Initial scan using Setup Capture
2. Close Wise and Setup Capture programs
3. Install the Application
4. Launch Wise and Setup Capture
5. Take post scan and generate your WSI

Let me know if this works.

Wise faces problem with SQL based applicationsThat's news to me.

Are you running the install "inside" Wise SUC? I never do that, irrespective of which tool I'm using. I always run the actual install outside the control of the capture tool and use something innocuous as the target for the capture tool, if indeed a target is needed. Notepad is good because it does nothing to the environment in between launching and closing.
