PACE suite, capture installation from remote computer

09/01/2015 1820 views
Hello again.

For capturing new installations I have clean virtual machine which I use to make capture and then snapshot back to clean.

Can I use PACE suite repackager from UNC in different machine?  Or is there some other way to keep machine as clean as possible? A partial install of some component maybe with package/project folder defined as UNC to other, more permanent computer where rest of the tools reside?

as PACE is .NET based, you will have to change the security on the capture machine to allow executing remote .NET applications / assemblies and then it should theoretically be possible. Remember that you will have to have the .NET run-times installed on your capture machine.

Jeez...why complicate things unnecessarily!?!

Put your packaging tool on one VM and capture your stuff with that. Install your normal client build on another VM and test the package on that.

It's really not hard...

  • Not hard, but if there is a way to run it from UNC that would be convenient in case I need to reinstall entire VM. OTOH, unlike most other professional packager tools this one is tiny, and not tied on one machine so installing it again after reinstall isn't pain in the a$$. So install, and keep projects on more permanent machine behind UNC-share it is.
