No log.txt or err.txt is created either, so what is going on?
I DO have the 'TortoiseSVN-126.96.36.19932-x64-svn-1.7.4.msi' included in the project as 'Copy always' with no build and like I said, the batch file runs fine when RDPed in.
Oh by the way, my WorkerRole is empty really:
public override void Run()
// This is a sample worker implementation. Replace with your logic.
Trace.WriteLine("$projectname$ entry point called", "Information");
File.WriteAllText("StartMessages.txt", "Run started...");
Actually both links above are from your blog. If I run the cmd file when RDPed in, it runs fine (with log and err created, but empty as you mentioned) but it DOES install, but not with the StartUp task.
I am puzzled since I have used the StartUp to register ports and set up WCF service, but the install does not occur and originally I thought it might be my installer, so I tried third part installer as you can see.
Anyone having success with running msiexec.exe for simple installs?
start /w msiexec.exe /i "%~dp0TortoiseSVN-188.8.131.5232-x64-svn-1.7.4.msi" /qn /l* "%~dp0InstallLog.txt"
and published my project. No InstallLog.txt! I ran the cmd file locally and it got created with log, so I think the StartUp is not even getting hit which is weird since I have successfully used it to launch 32 bit process previously and it not very complicated
this time. Just a 'simple', elevated commandLine one!
