I've spent some time trying to get why Winbuilder did not work on my nice Windows 2008 R2 Server which our admin staff uses as developpment platform.
I had an error on BUILD stage RETRIEVE TOOLS telling that cmd.exe cannot be copied to [your project location].

While reading logs i found out that my %WINDOWSDIR% variable pointed to c:usersadministratorWINDOWS, folder that obviously exists and is a chrooted WINDOWS folder when using terminal server.

Once i found this out, i figured out what to do to run WinBuilder on my Terminal Server, here's the script:

@echo off

:: Getting current user session in install modus

change user /install

:: Loading Winbuilder

start /wait winbuilder.exe

:: Getting current user session back in execute modus

change user /execute

Hope it helps :)

PS: if you ask why i run winbuilder on a terminal server, there's a simple reason: The server is our IT staff server.

deajan, thank you for sharing this tip.

I hope it helps to make project developers more aware of this limitation. With some luck we might see this nuisance better handled in the future.

As for the previous posts, they were made non-visible to members as they are not related to this topic.

With my best regards,
