All,

I very very new to AdminStudio. I jsut install AdminStudio2014 on a Win 2008r2 x64 server. I created all the Folder shares and Added a Dekstop Shortcut on a Win 2008 x86 server (for Repackage of 32bit apps).

I ran the RePackager app on the x86 system, but when I selected "Build" to create the MSI file I received the following message in the Log file:

Starting conversion ...
The InstallShield build engine cannot be initialized and thus, we cannot build MSI files.

Please reinstall the product.

Conversion stopped with one or more error(s)..


So is Installshield required to be installed on the remote systems as well? The Flexera documentation does not indicate so.

Thanks,

kim

The error can be avoided by downloading and installing Visual C++ 2012 x86 Redistributable

Evan,

You are correct, that did resolve the problem. They should add this requirement to their documentation.

Thanks,
