Install from Scheduled Task fails with "acess denied"


Recommended Posts

Hi,

id like to Install PDN automatically via Win 10 Task Scheduler. It seems not to be possible.

 

in pdnSetupShim:

OurCreateProcess: CreateProcessW() returned FALSE, error = 5

 

i tried without switches and also /auto and /createmsi

The Task will be run from an Administrator account "interaktive" "highest privileges". Even disabling UAC approval mode doesnt help.

 

The Installer wont continue  if startet from a task Scheduler process.

Any Ideas?

best regards

Markus

Has this worked on previous versions? What version of Windows? And why are you using a scheduled task?

 

If you're doing a deployment across many machines, have you thought about using an MSI ? https://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/UnattendedInstallation.html

I tried paint.net.4.0.13.install.exe and paint.net.4.0.14.install.exe the only difference is in pdnSetupShim.log.

4.0.13:

Launching paint.net installer. bRebootRequired=false
Done. nReturnVal=-1
Sleep(1000)
--- Exiting, nReturnVal=ffffffff

4.0.14:

Launching paint.net installer. bRebootRequired=false
OurCreateProcess: CreateProcessW() returned FALSE, error = 5
OurCreateProcess: dwRetVal = -1
Done. nReturnVal=-1
Sleep(1000)
--- Exiting, nReturnVal=ffffffff

 

 

It is Windows 10 , 1067 64bit.

 

The scheduled task is to provide some sort of an auto update process for a golden master template.

 

a better alternative if i could use the builtin updater in an automated way. is this possible?
