I have built one using ThinApp from vmware, but it will not connect to the database. Does anyone have any suggestions?
What version of LANDesk 8/9?
I am trying the same thing with 8.8 SP4 using ThinApp 4.5 (from LANDesk).
It can't connect to the database.
Doesn't work on XP (32bit) either.
It says "Connecting to the Database" for a minute or so and then comes back with the error:
"Console Initialization Error: The connection was not closed. The connection's current state is open."
Yes, these are the exact issues I am seeing. I wonder if an ODBC connection or something is not being picked up by the virtualization capture.
Currently I am trying 8.8 SP4, but I am interested in upgrading to 9 in the coming month so I will also try 9 unless they support x64 9.0 Additional Console's in the next 30 days.
So I just started up a similar post except that I'm using App-V to try and virtualize the console. What I find interesting is that using a different application virtualization product yields the same result. I too am getting "the connection was not closed" error. I followed the post in http://community.landesk.com/support/docs/DOC-5887, but it didn't resolve anything. I am starting to think this is more an issue with .Net than with the Landesk console installer. I'm trying some different options with App-V and how I'm installing .Net before inside the snaphost so .Net is part of the package.
Please, for the love of god... if you figure this out let us know!
I am using the XP-Mode under WIn 7 x64 to run my LDMS 8.8 SP3 console. The loading performance is less than spectacular, but not bad once it starts. Remote control works with a domain logon as well. Not as nice as native, but it at least works...
