I'm attempting to Thinapp Spatial Analyzer made by New River Kinematics. Seeing how they release a new version every couple of months, it would be spledid to just do a side-by-side update using a Thinapp package. The packaging goes smoothly and runs swell on Windows XP, but when attempting to run it on Windows 7 it crashes prior to launch and the Windows event log shows errors in faulting modules ntdll.dl and user32.dll on both 32 and 64 bit versions of Win7.
Windows 7 x64 is the most typical place this package would need to be run, so I also tried packaging it on a clean Windows 7 x64 machine. Results are the same though. The 32-bit version of this application runs fine installed natively on both 32 and 64 bit versions of Windows 7.
Any suggestion on how to get beyond this?
Yes. I tried this configuration too. Installed on a clean Windows 7 32 bit VM. The application ran fine. Ran the post-scan and packaged it up. Same results. Ntdll.dll and User32.dll throw faults.
Yes, actually there is. You can find it at the link below. That would be great. Being fairly new to Thinapp, I've tried everything I know of to try to get it to work. The application works fine natively on Windows 7 (both 32 and 64 bit), but I just can't get it to run Thinapp'd. Works fine on XP, but that isn't horribly useful to me since we have few XP workstations left that need to run this application. Thanks for spending the time!
I have downloaded the trial and gave a try. Here are my findings:
1. The application installs a driver component (Sentinel Hardware Driver) that cannot be virtualized
2. There are few kernelmode components installed that are not compatible
I guess I failed to tell you that we only want to virtualize it without the sentinel driver. Most people don't need that, because they're not generating data, just consuming it. Without that selected, I've never seen the kernelmode component warnings that you show during capture. Also, I know it can be virtualized, because it works on XP, it just can't be virtualized on Win 7 for some reason.
Did you try it without the sentinel driver? Just curious. I appreciate the try anyway.
Interesting. I didn't see any kernelmode warnings when I packaged on Win7. Anyways, thanks for trying. I guess I'll give up. I'll give you a "helpful" for spending the time to verify. Thanks for the effort.
