Issue/Introduction

When deploying the latest processes probe, OS reboot occurred on the robot where the probe was deployed.
 

Cause

In the VS2017 package version 1.00, there is no "norestart" option specified in the Post Install command.
So the Post Install might trigger OS reboot as part of the package installation.

Environment

Windows robot

processes probe is just an example.

This doc applies on all the non-Java probes (published roughly after end of october 2018) that has VS (Visual Studio) runtime 2017 as dependency. 



Resolution

Here is quick action list


  1. MUST DELETE the following packages from archive

 
                  (*) Mandatory for all UIM 9.0.2 users and UIM 8.X users those who imported these packages already.
 
vs2017_vcredist_x86 version 1.00
vs2017_vcredist_x64 version 1.00

 

  2. MUST DOWNLOAD the following packages (Available in http://support.nimsoft.com) and import them.

 
                  (*) Mandatory for all UIM users.
 
vs2017_vcredist_x86 version 1.01
vs2017_vcredist_x64 version 1.01



For the probes having dependencies to VS2017, we need to ensure that the “Type” is “ge” for vs2017_vcredist dependency.

User-added image
As of writing this today, cdm 6.33 and robot_update 7.96 are required to change dependencies manually.
Please do this. 
  1. In archive GUI, double click cdm 6.33.

 
                  (*) Mandatory for all UIM 9.0.2 users and UIM 8.X users those who imported the package already.
 
[win64] – [Dependencies]. Double click vs2017_vcredist_x64. Change [dependency type] from [eq] to [ge]. Press OK
[win32] – [Dependencies]. Double click vs2017_vcredist_x86. Change [dependency type] from [eq] to [ge]. Press OK


2. In archive GUI, double click
robot_update 7.96 *(

 
                  (*) Mandatory for all UIM 9.0.2 users only.
 
[win64] – [Dependencies]. Double click vs2017_vcredist_x86. Change [dependency type] from [eq] to [ge]. Press OK
[win32] – [Dependencies]. Double click vs2017_vcredist_x86. Change [dependency type] from [eq] to [ge]. Press OK


3.  In archive GUI, double click any other GA probe with a dependency on the vs2017_vcredist packages and make sure that the dependency type is set to [ge] if the version is set to 1.00

 


Additional Information

Later releases of probes with a dependency on either of the vs2017_vcredist packages have had the Dependencies corrected.  For example, we see the following for the 6.42 release of the cdm probe:
