How to extract the License Server installation from Visual Cobol 2.2

0 Likes

Problem:

In runtime version Server 2.1 Update 1 and earlier, it was possible to perform an independent installation for the Liense Server, by extracing it from the installation file using the -ExtractCab switch.

In version 2.2 this switch is no longer available, so how is this performed with version 2.2?

Resolution:

Attached to this article is an archive called "6644.dark.zip".

This utility is part of the WiX toolset, which can be used to create MSI’s and wrapper EXE’s.

Decompress the attached zip and run, for example:

 >dark.exe -x d:\decomp cs2010_22.exe

where:

d:\decomp is the folder where you want the files extracted to.

cs2010_22.exe is the "Cobol Server 2.2 for Visual Studio 2010" software executable.

Inside d:\decomp, is an ‘AttachedContainer’ folder which in turn has the various MSI’s and pre-requisite EXE’s.  The license server installation software is located in the sub-folder called lmsetup where lmsetupx86.msi is the 32-bit installer and lmsetupx64.msi is the 64-bit installer.

  • Chris,

    I used IOBIT uninstaller to uninstall ED and VC, unfortunately, it did not work.  It did however delete cs2010_22.exe.so I suppose the above fix will not work.  I am sorry I am making this so difficult for you.  Is there any way to use the registry to to delete ED and VC?not sure this is doable but I thought I would ask.

    Thanks,

    John
