SNAP IN Trouble with Version 1.3.4 and Client 0.11.9

  • With version 1.3.3 I was able to install Firefox and google chrome with no problem and now with the 1.3.4 it will just say Firefox installed and its not really installed, I used the same command switches as the 1.3.3 and now it doesn’t want to work. It was working fine with 1.3.3 and client 0.11.7 any ideas of what I might be doing wrong?

    how long does the client takes to communicate with fog server?

  • @asbenavides Just a thought, considering the exe is no longer an “MSI” you might want to remove the template and just add the -ms argument to the “Snapin Arguments” section.

    Make the Snapin Run With blank
    Make the Snapin Run With Argument blank
    Change Snapin Arguments to just -ms

  • @Joe-Schmitt okk ill try different methods…thanks so much for your help

    @asbenavides Firefox does not publish MSIs for their software. Firefox’s offline exe installer already has a silent mode: setup.exe -ms (assuming it hasn’t changed). Or see if that place offers an offline msi, and not a stub. Ultimately however, this is no longer a client issue.

  • @Joe-Schmitt i download it from because its the only place i could find the msi for firefox

    @asbenavides that means its an issue with your snapin:

    The snapin runs and returns an exit code of 0. One thing I noticed is you’re using the stub installer. How come? The stub installer requires downloading a lot of additional files during installation (it’s basically just a wrapper that downloads firefox).

  • @Joe-Schmitt ok just did and the setup went thru but firefox is not installed

    You need to hit Reset Encryption Data on this host in the fog web portal.

    @asbenavides on the computer with the client it will either be at C:\fog.log or C:\Program Files (x86)\FOG\fog.log

  • @Tom-Elliott sorry about the mistake on the client I meant to say 0.11.8

  • @Tom-Elliott where can i find the client log?

  • How did 0.11.7 and 1.3.3 work? 0.11.8 should be the version for 1.3.3. It was released in 1.3.1 RC 5, so 0.11.8 would have been available for official 1.3.1 through 1.3.3.

    Either way, can you upload the client logs?
