17:02 <RomW> Howdy

17:04 <Tank_Master> heyas

17:12 <Tank_Master> RomW, has anyone yet reported that boinc will not install on win8?

17:15 <Tank_Master> Failed to add user to the "boinc_admins" group (Boinc_master).

17:16 *** Haldrik has quit IRC

17:16 *** boerni has joined #boinc

17:17 <Tank_Master> sounds similer to trying to install on a domain controler

17:19 <RomW> yeh, i just haven't gotten around to figure out why

17:19 <RomW> It looks like the APIs are still there

17:20 *** whynot has quit IRC

17:20 <Tank_Master> my guess is MS has locked down account creation

17:20 <Tank_Master> might be some security change

17:20 <PovAddict> well a good start would be a GetLastError...

17:20 <RomW> who knows, the developer preview was meant for metro developers

17:21 <RomW> lol

17:21 <Tank_Master> heh

17:21 <RomW> i know, POV

17:21 * PovAddict crawls back under his rock

17:21 <RomW> The first step is actually running the installer so that it'll produce a log file

17:21 <Tank_Master> it runs fine on win8, if its already installed

17:21 <RomW> the log file will report the error code from GLE

17:21 <PovAddict> ah good, so it's already reported

17:22 <Tank_Master> wheres the log file located?

17:22 <PovAddict> just that it's on the log and not on the error popup

17:22 <PovAddict> Tank_Master: it's not created by default, you need to run the installer with some option

17:22 <Tank_Master> ah ok

17:22 <RomW> You don't get to control the message on the pop-up

17:22 <PovAddict> ohh

17:22 <RomW> You only get to report a success or failure with custom actions

17:24 <Tank_Master> well, if theres anything you want me to test, im willing to help

17:24 <PovAddict> I guess run the installer on a boinc-less win8 system

17:24 <RomW> boinc_6.2.14_windows_intelx86.exe /v"/l*v c:\boincsetup.log"

17:24 <PovAddict> with logging enabled

17:24 <PovAddict> but I don't know what's the switch to ena-- there you go

17:24 <RomW> lol

17:24 <Tank_Master> :P

17:24 <RomW> its in the docs

17:25 <PovAddict> well it's probably mentioned in boinc_6.2.14_windows_intelx86.exe /?

17:25 <PovAddict> but I don't have a Windows system handy

17:25 <Tank_Master> pfft, who reads docs?

17:25 <RomW> lol

17:25 *** Aeternus has joined #boinc

17:25 *** Aeternus has quit IRC

17:25 *** Aeternus has joined #boinc

17:26 <Tank_Master> does it metter what installer i use?

17:26 <Tank_Master> or doesn it need to be 6.2.14?

17:26 <PovAddict> I'd go for latest 6.12

17:26 <Tank_Master> yeah, 6.12.38

17:27 <RomW> it'll work with all of them

17:27 <RomW> its a generic feature built into the Windows Installer architecture

17:30 <Tank_Master> want me to send it to any particular place?

17:30 <PovAddict> how big is it?

17:31 <RomW> romw@romwnet.org

17:31 <Tank_Master> 1.4MB in txt format

17:32 <Tank_Master> 126k zipked :P

17:33 <Tank_Master> sent

17:35 <Tank_Master> ill bbiab

17:42 <RomW> Info 2835.The control ErrorIcon was not found on dialog SetupError.

17:42 <RomW> Failed to add user to the 'boinc_admins' group (BOINC Master).

17:42 <RomW> MSI (s) (98!90) [14:29:41:458]: Product: BOINC -- Failed to add user to the 'boinc_admins' group (BOINC Master).

17:42 <RomW> CustomAction CACreateBOINCGroups returned actual error code 1603 (note this may not be 100% accurate if translation happened inside sandbox)

17:44 <PovAddict> "ERROR_INSTALL_FAILURE", that's useless D:

17:45 <RomW> tell me about it... lol

17:46 *** [B^S]renemayer has joined #boinc

17:47 <PovAddict> ah, that's the return value of CACreateBOINCGroups::OnExecution

17:48 <RomW> hmmmmmmm

17:48 <PovAddict> RomW: where is LogMessage defined?

17:49 <RomW> probably in boinccas.h if it isn't a Windows Installer function

17:50 <PovAddict> ah I see

17:51 <PovAddict> it's not a global function, it's a method of the custom action class

17:51 <RomW> Looks like MSI changed their log format or something

17:51 <RomW> oh wait

17:51 <RomW> maybe not

17:52 *** boerni has quit IRC

17:53 <RomW> hmmmmm

17:53 <RomW> I'm going to have to put together another installer

17:53 <PovAddict> it looks like BOINC *is* controlling the message box text

17:53 <RomW> Looks that way

17:54 <RomW> I just that function incorrectly

17:54 <RomW> ugh

17:54 <RomW> I wrote it to boot

17:54 <RomW> hate it when that happens

17:54 <PovAddict> hm

17:54 <PovAddict> return value of GetLastError() needs to be passed to LogMessage?

17:55 <RomW> well the cheap easy fix is to log a INFO message with the same parameters first

17:55 *** Caterpillar has quit IRC

17:56 <RomW> Next will be to lookup the NetAdd function and see if it uses GLE

17:56 *** |Caterpillar| has quit IRC

17:57 <PovAddict> ah, I didn't even think that it might not

17:58 <RomW> The NetAdd API set is a carry over from the original Lan Manager/OS2 API set

17:58 <RomW> Well all the net* functions...

17:59 *** [B^S]renemayer has quit IRC

17:59 <RomW> lol, that LogMessage function hasn't been touched since 05

18:00 <PovAddict> nor its calls? :P

18:01 <RomW> Guess I wrote it good enough for most cases

18:02 <RomW> lol

18:02 <RomW> GLE isn't used by the Net* functions

18:02 <RomW> So there are only 5 possible error codes for that function according to the docs

18:02 <PovAddict> is it actually showing up in the log?

18:03 <PovAddict> I don't know what "MSI (s) (98!90)" means

18:04 <RomW> Look at CACreateBOINCAccounts.cpp

18:04 <RomW> Lines 225-247

18:04 <RomW> Something like that should have been in the groups code

18:05 <RomW> which is what i was expecting

18:07 *** boerni has joined #boinc

18:07 <RomW> As far as the MSI (s) stuff, it is probably some process/thread id stuff
