I have an application built on VC++ 2008. (Available for both 32-bit and 64-bit). I can’t get it to run on a windows servercore container.
Following is the description of how the application works on windows host. (not container)
The application has a batch mode and can be started as follows
c:\somefolder\myapplication.exe -b -e inputfile.extn
-b for batch mode.
-e for specifying the input file argument.
When invoked, the application starts in a new console and performs what it is supposed to do the input file.
Following is how the application is setup on the host (where it successfully runs)
Install the vc++2008 redistributable
Copy the application (With all dependencies)
Setup license servers and few environment varialbes
I have done all of the above in container. But no luck. When I run “c:\somefolder\myapplication.exe -b -e inputfile.extn” on the container (I connected to container by doing docker exec -it powershell) nothing happens. No error messages, no output messages. The powershell stays active and receives next commands.
I have tried the following:
Run the application using Start-Process cmdlet. Tried the -NoNewWindow flag.
Checked the application eventlog. (Nothing there)
Checked the docker log file. I find following errors. But I don’t know what to do about them
