Re: [Condor-users] update with zip vs msi package

Just a note,

you shouldn't go putting the msvcrXX dlls in the windows directory from (IIRC the 80 level onwards) they are handled by the Side by Side system (as Greg Hitchen mentioned)

After updating .Net framework to 3.5 it started to work. It as something to do with msvcr90.dll. It was in condor bin dir but not in the windows directory. That was the  difference from the working machine and the non-working one.

In the process of updating my condor pool to 7.2.5 i have encounter a issue on some of the windows machine with condor_master failing to start. But if i use the msi package it work fine.
After a digging a bit more a found in some thread that i'm not the only one that had this problem.  It has a something to do with dll file in provide by windows.

The way i work for updating my pool is repackaging the zip file with internal tool and install that. My question is what the msi condor package do so that condor_master is working but not working with the zip file?.
Is there any dll registration, regkey ?.....

The steps taken by the automated install that you will need to do (if you are installing for the first time from the zip file) are documented here:


Some of these steps include registering the condor_master with the Windows Service Control manager, having either a system environment variable or a registry key pointing to the config file, etc.

Hope this helps,
