#271 wrapperw.exe gives strange dialog when requesting status

Service (34)
Sander Koning

One of our developers found the following problem in version 3.5.9.
When requesting the status of the wrapper service, or requesting it to uninstall, a dialog window pops up with strange contents:
- in the case of `wrapperw -qs`, two dialogs, each with the message "Z55".
- in the case of `wrapperw -q`, one dialog with the message "Z55".
- in the case of `wrapperw -r`, one dialog with the message "H55".

In version 3.5.14, the dialog does not appear anymore when using -r, but -q and -qs still yield the same dialog.

This is under Windows 7 Ultimate SP1, using Java 7 update 3.

  • Hello Sander,

    I'm very sorry for the trouble. I was checking and can confirm that a second dialog pops up when using the Wrapperw.exe application to interact with a service (i.e. install, remove, start, stop, query etc.)
    This is due to the fact that on the Wrapper creates actually a second, elevated process for all this actions. And it seems that the original Wrapper process does shows an dialog as well. I fixed this already and the dialog shouldn't show up anymore in the next release of the Wrapper.
    A quick workaround would be to start the Wrapperw.exe from an already elevated console when interacting with the service.

    I will let you know as soon as we will have released a new version of the Wrapper.

    Best Regards,
