#48 winexe fails unless debug turned on

I have found, when accessing a W7 machine from Linux using winexe, if the W7 machine is being used locally I often get a "failed to start winexe service" error returned.

However, if I add "-d 1" to winexe, enabling debug output, all works fine

This seems to suggest some kind of timing issue....adding debug output slows things down a bit, and all of a sudden winexe works fine.

Any ideas what may be going on here?

    Which version of winexe are you running?

    Have you tried running winexe built from the "current" (a.k.a. "winexe-waf") source tree?

      Hi,

      I built winexe from source:
      http://sourceforge.net/projects/winexe/

      running it gives me "winexe version 1.0"

      winexe -V outputs:

      Version 4.0.0alpha11-GIT-UNKNOWN

      It looks like that may in fact be old? I will try the latest from git
