V2 Exception Handling and Run Issues

Feb 12, 2011 at 2:39 AM

Hi, 

Running the v2 .bat file successfully launches the second PS window, which then promptly dies with an exception displayed too briefly for me to read. Can I suggest the script be updated to catch all exceptions and display them rather than exit? 

Does the script otherwise generate any logs and if so where would I find them? I thought I saw some .rtf files on a desktop containing what looked like install log data but I deleted them and they haven't returned. 

Finally, I think I need to drop the main SharePoint installer .exe somewhere in the tree but is that the case? Will the prereq installer download for me if not? 

Thanks,

Ignore last question re. binaries--I think I've figured that out from the project homepage and the section about structuring the directory ;-)

Binaries now in place. I had been running the bat file from a UNC path as recommended by a blogger; running with the file copied locally was somewhat more successful. .rtf log file output to desktop of logged on user.
