Running IA generated setup on Windows docker image
I am currently in the process of creating a Windows docker image containing my product. to do this we want to run our IA generated setup silently using a response file which will configure it appropriately. We know this works fine on a VM.
We are using the full fat windows server image
Into which we silently install the Visual C/C++ 17 redistributable as we need it to run our native exes.
However when we run our IA generated setup (which has a bundled Java) the process doesnt start, it simply returns to the command / powershell prompt of the image when its spun up into a container.
I believe this usually means we are missing some component required for the exe to be loaded by Windows (like on unix when you are missing a dependant shared library). What i need to understand is what could be missing that is stopping the setup from starting.
Any ideas as i cant believe i am breaking new ground here.
