Building several ism on same build agent


I have a build agent which builds a number of different ism projects.

The build agent has a valid stand-alone build agent license and I am able to build the first ism. However the next ism fails with:

[08:45:15][Step 10/17] InstallShield (R)
[08:45:15][Step 10/17] Release Builder

[08:45:15][Step 10/17] Suite\Release - 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)

If I have the build agent sleep/wait before trying to build the next, it works fine.

Does anyone have any ideas?

with regards, Thomas

I have the same problem with the InstallShield 2012 Spring SP1 Standanlone build.

What I have tested:
Define each VS project (csproj) separatly in the build definition and call all projects with a 1 minute time delay (BuildProcessTemplate modified).
=> No changes!

We have only one standalone concurrent licence, but a lot of project with 2 ism to build in the same VS solution.

Any ideas?

Hi all,

IS2012 Spring

We have used the Flexera support to solve the problem.
The problem exists in our system only with concurrent licenses and digital signing is used inside the setup.

We have made many test to detect the problem in the digital signature.

InstallShield use the 'Signtool.exe' V5.2.3790.1830 for signing.
Replace the 'Signtool.exe' in InstallShield (system folder in InstallShield) with the 'Signtool.exe' (V6.1.6700.16385) from the Windows SDK 7.1 (C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.1\bin).

This solution works for us in many projects.
