We are in the process of migrating our current build server for which we have cloned the same and have the new build server ,now install shield fails on new build server.

Hey I believe you need to login to
then release the licence from your old server and then register it for your new one.

I was getting the same -7159 error when trying to call IsCmdBld from an InvokeProcess activity in TFS Build. The build agent was running as the local NT AUTHORITY\Network Service account. When that account was changed to a domain account with administrative privileges, the error went away.
