Update java service

Fri May 08, 2020 11:02 am

We are using Advanced Installer to Install Java Application as a service. How ever I couldn't update the installation later. The same is working if I run as a console application, but it is converted into service, the update is not working any longer. It is downloading the aiu file to the updates folder, but the MSI download is not happening.

Any pointers on how to update the java services ?

I am not quite sure I understand your scenario here.

If I understand correctly, you are saying that if you change the "Application Type" of your java product (your project --> "Java Products" page --> "Settings" tab) from "Console" to "Win32 Service", the update is no longer working (by not working, I mean that the MSI file is not downloaded)?

Honestly, this does not make much sense, as this should not affect the Updater behavior.

Please make sure that your provide a correct URL for your upgraded version.

Additionally, please make sure that the Updater is not blocked by a firewall / AntiVirus software, as this might block the download process.

Hope this helps.
