Update fails with log: Windows process elevation was unsuccessful

Hi Support,

TMSFNCAppUpdate fails with as last log line:
2022-11-15 17:20:24: Windows process elevation was unsuccessful. Exiting update.

The demo update works OK

What to do?

Greetings Harald


Without additional information this is hard to determine.
Is the Elevate property True?
If you move the demo to the same folder as your application, does it still work?
Are you trying to update your application in a special folder? Or what are you doing differently from the demo?

With the help of Bob Swart we found the solution:

  1. You need to define : localversion=Appname.exe
  2. A .txt file probably also needs to be zipped before uploading to the webserver
