For reasons too complicated which I would not explain here, I am trying to prepare a “virtualized” version of Drobo Dashboard to run on a system to connect to the Drobo FS via a network connected via a gigabit switch. The virtualized version was prepared using VMware’s ThinApp Virtualization Suite.
The packaged worked, but ONLY on first run after a fresh reboot of the host system. If, within the same session, I exit to unload the Dashboard and then try to relaunch it, the app will crash citing DDService has failed. Again, this ONLY occurs on subsequent re-runs of Dashboard but NOT on the first run. Clearing out the “sandbox” does not fix the problem. Only a reboot of the system will fix the problem.
Obviously, my virtualized version of Dashboard can work, but somehow DDService is creating a problem. Is there any fix to this? Is it possible NOT to load or remove DDService part of the Dashboard?
