The C:\Windows\System32 Windows system directory does not allow files to be extracted to it and the application deployment is not marked as failed.

Problem

The Media application component does not extract files to the C:\Windows\System32 directory for a Windows-based application deployment and the deployment is not marked as failed.

This problem does not generate an error message.

Cause

The C:\Windows\System32 directory is a Windows protected directory that prohibits unauthorized file creation. The deployment is not marked as failed because the file extraction utility is not exiting with an error status.

Procedure

  1. Set full Administrator privileges for the Windows system directory to allow files to be extracted to the C:\Windows\System32 folder.
  2. Redeploy the Windows-based application.
