Activate Package Installation Checker


Before uploading your Activate Product Package to Marketplace, use the Activate Package Installation Analyzer to test if your Activate Package will cause any issues.

The objective of the Activate Package Installation Analyzer is to test your package before uploading it to Marketplace. It checks that customizations made prior to installing the new Activate Package are not lost. It also checks that resources are not broken. By using this tool alongside your ESM Console, you can see how your ESM will react upon installing and uninstalling the package.

- Installs pre-required packages
- Installs and uninstalls test package
- Runs .bat file
- Runs resvalidate after each test

Note: It is recommended to take a snapshot of your VM before running the tool so that no data gets corrupted. In the event that data gets corrupted, you can revert to the snapshot.

Note: Be sure to read through the terminal output. One thing to look for in particular is missing required resources. If a required package is missing and/or not installed, then there will be a prompt for user input, then the program will continue to run through the rest of the tests.

Note: Input is not case sensitive
