I am working on my first GUI project with Powershell Studio 2015, and have run into an odd issue.
Let me preface this with saying, I have read the articles about creating responsive forms and have used that information extensively on my project.
Most of the functions that I have created in this script are stored in the globals.ps1 file, and the events on my forms call those functions.
I can run the entire application without fail from the IDE (i.e., clicking Run/Debug), but when I export the application to an executable, it fails at a very particular point. Essentially the form works in 3 high-level steps, each fired by a button control:
1) Query and select a target against which work will be performed
2) Collect credentials, authenticate against and open session to host
3) Do work
The first two steps work pretty well with good consistency, but the button to fire step 3 will cause the application to fail every single time.
I have tried adjusting the tasks that are actually carried out by the button (in the project, called $main_button_run) to more and more menial tasks in order to test and debug, but it fails regardless of what I configure it to do. Is there something i am missing here?
Currently the code that is fired by a button click is as follows:
Code: Select all
Write-Debug 'run clicked'
$main_label_elapsed_static.Visible = $false
$main_label_elapsed.Visible = $false
Code: Select all
# Checks for presence of security group, creates/attaches if necessary.
# A PS session is opened for the LogRun task, the root working path is
# set and the start time is stored. A folder is created at the root
# working path.
Write-Debug 'Logrun-Setup init'
$main_label_status.text = "Creating security group..."
$main_label_status.text = "Opening session..."
$global:jobList = @()
$global:startDTM = (Get-Date)
$global:RootPath = "c:\WorkSpacesLogs\"
$main_label_status.text = "Creating working directory..."
Write-Debug 'adding rootpath job'
Add-RemoteJobTracker -Name "CreateRootPath" -JobScript `
$global:RootPath = $args
Remove-Item $global:RootPath -recurse -Force -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue | out-null
New-Item $global:RootPath -type directory -force | out-null
} -ArgumentList $global:RootPath -CompletedScript `
Wait-Job -Name "CreateRootPath"
Write-Debug "LogRun-Setup Complete"
$main_label_status.text = "Gathering Workspace Logs..."
Is there something stupid here that I am not seeing?
