WiseScript executables can hang on exit on Windows 10

Wisescripts are never a good idea... I haven't come across many cases were it *had* to be used... if it gets that far a CustomAction (C/C++) would do the job, providing you handel rollbakc if in ExecuteDeferred.

Was never a fan of AdminStudio but didn't have that many problems even with complex captures...

And, frankly, the whole "oh, you just have to know your tools and O/S" thing to work around every problem is insulting. There are some problems you just cannot work around.
That was not to be insulting, but how many Packagers have you come across that had *no idea* what happens under the hood? (I used to do Wise/Altiris/AdminStudio Training and the standards ranged from "Can move a mouse without supervision" to real experts...)

I personally have gone as far as writing a filter drivr to get around access Problems, but that's a whole different level and a customer speocfic issue were Software and Hardware *had* to work together...

Still, at the end of the day as ever it's a case of Cost vs. Use...

You're missing something there, but I'll leave it up to you to figure out what that is. After all, you should know your tools.

No, not at all, your environment, your say of the matters. If you don't have a public cetificate for signing then it's your own fault if you don't have one for internal use in your domain... but I'll leave you to figure that one out.... (no insult intended). Back in the day there were *always* drivers that were not signed, have code-siging was a must before starting any packing projects...
Who the f*** is General Failure, and why is he reading my harddisk?
