We have a problem with updating a Delphi 32bit executable while users are running this
executable on Windows 2008 terminal Server. The executable resides on a remote network
share from another Windwos 2003 File Server and is a single file of 10mb written in Delphi 7.
With the old 2003 terminal server we rename the .exe to .old and copy the new .exe.
Already logged on users continue with the old exe.New users are running the new exe.
Now with the new 2008 terminal server we do te same. Rename the .exe to .old and copy the new .exe.
Already logged on users continue with the old exe, no problems for them.
New users are running the old executable according to the main screen but get all
kind of errors (access violations) in de updated modules.
It seems that windows is trying to load the new exe partitially.
When logged on as a domain administrator there are many 100+ minidump....dmp files placed in the
directoty of the executable.
After killing the proces / program for each user the application working fine again if
the exe is started again. Then the new exe is loaded with no problems.
This is no option for us for each update.
Can anyone help with this problem?
