I am trying to certify apps on a clean Windows 8.1 virtual machine. It's pretty much an out of the box setup with a couple of apps on it and Windows App Certification Kit 3.4. Well, I am FAILING all of my installers on the error below, but if you notice the error is actually error-less. There are no errors produced.
I've reinstalled WACK and submitted my installer projects to the developer of our installer software. They were able to successfully pass the step. I simply have no idea how to deal with this at this point.
It's a standard EXE and MSI project. No click to run.
