Windows 7 and System update 4

I am having some problems with System update 4 on some Windows 7 Computers.  The install completes successfully, however I am not seeing any icons either on my desktop or start menu.  And when I attempt to run tvsu from C:\Program Files\Lenovo\System Update, I will see the splash screen, but the application will not open.  The systemupdate service is started and I can see a process called susevice.exe.

 

I don't know why but this happened on the last two installs, we do have some clients that it is working on, but it was installed some time ago.

Re: Windows 7 and System update 4

Hi,
please check following reg key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Compatibility32
In case you can see there tvsu.exe entry, then delete it.
also check in registry if you see this key:
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\AppInit_DLLs
and his value is: "MsgPlusLoader.dll"    
HKLM\SYSTEM\Setup\SystemSetupInProgress    
value: 0x0    

These are just some and the basic reg keys, that are "queried out" by the start of TVSU.

Please note, that this is the new design, that when you install TVSU on a Win7 x64 bit, then there is no more TVSU option in Start menu. You have to use the Lenovo Experience, or ThinkVantage tools button, that you will see there. (sorry don't have the testing system next to me, else I could tell you the exact name)

In you situation I would advice following:
- make sure,that TVSU is closed
- go to registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Lenovo\System Update\Preferences\UserSettings\General
and change the value of "DebugEnable" to YES.
- start the TVSU again
- now this will capture some more info in following location:
%ProgramFiles%\Lenovo\System Update\logs
Open each log file and post here only the last parts of it (those, which belongs to the last start of TVSU)

This might help me a bit out.

Cheers

Re: Windows 7 and System update 4

There was no entry for tvsu.exe in the Compatibility32 directory.

The Appinit_DLLs registry key was blank, I added MsgPlusLoader.dll as the value

The SystemSetupInProgress key was already set to 0

 

This is a 32bit of Windows 7 and I don't have any other ThinkVantage software installed.

 

I also looked at HKLM\Software\Lenovo\System Update, there were no sub directories after.

 

Here are some logs I found:

 

tvsu_exe:

Thanks for your help!

Re: Windows 7 and System update 4

Hi,
to me it looks, like if the TVSU cannot get the user informaitons. Please put you UAC to zero = dissable it and then try to run TVSU again. I Think, this might change this situation, as the user credentials cannot be accessed.
Also add permissions to Everyone + NETWORK Services over the  %programfiles%\Lenovo\ folder.

Let me know, if this changes anything.

Cheers

Re: Windows 7 and System update 4

Same problem when trying to run System Update through a remote desktop session (aka RDP).

 

Everything is ok when running System Update through a local session.
