Issue



The Check HTTP Connection action always returns a failure code, indicating that the web page is not available, when the .exe is run as a non-admin user.

Environment



Wise Installation System 9.02
Wise Installation Studio 7.x
Wise Package Studio 7.X

Cause



When using the Check HTTP Connection action, a temp file is written to the root of the C drive. A user that is not an administrator, does not have access to write to this location.


Solution



There is no resolution or workaround at this time. Symantec is working towards a resolution and will update this article when a resolution is reached. Subscribe to this article if you would like to receive any updates.
