Custom package ePO fails

Hi there

I've been crafting a little tool in python and have been trying to include this into an ePO package.

All goes well untill i try to deploy the package. 

The tool runs on the target computer sucesfully, but somehow everytime ePO says deployment status: Failed.

I've tried multiple ways of returning an exit status from the program, used sys.exit(0), os_exit(0), exit(0), quit(0), raising a systemExit manually. All to no avail.

Now i'm trying to run the tool using a batch file. it tells me %ERRORLEVEL% is 0 when it finishes, and i exit using exit /b %ERRORLEVEL%

What could be causing this deployment to fail all the time? I thought it was the exitcode generated that might not be returning to the ePO server, but the batch file seems to recognise it so it should be alright.

I used Python 2.7 for the tool and compiled an exe using py2exe.
The ePO server is a 5.1 ePO server, the agent used is 4.8.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to make this deployment succeed? The tool runs, it's just ugly to have a "failed"  status in the console if its not necessary.

Thanks alot in advance for your time and replies! It would be awsome if I could get this thing running cleanly

Re: Custom package ePO fails

Can you please print and verify the errorlevel returned by the app that calls the batch file? We have very similar issue, a batch file called from java returns 1 under certain circumstances despite exit /b 0 is called as the last command. As a workaround try "exit 0" instead of "exit /b 0" to see if you have the same issue. And most important, is it the same when mcafee service is stopped?
