    EEDK 9.6.0\ePOSign.exe - System Error


      Here are the steps take to reproduce the issue with EEDK 9.6.0.


      My box is Windows 10 Anniversary, but the same steps were also taken on my Win7 box.  Both are x64.

      --- Obtain latest EEDK Package from https://community.mcafee.com/docs/DOC-3401

      --- Obtain a copy of the software intended for use with the EEDK package.



      1.) Unzip the EEDK package.  Windows systems, you may have to goto the properties for the compressed file and click unblock.

      2.) Create 2 directories in the unzipped directory.  Lets call them "_BuildFolder" and "_Software"

      3.) Extract the EEDK package and place the contents in the "_Software" folder.

      4.) Run EEDK.exe as administrator

      5.) In the EEDK GUI, Click Tools > Options

      6.) In Options, next to "Browse Folder", select browse and navigate to "_BuildFolder".

      7.) Click Save

      8.) At the very top is a section that reads "Select file or folder containing software package files(s):", leave the radial on "File", click "Browse"

      9.) Navigate to the software we are preparing for EPO Deployment.

      10.) Fill out the fields.  This is how the application runs and how its displayed in EPO's master repository.
