Need help for closing apps issue.
Windows 7 64-bit

Whenever trying to close "outlook","lync" services its also trying to close "Deploy Application Invoker" I'm assuming "Deploy Application Invoker" is related to Deploy-Application.exe file. By this its not communicating to SCCM after installation completed.

copying error report from log file.

Thanks in advance.

Can you paste the pre-uninstallation code? You may just have added something without knowing. It should look something like this:

Show-InstallationWelcome -CloseApps 'outlook,lync' -Whatever -Params -Here

Thanks CHiland for your response..

Here is my code..

Show-InstallationWelcome -CloseApps "communicator,outlook,lync" -CloseAppsCountdown 300 -PersistPrompt

Does removing 'communicator' from the closeapps argument help? If you only want to close outlook and lync, it should just be those two.

Communicator.exe service is used by lync 2010 version . lync.exe Service is used by 2013 version.

Can you copy and paste the contents of the entire Deploy-Application.ps1?
