I am not able to install or uninstall Pulseway


Recommended Posts

I had installed Pulseway and then wanted to delete it but I was not able to find Pulseway in the control panel uninstall feature and so I tried manually uninstalling files but that also did not work. I tried running the .msi installer again but an error came up saying that Pulseway is already installed but it still was not showing up. Please help me with this.

I had very similar issues during testing of deployments. 

This is what I was did - :

1. Remove the service via command 

sc delete "pc monitor" 

2. Remove C:\Program Files\Pulseway folder.  (Not always was essential for me, but during my testing wanted to make sure i had a blank canvas)

3. Run the installation from the MSI to install Pulseway with default config.

4. At that point I could removed Pulseway from Control Panel \ Add Remove Programs. 

 

Hope this helps,

      We reinstalled Pulseway on a re-imaged system and after the install we noticed issues. In the patch mgmt section, the status was "assign failed" in red. We rebooted the system and then the service was not starting. We checked the service, it was set to start automatically and in the event log it was generating this error: "Service cannot be started.  The handle is invalid"  We removed the system from Pulseway, uninstalled, and reinstalled. Service is starting normally, but still getting the same issue of the patch policy failing to assign. I tried moving the system to another group that did not have a patch policy at all and got the same result.

      I've implemented a script that retrieves and stores the Windows Build Version number to a custom field in the system overview.   It works fine on MOST systems.  However, there are a small number systems that are unable to run the script.  The error message displayed includes: Start-Process : This command cannot be run due to the error: The system cannot find the file specified.
      I used the "Insert Output Variable Code" in the script and verified that it includes the inserted text "Start-Process -FilePath "$env:PWY_HOME\CLI.exe" -ArgumentList ("setVariable  .....".
      For some reason, a few systems do not seem to have the environment variable PWY_HOME set.
      It appears that these systems are using the Enable PowerShell User Impersonation option under Pulseway Manger > Settings > Runtime.
      What is the easiest way to make sure that all of my systems have the PWY_HOME variable set so that any future scripts will not fail because of a missing environment variable?
      Thanks,
      Brant

      I just ran an Assets Overview report using a defined scope. The scope is showing all pcs and macs but the report is only showing pcs. Is this a bug?

      If i enable 2fa on the PSA and use the new ticket integration in WebApp i get a 500 internal server error when we click on tickets. If we remove the 2fa from PSA it works fine.
