Unable to launche the executable file after the update
I have no luck in the French section of the forum so I'd like to try here. I can remove the other thread if you don't want duplicate content.
The virus protection of my company blocks the execution of vivaldi.exe (installed as a standalone version) so I always have to rename it (eg: viva.exe).
After an update I can't launcher the software. Here is the translation of the error message I have:
L'antivirus de mon entreprise bloque l'exécution de vivaldi.exe (installé en version portable). Après une mise à jour, impossible d'exécuter le programme :
The application could not start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. For more information, check the application event log or use the sxstrace.exe command line tool.
It seems that renaming the executable file is the reason why I have this message.
Is there a solution?
Thank you for your support.
@primokorn Fix the blocking of Vivaldi in your company AV first. There is nothing to be done before it's no longer blocked. Renaming the application will just lead to more problems.
@pathduck Unofficial supported browsers are tolerated but they will never modify their security policies for me...
@gwen-dragon Thanks but I have no admin rights.
I'll just be more careful for the next update by saving specific data.
@primokorn You don't need admin rights for a hard link.
D:\bin\Vivaldi\Application λ mklink /H chrome.exe vivaldi.exe Hardlink created for chrome.exe <<===>> vivaldi.exe
(I know I said so in that other post, I was wrong)
mklink /H chrome.exe vivaldi.exe

The term "mklink" is not recognized as a command applet name, function, script file or executable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path exists, check that the path is correct and try again.
EDIT: I use PowerShell. CMD has been disabled by the admin.
@primokorn Yeah, you can't run it directly from PS, it's part of
cmditself. Your admins sure are a paranoid lot...
cmddirectly in PS window and then run
Might be some solutions here:
@pathduck The command worked using this:
cmd.exe --% /c mklink /H chrome.exe vivaldi.exe
But I still get the same message.
Thanks for trying.
