Issue with EFLOW LTS (AzureIoTEdge_LTS_1.1.2203.14042.msi)

Copper Contributor

There seems to be an issue with this particular version of EFLOW, where the license files are not installed.


When I tried call Deploy-EFLOW, I'm getting the following error.


PS C:\EFLOW> Deploy-Eflow -cpuCount 2 -memoryInMB 4096 -vmDiskSize 21 -vswitchName "Internal Switch" -vswitchType Internal

When I look in C:\Program Files\Azure IoT Edge folder, I don't see a LICENSE folder.

Thanks Peter for coming back and posting the issue link here! That's super helpful
I have same issue and that github post does not help. Any other ieda?
I suggest you open an issue on GitHub with details on your issue and someone from the EFLOW team should be able to help you.

@PeterLee thanks. My problem was PS x86.


One more question please: I was assuming to see EFLOW as a VM within Hyper-V in my machine. But it is empty. So I am wondering how EFLOW is virtualized. How does its VM run within Windows?



The EFLOW VM comes pre-installed with Azure IoT Edge runtime and is not meant to be manage through Hyper-V, so that is why you don't see it within Hyper-V.

Sure this I got it. But what VM technology stack does it us in Windows if it is not Hyper-V? Also, it requires Hyper-V to be enabled..
