Process completed with exit code -1073741502
Good day everyone.

I have a run program task in Visual Build that keeps failing as follows:

8/26/2014 2:38:27 PM: Building subroutine step 'Obfuscate'...
"C:\Program Files (x86)\LogicNP Software\Crypto Obfuscator For .Net 2013 R2\co.exe" projectfile=E:\Builds\15\eEye.RetinaCS\Mainline-Release\Sources\Setup\ScrambleTheCode.obproj

Process completed with exit code -1073741502
8/26/2014 2:38:28 PM: Step 'Obfuscate' failed

This is a Run Program Task that calls the Crypto Obfuscate command line exe. Here is the XML snippet from the build file:

%OBFUSCATION_EXE_PATH% projectfile=%PROJDIR%\ScrambleTheCode.obproj

Any help would be really appreciated.

If the process is actually completing its work and returning a spurious exit code, you could ignore that particular code by adding it to the Success exit codes field.

You should be able to reproduce the problem outside Visual Build by running a Command Prompt under the Administrator account and creating and running a batch file as described in the 2nd post at

Yeah, we were able to reproduce the same error using a batch file

Our Build Controller runs as NETWORKSERVICE and the Run Program Task needs to run as administrator and it seems like this elevation fails within the build process.

Not sure how to resolve it......

Does the program really need elevated privileges? Maybe that could be fixed.

Otherwise, try something like elevate.
