Feature analysis or deployment comes to a standstill

During Unsupported Feature Analysis or Task 2 of the Application Deployment Wizard, the user can see the "Start searching for related objects..." message normally displayed in the status window. However, the program does not proceed. The EonADT[xx].exe process is still running in the Windows Task Manager.

Cause: One or more of the PowerServer Toolkit configuration files may have become corrupt.

Solution: Follow the steps below to fix the problem.

Step 1: End the EonADT[xx].exe process using Windows Task Manager.

Step 2: Delete all PowerServer-generated application files on both the PowerServer Toolkit machine and the Web Server.

  • On the PowerServer Toolkit machine, delete all files in the directory: \Appeon\PowerServer\Toolkit\Project\ApplicationName.

  • On the Web Server, delete all files in the application's deployment path (specified in PowerServer Toolkit Configuration > Application Profiles > ApplicationName > Application Profile Configuration > Basic Settings).

Step 3: Configure the Transaction Objects for the application in AEM Console > Application > Transactions > Transaction Objects.

Step 4: Run Feature Analysis or Application Deployment again.
