This article provides a solution for running AXupdateinstaller.exe devinstall that fails on platform update 12.
Please request an AOT package specific for PU12 from your local Lasernet reseller.
Due to Microsoft hchanging the admin rights on their VM images in a Microsoft subscription, we had to change our AOT package starting from Platform Update 12. Developers that are using AXupdateinstaller.exe devinstall to install our software will face the above error.
Applying the same package through LCS will work without any problems.
