I want to run a program in a container. Specifically it’s called ClipGrab (https://clipgrab.org). The setup program proceeds up to a point where it asks to start Clipb, but then nothing happens. I go to VTRoot Program files and try and start it from there. I then get a series of warnings that a python dll file is not found. However, I see that Python is actually installed as part of the setup program and the “missing” dll file is there. As a result the program does not run in the container. AM I doing something wrong?
Because it doesn’t actually get installed properly in containment, as the container is very restrictive and has many compatibility issues with running applications fully virtualized. Also, the proper way to run an application that has been installed in containment, is to run a virtual instance of windows explorer, and browse to the install path within the contained instance of explorer.
On my end ClipGrab installs and runs in containment ok. ClipGrab installation and ClipGrab first run (some setup is done) take quite a while to finish. Also, during ClipGrab install and run ClipGrab asks for a lot of internet connections which have to be granted.
I’ve downloaded a YT clip with ClipGrab as a test, all works nicely from within containment.
