The upgrade from robot version 7.92HF3 to version 7.92HF9 fails with error: "inst_execute failed: error" when deploying robot_update with IM or Admin Console. 


The error seen is: 

(1) error, Received status (1) on response (for sendRcv) for cmd = 'inst_execute' 







Ade log:

\par com.nimsoft.ADE.core.DeploymentException: (1) error, Received status (1) on response (for sendRcv) for cmd = 'inst_execute' 




UIM 8.xRobot update from 7.92HF3 to 7.92HF9

The upgrade from 7.92HF3 to 7.92HF9 fails because of an empty value for the variable "PATH=" like the below in the environment variables in the robot.cfg:



      NIM_JRE_HOME = jre/jre7

      NIM_JRE_HOME_1_7 = jre/jre7

      PATH = 





To resolve this remove the "PATH=" from the robot.cfg.

1) open the controller GUI 

2) go to Setup>Environment tab (Environment Variables)

3) delete the PATH variable which has an empty value


Test the robot_update upgrade again
