AppDynamics Node.JS agent on Windows crashes

Hi,

 

I'm trying to use appdynamics agent in a node app, but it silently crashes the entire app when I merely try to require it.

I tried to debug node when it happens and it seems to crash when calling process.dlopen and trying to load the zmq.node module.

 

Am I doing something wrong?

Re: AppDynamics Node.JS agent on Windows crashes

Hi,

 

It's a late reply, but your post helped me solve it :) the trick was installing the zmq package (https://github.com/JustinTulloss/zeromq.node) first.  Without it, the Server 2016 box just ran and instantly quit my node site.  To install zmq you need to install Python first (I installed the 2.7v) and then install an older copy of Visual Studio (Community 2013) to get the MSBUILD tools v2.0.

 

After Python, VS2013 and zmq it runs fine.  My app is now reporting its telemetry to appdynamics :) 

 

I hope this might help someone else in the future!

 

Kaylee.

Re: AppDynamics Node.JS agent on Windows crashes

Hi, we had similar issue. After adding require('appdynamics') nodejs process died.

One of our developers had found a solution. 

We were missing MSVCR120.dll, it's part of "Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2013".

Adding it resolved issue.
