Can't install Client Security via Policy Manager Console on local machine


I have big problem. I try install client security on PC where PMC is working and i receive this error:


Host Name       | Platform      |  Status message                                                                                                    | Win32 error code

LOCALHOST    | Unknown    | An attempt to start the installation failed. Unknown error. Access Denied.  |   5

I have administrator privileges, and active remote access on firewall. Even when windows firewall is off i receive the same error. Any suggestions?

    Please, note, that installation of PM Server on client OS is not supported officially. Only installation of PM Console is supported.


    florin, in your case partial success may indicate, that common module Uninstall wasn't updated because PM has a newer version. If that's the case your CS installation will work normally.


    grzegżółka, I'm not sure that PM Console is guilty in your case. MSI installer should help, if there are any access/credentials/communication issues.

    Export pre-configured .MSI package from F-Secure Policy Manager Console and install that on the client(s) via local run or MS AD GPO based distribution.
