NSClient++ Help (#1) - Unable to Install Service (#422) - Message List
I have the following problem when trying to install nsclient++ onto a Windows 2003 Server SP2 (note this is a member server).
Using a local administrator account on the server trying to install the install completes but the service does not get registered trying to manually register gives this error:
C:\Program Files\NSClient++>nsclient++ -install e NSClient++.cpp(212) Service installation failed: Unable to install service.5: Access is denied.
This occours on any version of nsclient++ right up to the latest release which makes me think its a problem with the server. I've also tried as the domain admintrator account too and have the same problem.
Does anyone have any idea what is causing this and what i should do to resolve?
Try doing a msiexec /l* log.txt /i <msi> and email me the log (michael<at>medin<dot>name) and I shall look at it.
In the log it should hopefully say some more things.
I shall see if I can extend the logging in the next build as well...

As for resolving, you can always just install it manually.
Maybe I should add a "ignore button" so you can ignore the error?
What it tries to do is register the service...

Thanks for your replies.
I installed the nsclient++ and it unpacks the files fine, it just fails at the installation of the service, therefore i tried to register the service manually but got the error above.
However i just had another look at it and seem to have sorted the problem.
RESOLUTION: I ran "FileMon?" tool from SysInternals? which installing the service, and found access denied errors. But permissions where not the problem. It turned out that Sophos Anti-Virus thought the "Nsclient++.exe" was a virus. Once I authorised the nsclient++.exe file in Sophos the service could install and run fine.
