MSI attempting to access/read passwd file.


There are reports in our environments that the newest WinRAR install on Windows 7 is attempting to access the C:/Program Files/McAfee/Solidcore/passwd file.

Since it cannot access this file, the install crashes.  Anyone know why WinRAR would be attempting to access the passwd file?

From what I can see the passwd file is the password file used to recover the Solidcore commandline.

In the event logs, the error being thrown is a 1310 error, 'Error 1310.Error writing to file: C:\Program Files/McAfee/Solidcore/passwd. Verify that you have access to that directory'

We're currently running Solidcore/Application Control 6.1.2.

Thanks in advance!
