MFEagent.msi error when reinstalling agent

I'm trying to reinstall the ePO agent ( on a Windows 2003R2 server because the correct DAT version is not being updated on ePO.

Each time I try to uninstall or install a new agent I get the error "The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable. Click OK to try again, or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package 'MFEagent.msi in the box below"

Any idea's?  Could this be a windows or McAfee issue?

Its a McAfee Agent issue where ,msi file is missing from common framework folder, Do below steps to resolve the issue.

  1. If you have old package ePO agent ( than extract into folder and save it on machine desktop.
  2. Use new package and run it from cmd.exe with command Framepkg.exe /install=agent /forceinstall.
  3. During Agent install if you get .msi missing popup than navigate to folder which was saved on machine desktop where MFEagent.msi will be present.
