Hi i am in the middle of a mass roll our via EPO and i have 2 machines so far that refuse to install 8.7.
When i run the install manually the machines say that they are unable to start the services due to some permissions issue. This shouldnt be an issue logged on as the domain admin, and is fine on the other 100+ machines! One is Win2k and one is XP, i have also tried 8.5 with the same results.
I have had a long look on the web and not seem to have found the answer, if anyone can suggest something i would be very grateful, as i need to get it sorted today so i can have a weeks holiday in piece!
Also, when manually installing 8.7 it suggest you remove MS defender, why is this? is there a clash between the two?
I had this happen to one of my machines today. I'm not using EPO, at least not yet. I'm in the process of upgrading Protection Pilot to EPO due to McAfee ending PRP next summer. I was installing 8.7 manually as the domain admin and received a permissions error when the install was trying to start the services. The computer is running XP Service Pack 2. I closed out of the error and rebooted the machine. I was then able to install 8.7
