    Is it even possible - Agent bundled in Designer?


      Hi Folks,


      Tearing my hair out here.


      I'm looking to create a package that will install VirusScan 8.8 and Agent 4.6 (in Managed Mode). I plan to use it in an scripted build process we have.


      I'm using Installation Designer 8.8 and I can get both Engine and Agent installed silently from the package, but I can't get the Agent to set-up in Managed Mode.


      If I manually run Framepkg.exe it will install the 4.6 agent and will check-in fine to EPO.


      After consulting the Installation Designer Product Guide I noticed the following statement.


      "If you include an ePO agent in the installation package using the Programs option, and want to disable the single tray icon  . . ."


      So I assumed that the framepkg/ePO agent should be added into Designer as a Program to run after installation. When I try this I see the following in my logs.


       Existing setup program=c:\program files\McAfee\Common Framework\frminst.exe
       MSI returned error 1618: Another installation is already in progress. Complete that installation before proceeding with this install 


      The Agent instalaltion is then rolled back.


      I've spent a couple of days searching for an answer and I can't see instructions anywhere to show if the agent can be bundled into the same package as the VirusScan engine and still check-in.


      Anyone have ideas on this?
