Cause

Windows Remote Powershell is disabled

Resolution

 

Testing procedure to confirm the cause:

Step 1 - Open the Windows Powershell

Step 2 - Run the command "New-PsSession"

If an error is returned (rather than notification that a new powershell session has been invoked) then this error is confirmed and the next several steps are likely resolution of the issue.

Step 3 - Run the command "Enable-PsRemoting"

Confirm that this is successful and follow any prompts that appear.

Step 4 - Re-Try the command "New-PsSession"

Confirm that a new powershell session is returned as being successfully created

Step 5 - Complete the manual uninstall to resolve the error 1722 if present (http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH200443)

Step 6 - Run the installer again.


Applies To
