Issue/Introduction

While installing the Endpoint Agent on a Windows 7 machine you may get :- "Access is denied".

Resolution

This issue is due to Microsoft User Access Control and can be resolved by lowering down the UAC security level (This requires restart of the machine).

Note :- It is not recommended to keep the UAC level low and can be changed to the previous level once the installation is done.
