Resolution

Problem
 

Software Management Solution Agent installation fails, if a specific Group Policy is enabled:

Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Windows Installer/Prohibit User Installs is set it to “Hide User Installs”.

With this policy enabled, the Software Management Agent Plug-in fails to install with the following error when an user is logged in:
Product: Software Management Solution Agent -- Error 1934. User installations are disabled via policy on the machine.

Environment
Software Management Solution 7.0

Cause
Software Management Agent includes Software Portal installation routine which needs user space access and thus fails in this situation.

Resolution
 

Add a public property setting to the SMS Agent command line - ALLUSERS=2 (ALLUSERS=1 should work as well).

This is set to be fixed in Software Management Solution 7.1
