Client Automation - Any Versions


Problem could be caused by a conflict with Antivirus.

Realtime Antivirus Agent blocks file creation/deletion actions made by egc30n.exe under C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\CA\RemoteControl

Check the settings of Antivirus Agent or check if it is possible to exclude the directory C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\CA\RemoteControl from the realtime scan

Additional Information

Example :
There is a conflict with process fcag.exe (C:\Program Files\McAfee\DLP\Agent\fcag.exe - McAfee DLP Endpoint Agent 11.6.500.17)
egc30n.exe has created the file C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\CA\RemoteControl\winnt-xxxxxx.xml with a size of 1555 bytes
Then it creates the file C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\CA\RemoteControl\winnt-xxxxxx.xml.tmp with a size of 1772 bytes
Next it tries to delete the file C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\CA\RemoteControl\winnt-xxxxxx.xml and rename the file C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\CA\RemoteControl\winnt-xxxxxx.xml.tmp as C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\CA\RemoteControl\winnt-xxxxxx.xml
But it seems that fcag.exe blocks the deletion of file winnt-xxxxxx.xml
And rename action is failing
Due to this egc30n.exe creates an empty file winnt-xxxxxx.xml with a size of 172 bytes
