Trying to follow the instructions to re-tirgger the creation of the HTTP/HTTPs packages, but when trying to save the configuration profile, I get a message below.

Anti Virus was preventing access to needed files.


Disabled Anti Virus and the Communication Profile was able to be saved.

Suggested adding this location to the Excludes in Anti Virus: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Altiris .  There's a 7z.dll in that folder that we use to recreate the HTTP/S installers. 

Additional Information

AeXNSCHTTP.exe and HTTPS.exe installers are located in the NSCap folder (C:\Program Files\Altiris\Notification Server\NSCap\bin\Win32\X86) and are recreated under certain circumstances.  The easiest way to recreate them is to uncheck a box the SMP Communication Profile, put the check mark back, and then save it.
