After you install the Symantec Host IDS 4.1 Agent on a computer that runs Windows NT 4.0, you see the following error message in the Windows NT 4.0 Event log:
Event ID: 7000
The Symantec Host IDS Agent service failed to start due to the following error:
%1 is not a valid Windows NT application.
When you start the Symantec Host IDS Agent service in the Windows NT Services Control Panel, you see the following error message:
Could not start the Symantec Host IDS Agent service on \\
Error 0193: %1 is not a valid Windows NT application.
This problem sometimes happens when the path to the service includes a folder name that has a space, such as in the "Program Files" folder name.
To solve the problem, edit the registry to add quote marks to the value that is for the following registry key.
For instance, if the value of the key is:
"C:\Program Files\Symantec\Host IDS\bin\iidsagent.exe" -service
then add another set of quotes to the path. When done, the Data field displays two sets of quotes:
""C:\Program Files\Symantec\Host IDS\bin\iidsagent.exe" -service"
For more information on this problem, read the 134425 - Event ID 7000: %1 Not A Valid Windows NT Application document in the Microsoft Knowledge Base.
