When opening the Symantec Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange (SMSMSE) console, you encounter an error "Symantec.Cmaf.UI.exe - Application error: The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135). Click on OK to terminate the application" after deploying SMSMSE using the console remote install feature to an Exchange 2007/2010 server.

On the target server, Microsoft .NET Framework is not listed in the add/remove programs menu


SMSMSE 6.5.0 contains a defect that allows the remote install to complete without the prerequisite of .NET framework. With the release of 6.5.1, the remote install will fail if this requirement is not met.


Install .NET framework 2.0 on the target server. Install files for the .NET framework can be downloaded from the following Microsoft web site: link
