Cause



 Missing "InstallPath" registry value in the location HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\KVS\Enterprise Vault\Install (32bit server) or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\KVS\Enterprise Vault\Install (64bit server)


Solution



To resolve this problem, perform one of the steps below to recreate the missing registry value.

1.  Manually create a new InstallPath registry value in HKLM\SOFTWARE\KVS\EnterpriseVault\Install and set its data value to that of the location in which Enterprise Vault is installed.  This registry value is a REG_SZ String value.

Or

2.  Reinstall the EV binaries
