Environment



SEP Version: 12.1.2.2015
Affected OS and Service Pack Windows 7 Pro Sp1
32 or 64 bit OS? 64-bit

Cause



ESET Endpoint Security is not supported.


Solution



We support uninstall of "ESET NOD32" (their AV product for home users), and it appears that "ESET Endpoint Security" (for Enterprise customers) is installed on the machine which is not listed in the supported.ini file, so it is not currently supported.
