I installed Deployment Solution and as I wanted to have Deployment Server on the same box, I decided to deploy it via Deployment Solution.

The DS package was downloaded and installed, but instead of it being displayed as completed successfully, it completed with an exit code of 191.

Description: Program 'Full Installation/Upgrade of Deployment Server' completed. Exit code=191

I then checked the file system, services and db, and they all seemed to have been created.  When clicking on ds icon, it displays a pop-up stating that its not licensed.  Pressing OK brings up the 'About Deployment Console' window showing no licenses applied.  A license was part of the DS Package.  When applying the DSPackage license via the License Utility, it throws an error say that incompatible licenses were found while comparing the Activation Key file.

Corrupt license files.


Installed valid license files via the License Utility and was then able to access the DS Console.
