failed creating formpost data
Reason for this is In Windows 2008, it will save copy of license file under spam pervention.If you have put license file in same directory, it will not be able to save file there. Move it under root of C or some other location and then try again.
The same command without the license file specified
C:\Program Files\Symantec\SMSMSE\6.0\Server>register.exe -c "C:\Program Files\Symantec\SMSMSE\6.0\Server\SpamPrevention\bmiconfig.xml" -p 256.256.256.256:8080 -a user:password -v
will prompt for the license file location.
Verify the location of the license file you are attempting to install, and type in that location at the prompt. The license file should now register successfully.
