Created: 22 Oct 2011 • Updated: 08 Nov 2011 | 6 comments


My mashine is Fujitsu Siemens server with small business server 2003 on it. When i try to install SEP SBE manager i first receive message that my i have processor speed less then 1000MHz, and when i continue installation next message is that destination drive has less then 4GB free space and it stops the instalation. My CPU is Xeon 2.80GHz and free space on first drive is 30GB and on second is 120GB. I tried to install on both drives with no result. Can you give me some advice pls. Thanks in advance.

7035 The Windows Installer service was successfully sent a start control.


7036 The Windows Installer service entered the running state.

That's all. And i didn't find any other errors that could tell me something about the problem.

Hi, Run the SEP support tool, and select the Pre-Install Check. Please report back all errors generated.

I am moving this thread to the Endpoint Protection forum for greater visibility.
