Hi

I had the same issue.

Run cmd-prompt as administrator.

Navigate to the folder of the installation file

Enter msiexec /i epm.msi

Or just Enter the file name epm.msi

Then it will install


Best regards

Does anybody knows what is the cause of this issue?

I am trying to install it on a laptop with Domain admin rights and still get this error

Try logging in as local admin if installing manually, or if using software deployment, have it installed under local system.

Just found out from Check Point support that it is not possible to install it by double clicking on the package. Which is bad if you want to test it manually. The only way is to use msiexec or as Steve mentioned to use software deployment (GPO,SCCM)

Hi Shahar, that's incorrect - it is possible to install EPS.msi files manually, just by running the file as an admin. 

You can do this using Start -> run -> cmd, then do a run as Administrator.

From there, find the folder where the EPS.msi is located, and then type eps.msi and it will install fine.
