I am attempting to install Symantec Client Security software.  The OS is Server 2003.  Everything I try to install from the CD returns an installation error.  It appears that this software is designed to work on servers and I have no problem installing on client or non-client machines running XP.  What am I missing?

An error description should bring you some answers.

It returns the same generic error each and every time.  Error:  An error occurred while attempting to install Symantec Security Client.  That all, no codes, nada.

Cleared all sections of the event viewer and tried to install again.  In the security section, a success audit appears several times each time I try an installation.

Sounds like you have a bad copy of the software.  I have installed this on many 2003 servers you should be able to logon and download the software.
