Have a new Dell laptop with Windows 7 Pro 32 on a Domain.  When I try to install SEP 11.05 from a setup.exe file created from SEP Manager the install will start and run for about 90 seconds and then roll back.  Tried with 11.04 and 11.05.  I do not have a Symantec install disk.  Server is Server 2003.  4 other clients installed(all XP Pro). I also tried from the local admin account.

TIA Tim

Did the laptop have anti-virus installed previously (McAfee or similar) that you have uninstalled?

Review the Windows Application log for Symantec Endpoint Protection or MSInstaller as the sources during the time you attempted the installs. There should be some indication as to what caused the install to roll back. If you don't find anything there, go to your %temp% directory and open SEP_Inst.log. Search for "value 3". If it's present, attach the log here so it can be reviewed.

By checking the SEP-INST.LOG it seems that the LiveUpdate is unable to register. Below are the logs for reference

Below is the link which is at Symantec which provides some workaround to the problem. Though it is not yet determined why it happened but version 11.06 and upwards works well.

I hope that would help

Are you admin of the SEP server or do you have a SEP server? If so, have you tried pushing from server while the laptop is on the domain?

SEP is installed on the server, did a push installation, stated installed completely.  Went to the laptop and nothing was installed.

For informational purposes, the "install complete" message you see when installing clients that way doesn't represent the client actually installing. It only means that the copy of the client package to the target system was successful. RU6+ provides more clear messaging in that regard.

SSharma's post is most likely the correct fix for your problem. There's only one issue though: is the SEP Manager (SEPM) using version RU5 as well? If so, it is not recommended to have clients with a newer version reporting to a SEPM with a lesser version.

If you're not prepared to upgrade the SEPM then you can alternatively download and install LiveUpdate 3.3 before running the SEP install and that will accomplish the same thing. The SEP installer will see the newer version of LU already installed and won't downgrade it to 3.2.
