Hi Guys,

I am redeploying my corporate antivurus... Symantec Endpoint v11.
After installing the console I am not able to comunicate with the database. I got the following error

Creating database failed. ErrorCode = -9999 Message: Cannot run program "C:\Program": CreateProcess error=193, %1 is not a valid Win32 application
