I have a windows server 2008 R2 SP1 running Symantec Endpoint Protection Server v11.0.6100.645.

I have a windows 7 64 bit OS that I would like to install the client onto.  For some reason it will not install.  I have tried doing it from the server as well as locally.  When I do locally I do not get any errors, basically the install goes for about 3 minutes and then just disappears.  On the server if I use the deployment manager it hangs at 4% completed.  If I use the symantec endpoint manager and do a search for unmanaged machines the PC will come up and when I try and do install at that point it just comes back failed with no other messages.
The UAC is off.

Just wondering if anyone else has seen this and if there was a workaround etc?
