The reason why this error may be appearing is because the ccmsetup.exe is missing from "c:\it_software\techtoolkit\SCCM\SCCMclient" folder. If it is then please copy 'ccmsetup.exe' to this location. ccmsetup.exe should be located in the setup installation folder.

Let me know how you get on.

I just had the same error as I am installing the same on quite a few PCs in my office and am having to do the same thing. This location is on the client.

OK. Try the following:

1) ensure windows updates is completely up to date.
2) Restart laptop
3) Log on as domain admin or local admin
4) Ensure your c drive is not hidden and you have access
5) Check in program and features if their is any relation to SCCM installed. If it is then uninstall
5) Run as administrator.

Let me know once you have tried.

Does it work on other laptops or is this the first laptop you have tried. Are you able to browse to your SCCM server and particularly to "\\YourSCCMServerName\C$\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Configuration Manager\Client\" and see if ccmsetup.exe is there.

ccmsetup.exe /mp:SCCMSERVER /logon SMSSITECODE=AUTO
