Running Browsing History Analysis on Windows with just a Universal Forwarder

Can you give details of how to get this to work on Windows that is only running a universal forwarder? I have installed a local copy of python, but the log gives the following errors:

 05-02-2014 16:17:43.474 +0100 ERROR ExecProcessor - message from "python "C:\Program Files\SplunkUniversalForwarder\etc\apps\browsers\bin\monitor.py""   File "C:\Program Files\SplunkUniversalForwarder\etc\apps\browsers\bin\monitor.py", line 60

Any thoughts on this please?

Thanks

the problem is that the monitor.py use 2 splunk python libraries:

import splunk.bundle as bundle
import splunk.util as util

And the universal forwarder doesnot have python or those librarie which you can find in a full splunk installation:

util.py

splunk_home\lib\python2.7\ctypes\

bundle.py

splunk_home\lib\python2.7\site-packages\splunk\clilib\

I am having this exact issue with the latest version. Were you ever able to find a fix for this using a Windows Universal Forwarder?

Thanks!

you could try by putting those util.py... and bundle.py... in splunk_home\etc\apps\browsers\bin\

Are you saying it can't be done then.

Am I right to assume that those libraries require the full splunk installation for this app to work?
