I have been trying to install a Splunk Universal Forwarder using "splunkforwarder-6.1.11-277527-x86-release.msi" on Windows XP. Install fails at the end of Install process and rolls back installation. Our clients have both Win XP and Win 7 machines, so I would not like to maintain 2 different Forwarder versions.
Can Splunk fix the issue in their MSI package so it can be installed on Windows XP (Embedded)
FYI: The only version I found works on Windows XP is splunkforwarder-5.0.5-179365-x86-release.msi. I tried to upgrade to latest after this install but it fails.
I would appreciate any help.
Thank you for quick response. I wish I can make XP boxes disappear from our client base :).
For now I have to maintain both versions of Forwarders!!!
