Issue with Installing Universal Forwarder 9.2.1 on Windows

Hi everyone. I'm currently trying to install the Universal Forwarder on a Windows client. I haven't installed any previous versions of the Universal Forwarder on this client before. After reaching the final stages of the installation, unfortunately, it rolls back and displays a message indicating that the installation wizard did not complete. I'm also attaching the AppCrash report for your reference. Could you please provide some guidance on this?

Edit 1: I would like to add that the client is part of a domain, and it is not beneficial whether I perform the installation with the domain admin user or the local admin user, as I still encounter errors.

I am having the same issue installing this version. Clean or reinstall gives the same problem. To this point I have tried multiple fixes. The odd thing here is it successful installed on 4 servers and only one will the service restart.

Hi @CheongKing168 ,

try to reinstall the old version, to understand if the issue is related to the UF version or to environment.

Then open a case to Splunk Support.

One additional info: which Windows version are you using?

Ciao.

Hi!

 

I did uninstall the old version.. Clean up the folders and registry. Disable McAfee Antivirus too.

Did the installation again.. and still hit the same issue..

Tried to install back the old version.. It now encounter the same issue as the new version installation..

My OS is Windows Server 2016 Standard.

Hi @CheongKing168 ,

installing the old version you know that the issue is on the environment and not on the new version.

Windows 2016 is a certified  OS, so this shouldn't be the issue.

Disabling McAfee, this isn't the issue.

I suppose that you already checked the available disk space and the grants of the user used for the installation.

as I said, the only hint is to open a case to Splunk Support: they can analyze the installation logs to understand where's the issue.

Ciao.

Hi @AlirezaGhanavat,

at first, which user are you using to install the UF? has it the grants to install an app?

have you an antivirus?

Anyway, in these cases I always open a case to Splunk Support.

Ciao.

I have followed all the necessary guidelines. The operating system is Windows Server 2022, and I have installed it on a machine that didn't previously have UF installed. I have completely disabled the antivirus. I have performed the installation twice, once with the domain admin and once with the local admin. Each time, I encountered the same issue. The latest installable version on these machines is 9.0.1, and subsequent versions (up to 9.2.1) encounter the same error.
