If your computer is running Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2), you might see one or more of the following error messages:

  • Installation Wizard is missing a filter manager rollup package needed to complete the installation.

  • KB914882 Setup Error, Setup cannot update your Windows XP files because the language installed on your system is different from the update language.

Cause

Endpoint Protection cannot be installed on a computer that is running other security programs. Sometimes, even if you remove other security programs, they do not completely uninstall. You must be running a genuine version of the Windows operating system to install Endpoint Protection.

If your computer is running Windows XP SP2, you might be missing one or more of the following prerequisites for installing Endpoint Protection:

  • Windows Installer 3.1

  • Forefront Client Security Filter Manager QFE for Windows XP/SP2
