Agent Install on Windows fails

Hi there,

I'm looking into using OCS for my organisation. As a first step, I tried to install the windows agent on my machine with a local repository, but not matter where I install it, the folder structure is empty afterwards.

Is this a know issue? Did I do anything wrong?

An yes, I started the installer as an administrator :)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards

@webgreg: That didn't really help. My installation folder is simply empty.

Hi Christian,

i am using a little script to install the agent on our POS-Systems which are not in AD.

Maybe it is usefull for you:

echo off

set SERVER=\\YOURSERVER\OCS           # <- all used files are here!

set CERTPATH=C:\ProgramData\OCS Inventory NG\Agent  # <- created at setup

set CERTNAME=cacert.pem

set AGENT=OCS-NG-Windows-Agent-Setup.exe

set OCSSERVERPATH=https://ocsinventory-ng.YOURWEBSERVER.local/ocsinventory

set OCSUSER=ocsusername

set OCSUSERPWD=ocsuserpassword

set OCSSSL=1


mkdir "%CERTPATH%"





Good luck ;-)

I'm using the windows agent 2.6 64bit. I also tried the 2.4 32bit.

In both cases the folder where the .exe is supposed to be is empty. I only see an empty plugins folder there.
