Read the documentation : OCS Packager is NOT appropriate for upgrade agent !
cf https://wiki.ocsinventory-ng.org/03.Basic-documentation/Setting-up-the-Windows-Agent-2.x-on-client-computers/

Note: Please, don't use OCSPackager to upgrade OCS Inventory Windows Agent. Create deployement package with "OCS-NG-Windows-Agent-Setup.exe" on zip file and launch with command example : OCS-NG-Windows-Agent-Setup.exe /S /SERVER=ocs_server_address

(There is a lot of similar questions ... Please first search in the forum !)

IMHO the best is to use a small cmd script : file ocs-setup.exe + script 'install.cmd', and in the script a single line 'ocs-setup.exe /S /SERVER=... /SSL= /UPGRADE'

Thank you for the tips.

I searched for this error here in the forum and I didn't find it so I asked the question.
The problem was the protocol, I accidentally selected HTTP when I created the Deploy, changed it to HTTPS and the problem was solved.

Problem 1.2:
I tested with package + cmd and Download.exe doesn't update so the service doesn't start.

I had the idea and needed to bat with the following lines:

taskkil /F /im download.exe ***remove the in-use utility that downloads and runs the deploy

ocspackager.exe /S **custom package only requires /S and runs in silent mode

del programdata\ocs...\agent\download ***As the download.exe is closed, the folder is NOT cleaned and the OCS is in a loop and does not send the Exit result to the server successfully.

Extra step: remove Deploy from Host in OCS Web Panel.

Any better solution for the case where OCS doesn't update download.exe? **when using Server Deployment

**translate using google

First, (file created with) OCS Packager is NOT appropriate for upgrade agent.

Second, for file OCS...-Setup.exe there is lot of 'options' see https://wiki.ocsinventory-ng.org/03.Basic-documentation/Setting-up-the-Windows-Agent-2.x-on-client-computers/ section 'OCS Inventory Agent for Windows Setup command line options'

Third, upgrade of a running service is not obvious : this is the reason of option '/UPGRADE', and so, as I writed previously, this is the way recommended.

When you want upgrade a running service, you need to kill all child process (Download.exe), then install new program and dll, and restart the service ... and also finish the execution task of package started with previous version of the service !! Really not obvious

(I never use Packager, allways I install agent using OCS...-Setup.exe and small script : for installing without /UPGRADE, for upgrade with /UPGRADE. It's very simple and easy.)

I agree with you and thanks for the tips.

I will then continue with my bat even if it requires a few extra steps, until the Deployment works as expected.

thank you so much.
