Access Denied Error during Discovery Sensor Installation on Windows

You might get an access denied error when installing a sensor on a Windows machine. This is not a sensor issue but rather a Windows permissions one.


  1. Run the sensor installation file as Administrator
  2. Check to see if your Anti-virus program is not interfering with the installation

For reference on what could cause this on Windows please see: Windows Installation Errors
