Windows OS agent install fails

Technote (troubleshooting)


Windows OS agent install gives the following error message in the Abort log.

C:\Users\<Admin-name>\Desktop\WINDOWS\InstallITM\ITMISUtil.dll ERROR:(-1)
SEVERE: ERROR - Install aborted.


The -1 and it may be that some Microsoft DLLS are either missing or corrupt on the system.


Windows 2008 R1 SP2 64 Bit

Diagnosing the problem

Download Depends.exe ( from Microsoft. It will check dependencies and indicate why the dll will not load. Then find those DLLS on a working system (or contact Microsoft) and copy them to the same location on the failing system.

The DLLS that 6.2.3 FP1 requires are as follows:
MFC42U.dll - ver 6.6.8064.0
MFC90U.dll - ver 9.0.30729.4148
MSVCR90.dll - ver 9.0.21022.8
MSVCRT.dll - Ver 7.0.3790.3959

Resolving the problem

Using Depends.exe found the missing/corrupted dll (MSVCR90.dll - ver 9.0.21022.8).

Corrupted MSVCR90_DLL.jpgCorrupted MSVCR90_DLL.jpg

Installed both 32-bit and 64-bit (since this was a 64-bit machine) for this dll and this resolved the issue. On 64-bit machines both 32-bit and 64-bit DLLS from Microsoft must be installed to cover all the scenarios used by ITM.
