The following error message is displayed when installing the local agent on Windows Server 2016:


Installer UI Mode Error

Installer User Interface Mode Not Supported

The installer cannot run in this UI mode. To specify the interface mode, use the -i command-line option, followed by the UI mode identifier. The valid UI modes identifiers are GUI, Console, and Silent.  



  • LEM 6.3.1 or earlier
  • Windows Local Agent Installer 6.3.1 or earlier
  • Windows Server 2016


The current installer package for the local agent is not compatible with Windows Server 2016.


A new installer package will be used in an upcoming LEM release. As a workaround for current and previous versions, you can push the agent to Windows Server 2016 hosts by using the Windows Remote Agent Installer from a different Windows host that is not running Windows Server 2016. For details on how to use the Remote Agent Installer, see Using the SolarWinds LEM Remote Agent Installer.
