Cause

An installer cannot be configured or misconfigured. This can occur because of the following reasons:

  • Adobe AIR is being upgraded from an older version that has a signature from an outdated certificate.
  • There are remaning items in your old console's installation folder or from the sim.console folder.

Environment

All LEM Desktop Console versions

Resolution

  1. Uninstall the SolarWinds Log and Event Manager Console and Adobe AIR from Control Panel > Programs and Features.

  2. Delete the entire sim.console folder from the user's profile:

    C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\
  3. Reinstall the SolarWinds Log and Event Manager Console and Adobe AIR.
