The following error appears during a LEM Desktop Console upgrade:

Sorry, an error has occurred.

This application cannot be installed because this installer has been mis-configured. Please contact the application author for assistance.




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  • Adobe AIR is being upgraded from an older version that has a signature from an outdated certificate.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.


All LEM Desktop Console versions

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

  3. Reinstall the SolarWinds Log and Event Manager Console and Adobe AIR.
