The Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit service (Microsoft EMET Service) can block some SolarWinds Orion applications from running, such as SyslogViewer and TrapViewer.



  • NPM 10.7 and later


  1. Log in to the SolarWinds Orion server as an administrator.

  2. Open the Microsoft Windows Services console. 

  3. Stop the Microsoft EMET Service.

All SolarWinds Orion services start correctly.

If you were directed to this article from the installer, you should not receive a EMET warning when you run the installer.
