Environment

  • All NPM versions
  • All Orion Platform products 

Cause 

The error is caused by any of the following:

  • A wireless folder that is not populated with all the required DLL files during the initial installation or upgrade process
  • Antivirus or permission issues

Resolution

  1. Stop all Orion services. 
  2. Copy the contents from a working C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\Wireless\folder or from an additional polling engine, to your non-working C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\ polling engine.
    Note: Unblock the files if you are copying from another machine. Windows will block them by default for security purposes.
  3. Restart all Orion services.
  4. Browse to your Discovery profiles again to confirm that the issue has been resolved.
