Error when installing NCM on an Additional Polling Engine

Updated July 31, 2018


When you install NPM on an Additional Polling Engine (APE), the installer returns the following error:

The specified product/component [SWA:] version in this installer is older 
than what is currently installed on this system. Download the latest available 
offline installer or use the online installer.


  • NCM 7.7
  • NPM 12.2


The SolarWinds Administrator Service version is conflicting with the Orion Main Poller. 


  1. Log in to the server hosting the Additional Polling Engine. 
  2. Uninstall the SolarWinds Administrator Service.
  3. Run the SolarWinds Orion Installer on the Additional Polling Engine.
    The error should be resolved.
