Error installing Appdynamics lite version

Highlighted
Creator

Hello,

 

I’m facing some problem during the installation of AppDynamics Lite on one of my webserver (Windows Server 2016 – IIS 10) for .net use. This server is in french language

 

As the introduction says :

- I meet all the prerequisites

- I use a 64-bit system

- I can call the controller from my server

 

But when I want to install the app agent on my server, this last exit with a 1603 error : MSI (c) (88:C8) [15:25:07:295]: MainEngineThread is returning 1603.

 

Do you an idea of why this might be happening?

 

Thank you in advance.

Best Regards,

Hi,

 

After looking into logs, I've found the winston.txt logs: the source of the code 1603.

In this file, I have found the exact exception : 

 

Impossible de traduire certaines ou toutes les références d'identité (fr)

Some or all identity references could not be translated (en).

 

caused by the stack :

After googling this error, I have found a similar problem in another project: https://github.com/nvisionative/nvQuickSite/issues/163

(resolved here) https://github.com/nvisionative/nvQuickSite/pull/167

(source code changed) https://github.com/nvisionative/nvQuickSite/pull/167/files

 

My server is in french, and when you call System.Security.Principal.NTAccount on a french server, you have "Utilisateur authentifié" and not "Authenticated Users". A translation of this terms seems to correct it.

 

Can you confirm ?

 

Thanks in advance.
