Hi Sagar,

I agree with the 'Rising Star' MFRANZ : Looking at the PowerShell error message, you have some existing files in the C:\Temp folder that cannot be overwritten.

I would suggest to:

  1. Make sure that the '\FlexNet Manager Suite\Support' folder - that is the source folder that you run the "config.ps1" PowerShell script from - as well as the 'Installers' folder that needs to exist in parallel to the '\Support' folder are NOT stored inside of the 'C:\Temp' folder. Move the 'FlexNet Manager Suite' that you downloaded from the Flexera 'Product and License Center' to a different location
  2. In case it still exists, delete the 'C:\Temp\FlexNet Manager Suite' folder with anything contained in it.
  3. Make sure that the user running the installation has full access to the local 'C:\Temp' folder

Then re-run the 'config.ps1' PowerShell configuration script.

Hi Sagar,

Have you tried removing the temporary folder, the script is trying to unpack into?
