Hello, I have tried to install robot 7.93 on a Windows 2016 server (this is the version that was recommended to me). I get a number of errors during the installation relating to permissions and icacls.exe and the installer finishing saying that it cannot find nms-robot-vars.cfg and that the robot.cfg will not be created and not started.
I have tried both the installers for 7.93 and they do the same. Any ideas please on how I can resolve this? I have raised a ticket in case management but that has an initial response target date of tomorrow and I need to get this resolved as soon as possible.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
from compatibility list that robot 7.95 is needed for 2016 support
Have you confirmed the prerequisite permissions for Windows
Bulk Robot Deployment with an XML File - CA Unified Infrastructure Management - 8.5 - CA Technologies Documentation
or try installation with 7.80 version if it works and if ok upgrade to 7.93 via robot_update
Thanks Britta, I just managed to install 7.93, I did not realise I needed to do an answers file for a fresh install
Thanks Franklin, I ended up using the bulk robot deployment method and created an answers file and that seemed to work, I appreciate the feedback
