    Hello everyone,


    I wanted to install the client on my workstation but am having problems.

    The installation process prompts that an update if required. During the client update process, it stops at 83% with the following error. Can anyone tell me what is causing this?


    Failed to update file app\launcher_V2. Reason: SSL peer shut down incorrectly.

    Is it a clean install or are you try to update the client  ?

    After installing the client I run it for the first time and it asks me to update it.

    Hello, When the client first connects to PAM it needs to download a number of jar files from the PAM server. It looks like your download is successful up to a point and then the connection is cut. Is it consistently failing at the same point? We've had users see this problem and they got past it with a couple of retries. There is a logs.log file in the PAM client installation folder that may contain additional information on the nature of the problem. If you can't get past it, please open a support case and we will take a closer look.

    The problem was the antivirus.
