The Sophos Community will be unavailable from 13:00 to 18:00 UTC this Saturday, October 1st for upgrades. Stay tuned to our Twitter account @SophosSupport for updates.
When attempting to select 'Change' from the Programs and Features (or Add/Remove Programs) list for the Sophos SafeGuard Client component you see the following messages:
Installer Information Some pending file operations were detected. Please restart this computer in any case before you start the installation again! Fatal Error Installation ended prematurely because of an error. Fatal error during installation
Note: In this scenario the message does not relate to outstanding pending file operations (PendingFileRenameOperations registry key) and therefore a system restart it not required.
First seen in Sophos Disk Encryption 5.61.0
It is not possible/should not be possible to change/modify the Sophos SafeGuard Client component.
It is by design that the Sophos SafeGuard Client component cannot be changed using 'Add/Remove Programs' or 'Programs and Features'.
