  • Hi  

    Is this the only machine facing this issue? Have you tried to re-install if it is only on a single machine?

  • Dear Shweta

    so far i'm facing this issue on this machine only, i have done on many other machines but i didn't face this issue

     

    Thanks

  • This is the error:

    WixQuietExec64: "C:\windows\system32\\netcfg.exe" /l "C:\Program Files\Sophos\Sophos Network Threat Protection\SophosNTPLWF\SophosNTPLWF.inf" /c s /i SOPHOS_SOPHOSNTPLWF
    WixQuietExec64: Trying to install SOPHOS_SOPHOSNTPLWF ...
    WixQuietExec64: ..failed. Error code: 0x80070020.
    WixQuietExec64: Error 0x80070020: Command line returned an error.
    WixQuietExec64: Error 0x80070020: QuietExec64 Failed
    WixQuietExec64: Error 0x80070020: Failed in ExecCommon method
    CustomAction InstallSophosNTPLWF returned actual error code 1603 (note this may not be 100% accurate if translation happened inside sandbox)

    So failing to install the SophosNTPLWF.sys driver using netcfg.exe.

    I would run Process Monitor when AutoUpdate tries to install the component again. 

    Find the error in the install log to correlate the time with the Process Monitor log.

    Look for the netcfg process being launched and see if there is anything of obvious. I don't think that the error mentioned is ERROR_SHARING_VIOLATION in this context but maybe  I don't have a Windows 7 computer to hand to check the Windows logs.

    https://community.sophos.com/kb/en-us/134832 is an article detailing other failures at this step.
