Script for Package: <Package Name>, Program: <Program Name> failed with exit code 1618

    Question

  • Hi

    Ive deployed McAfee Agent and Viruscan to few servers in XXX Collection.. There are 58 servers included in the collection..

    After 1 day being advertised, when i see the the report "status of  dvertisement" only for 2 servers it shows Retrying status and rest of the server shows Succeded.

    When i go and check on 1 of the server logs,

    On Execmgr.log it ends with error, Script for Package: <Package Name>, Program: <Program Name> failed with exit code 1618

    Please suggest me to resolve it ASAP..

  • The point about the error code that Jorgen is making though is that it's not a ConfigMgr error code, its a Windows error code. This means that Windows is seeing another installation (started from ConfigMgr or otherwise). Thus, you need to figure out what other installation is running on that system keeping in mind it may or may not have been initiated by ConfigMgr.

  • Hi,

    Assuming it is an MSI installation, 1618 translates to "Another installation is already in progress. Complete that installation before proceeding with this install."

    So make sure no other installation is running and try to rerun the program again.

  • Hi

    Thanks for your quick reply..

    I've checked it and there was no installation going on so far.. As i states earlier it was two advertisements (McAfee Agent and McAfee Virus scan) which i deployed..

    Could you please tell me that how can i force an advertisemnt or re-run the same only to this machine? Is it possible?

    Since i cant re run the advertisment to the entire collection.

    Note: This is a mandatory advertisement that i have provided the setting as to re-run the advertisement if it fails. (Report shows that it is retrying in every 5 minutes but unable to install)

  • Hi,

    To rerun the advertisement for a specific computer can be done via script or SCCM Ricght click tools: http://myitforum.com/cs2/blogs/rhouchins/archive/2008/04/09/sccm-right-click-tools.aspx or http://sourceforge.net/projects/smsclictr/ 

    check the event log as well, and see what errors the Windows Installer is logging there.

    Regards,
    Jörgen
