  • That single line does not help at all because context is missing. You should see which file is trying to be installed before that error message (you can use cmtrace.exe to "translate" 1638).

  • Hi,

        Are there any error messages on the Monitoring node->Distribution Status->Distribution Point Configuration Status->your remote DP?

    Best regards,
