VMM Agent install fails ID:410


  • I am setting up my first server to run Hyper-V and can not get the VMM Agent to install.


    The server is running Windows 2008 Core on a Dell 2900.

    Windows is up, the server has been joined to the domain, and the Hyper-V role has been added.


    The error I get is Error (410) Agent installation faild on <hostname>

    Detailed Error (Fatal Error during installation (0x80070643))


    I have also tried a local agent install, which also fails.


    I can remotely connect to the host, and the Admin Event log has this error after the install fails:

    Activation context generation failed for "C:\Windows\Installer\MSIF177.tmp". Dependent Assembly Microsoft.VC80.CRT,processorArchitecture="amd64",publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b",type="win32",version="8.0.50608.0" could not be found. Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis.


    I can connect to the host using Hyper-V Manager, but I can not create a new VM or use the Virtual Network Manager function.
