I found other articles about installing SEP but they didn't apply to my situation. I was able to package and install previous versions and they would install without issue (12.1.5, 12.1.6)
The SEP client is in EXE format and is configured to install silently without reboot. When I copy the EXE and run it to the server it installs as it should.
Currently when I deploy the application I get one of two results.
Perhaps my logic is not sound, here are the rules for the package. This is intended to upgrade all servers that do not have the latest version installed. So all servers should have the reg key for an older version.
I read that the applicability and installed rules are usually the same but I thought I'd use the MSI installed code. I will change this if needed.
I'm sure I'm just missing something obvious. Thanks for any advice or suggestions.
Try changing it from the registry path to the file path with version for the applicability. Everything looks ok but ive had problems before having to use one or the other for different applications
