Agent for XP SP2 Installation failure and question regarding Storage Node
I have to questions regarding Acronis 12.5:
1. What are the prerequisites to install the AcronisBackup_12.5_Agent_for_WindowsXP_SP2_32-bit?
Before trying to install the agent on one of our productive machine PCs, I have installed Windows XP SP2 on a test machine and tried to install the agent on it, but the installer doesn´t open/run. The local User has administrator privileges. When you try to open it, it simply does nothing. For a few seconds the hourglass cursor appears, but nothing happens. I can´t even find an entry in the Eventlog. It generates no error message at all. I´ve installed vcredist 2005 SP1,vcredist 2008 SP1, vcredist 2010, Windows Installer 3.1 (WindowsInstaller-KB893803-v2-x86), .NET Framwork 2 and 3 but nothing has changed.
2. On our Management server I haven´t installed the Storage Node component, as I thought it is unnecessary for our needs and we use one network share for all images created. In that share, we create a subfolder for each machine we are backing up. However, that has the disadvantage, that the list of the storage locations gets rather cluttered, as every subfolder has to be added as a location. E.g. \\server\share\machineA, \\server\share\machineB, \\server\share\machineC, and so on.
Is this different when using the Storage Node component? Great would be, if it would only list all added network shares and not each subfolder containing the individual images.
Thanks in advance and greetings
