Recently, I ran into a DPM installation issue. When I looked at the Event log, I had an event ID 1042. This is normally related to MSI installer issue. This is what I did to complete the DPM installation:
- Opened the Temp folder. (c:\Users\Administrators\AppData\Local\2\DPMTemp)·
- Deleted the Dpmxxx.tmp file·
- Reran the DPM install.
