IssueUnable to install RSA Security Analytics SFTP agent 4.1 SP1 on Windows server 2003.
Attempting to install the RSA Security Analytics SFTP agent 4.1 SP1 results in the following error:  Unable to create the window service Security Analytics SFTP Agent.
CauseThe issue us caused by having a lower version of Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable, being version 8.0.50727.42.
Resolution

In order to resolve the issue, follow the steps below.


  1. Uninstall SA SFTPAgent software from Windows Control Panel, Add/Remove programs.
  2. Uninstall the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable.
  3. Download Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable.
  4. Install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable.
  5. Confirm that this is indeed version 8.0.61001 in the control panel (have to do this after installing from the 'Add or Remove Programs' window because the redist exe packages themselves have erroneous build numbers from MS)
  6. Once confirmed the version, re-install the SA SFTPAgent software.
