    We use NOD32 on a network. It has been installed on all client machines issuing a command on the command line - never any problems, till now.

    The command is the \\servername\path\NOD32\NT\setup.exe /etc etc command. The results with a new computer running Windows XP professional is: A specified authentication package is unknown. I looked at the NOD32/NT directory on the server and all the files supposed to be there are there, and then some. A file with the name Charon.nup has been created. Charon is the name of the new computer. The xml files also don't have anything useful in them that may help.

    The programmer should have used the reference of the package he was looking for and included some details of this "unknown authentication package" with the error message.

    Any idea what is going on and how to fix it?

    Thanks,

    Chris

    Fiddling resolved the problem.

    Sometimes it works,
    Sometimes it does not.
    Windows is like that.

    Ha! That is pure coincidence! Charon.nup really is one of the standard NOD32 setup files. It seems that the Ferryman of the Dead is quite popular around here. :eek:
