System Agent 11.4 on Windows
The format of the win_installer.properties file is not the same between releases 11.3 and 11.4

You get this above error message when running setup.exe from the System Agent 11.3 DVD with a win_installer.properties file from the 11.4 DVD
Use the win_installer.properties file from the 11.4 DVD with the setup.exe file from the same DVD
