The actual error message may vary slightly.

This issue was discovered with UIM 8.51 and Infrastructure Manager 4.10 on a Windows 2008 R2 machine.However the information here is generally applicable to most versions of UIM and IM.

The resolution here is to uninstall and reinstall Infrastructure Manager:

1. uninstall the IM client using add/remove programs

2. clear the C:\Windows\temp directory

3. reinstall the IM client


The latest IM client can be downloaded from the Nimsoft Support site.
