Failed to install product. The directory is not empty when upgrading Inventory Solution
Last Updated December 05, 2018
When attempting to upgrade Inventory Solution, the following error is thrown and the upgrade fails:
Symantec.Installation.UpgradeConfigTaskException: Product failed to install.
Failed to install product.
The directory is not empty.
Unknown at this time.
The issue has been reported twice, and the resolution was different in each case.
For the first time it occurred we uninstalled the security software (antivirus) and the upgrade was able to complete without issue.
For the second time it occurred by running the tool ProcMon (Process Monitor from www.sysinternals.com) while the upgrade was occurring. This allowed the upgrade to complete without issue.
The cause is still unknown, and the resolutions do not provide enough info to make a conclusion on how to fix it. If neither of the above resolutions work, please contact Symantec Support and open a case on the issue, thanks!
