Unable to run Quest PowerGUI in Windows 2003 server

Symtom :

When you install PowerGUI 3.1 in windows 2003 server it will ask you to install the Windows Management Framework Core KB968930. When you download and install the MS update (KB968930) it will prompt you an error “Windows Management Framework Core KB968930 installation failed. Access is denied.”

Cause:   It requires a reset permission in the to run the MS patch.


Problem was resolved by reseting the security – choose your own switches or use the following to drop a log file to the root of C: by typing the following in a command prompt:

” %windir%\system32\secedit.exe /configure /cfg %windir%\repair\secsetup.inf /db secsetup.sdb /log C:\secedit.log /verbose”
