When running the installation utility to upgrade Power Monitoring Expert 8.0 or 8.1 to 8.2, the installation will stop on the copying files section with a warning:
"The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable."
When the user manually selects the file via browse the next error is that the file is not a valid installation package for the product.
Power Monitoring Expert 8.x
This problem is a result of RegBrick_x86.msi being detected as a Trojan by some anti-virus software, McAfee for sure, and possibly other anti-virus packages.
When PME is upgraded, the installer tries to uninstall the old msi packages prior to installing the new ones. Since RegBrick_x86.msi cannot be found where expected, you are prompted to find it manually.
Cancel the PME installation.
