    Hello Piciak,


    In Client Security 12 release notes we have a known issue:


    Remote installation to Windows 8

    To remotely install the product to a Windows 8 host from Policy Manager Console, set the following registry key on the host to enable access to the 'admin$' share:



    Please, check, if this registry tuning will help you to get the product installed successfully.


    Best regards,

    Everybody, please forget about "push installation" as it is a legacy method left over from the "Windows 2000" era. Essentially, it requires the sysadmin to castrate the built-in security feazures of modern Windows operating systems, in order to remote install the anti-virus suite. That is a very silly contradiction and I consider it unacceptably risky.


    The modern alternative is to import the endpoint protection .JAR package into F-Secure Policy Manager Console 12 and then use the available option to re-export it as a pre-configured .MSI file.


    The .MSI package is an executable file, which you can distribute onto the endpoint computers within an Active Directory Group Policy (GPO) command. It works beautifully.
