Return Code = 1 During Post Installation Task

05/25/2016 1490 views
When I try installing Symantec via a Post Installation Task, it fails with a Return Code = 1.  If I try to upload the executable again, I get Package File is Invalid.  I can't find either error documented anywhere.  Does anyone know how to fix it?  Thanks!

  • Sorry, newbie error. I assumed "Post Installation Task' would be enough to lead to a K2000 issue. I think I may have found the answer to my problem, but I'm still interested in why I'm getting an undocumented error. Thanks.

SEP 12.1.6 has the same when running from an exe in windows 10 if it installs or not success or fail it always exit codes 1 we had to query the msi running and get its exit code to then output that into our install to return a true return code to pass to our deployment tool.

Shall we just guess which of the 1,000+ Symantec products you're talking about?
