Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management


ERROR:"Could not locate MSI file" in migration log
ERROR:"Piracy Detected!" in AxtAotConv.log
Migration fails


A previous version of Admin Studio is already installed on the machine.
This causes a licensing conflict with the ZENWorks Application Migration Utility. Un-install all versions of Admin Studio and re-install the ZENworks Migration Utility.
