Installing Windows Agents

When installing the agent for the first time or upgrading from a previous version, review the information presented in Reboot Requirements - Windows Agents to understand what conditions in the runtime environment will result in a required reboot of the computer in order for the install/upgrade to be completed properly and the agent to function properly. Failing to understand the reboot requirements in relation to your environment may result in the application control service or other components of the agent failing to function properly.
