After upgrading to ZCM 11.2.4, fdeVersion.dll still shows as version

This document (7013436) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


Novell ZENworks Full Disk Encryption 11.2.4
Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2.4


Although the upgrade to ZCM 11.2.4 goes through successfully, %ZENWORKS_HOME%\FDE\fdeVersion.dll still shows as version, and %ZENWORKS_HOME%\logs\system-update\5011020400fc50000000002013100419\novell-zenworks-fde-api- contains MSI error 1638

Devices which have a fresh install of the ZCM 11.2.4 agent have %ZENWORKS_HOME%\FDE\fdeVersion.dll version


This can safely be ignored, but may be useful to distinguish between devices that have been upgraded, and those which have had a fresh install of ZCM 11.2.4


Because the code for FDE has not changed from ZCM 11.2.3a to ZCM 11.2.4, the "upgrade" has no work to do.
