Known issuesIf you install Forefront Security for SharePoint 10.2.942.0 as an upgrade on a server on which the Database path and the Install path are different, you will receive the following errors:
Licensing: Could not fine ELI at ELI path (%Databasepath%\Engines\). Using install path (%InstallPath%)
If you have a server that has different values for the DatabasePath setting and the InstallPath setting, before you run the installation, you must manually extract the EngineInfo.cab file from the installation package, and then copy it to your server in the "%DatabasePath%\Engines" folder. Because the Engineinfo.cab file is embedded in the installation executable file, you should copy Setup.exe to a temporary location on disk, and then follow these steps to extract its contents:
Error: SybLicense: Could not load the cab file: (%InstallPath%)\EngineInfo.cab
