Applies to:

Centrify Agent for Windows (DirectAuthorize) Suite 2017 (3.4.0) on Windows 10 with Creators Update (Version 1703)


When Installing Centrify Agent for Windows, getting the following error:

image showing the error

“1: Failed to change registry. Registryvalue ‘HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\OSConfig\Security Packages’ not found”


The recent Windows 10 "Creators Update - Version 1703" modified the system registry section and this prevents Centrify Agent from installing


This will be fixed in the Centrify Suite 2017.1 (3.4.1) Centrify Agent for Windows
