Error installing Insights WBEM providers 10.10

Hi all


We are installing WBEM providers on all our servers in order to monitor them from Microsoft System Center Operations Manager and we have one BL460 where we are having problems installing them. This is the error log (from a reinstall, as it does not appear in installed programs to uninstall it):

I've tried the solutions proposed in this other post, and even tried installing 9.4 with no luck.




Thanks a lot in advance

Hi all, here is the solution just in case someone else arrives here with the same problem.


Apparently there was an error (or something was missing) regarding WMI on the server. Installed WMF 4.0 (which fortunately supports Sharepoint 2010, which is installed on that server) and after the reboot the install completed successfully.
