APC PowerChute Business Edition and VMware

Filed under: Software, Windows — Tags: , , , , — Michael @ 17:17

Today I tried to install APC PowerChute Business Edition on my workstation, but the setup started with an error message:

“VMware Server has been detected on this system. This version of PowerChute Business Edition does not support VMware Server.”

VMware Server is not installed on my system – just the Workstation version and the VI Client. I was too lazy to investigate for myself, so I got in touch with the APC Support. They suggested to deinstall all VMware products, install PowerChute and reinstall the VMware stuff… and so I did. The installation of PowerChute after doing it was successful, but after rebooting my computer another error message appeared:

“Error: 0, Failed to start APC PBE Agent service. VMware Server is installed, Please uninstall.”

So I had to update my support ticket and got the tip to install the previous version of PowerChute BE (8.00 or something). That works fine 😉

Get the old version from here.

I uploaded the old version to Rapidshare. Get it here.
