As a test I was pushing this version out to a couple test machines to see how it performs in our environment. The update flat out fails with the error message that it cannot create a restore point. Is restore point creation mandatory for this? We currently have it disabled in our policy.


Ended up having to modify Policy to allow this to happen. Do notice that this current version installs with the wrong version number though (which makes things confusing) it installs as instead of the proper version of as manually selected within the portal. Removed it multiple times in case I had selected the wrong one and confirmed, when you tell it to update or install from scratch to version it installs

Seeing the same issue on my end. All endpoints this has been pushed to have downgraded to The version being pushed clearly says ‘’.
