Failed Installation vCenter Converter Standalone, Error 29190 could not generate secure sockets layer (SSL) key

Trying to install the standalone version of vCenter Converter on a windows xp box. It starts to go through the setup and then towards the end it gives on error 29190. Could not generate secure sockets layer (ssl) key. Any ideas?

Hello and welcome to the forums.

This kb article details a fix for the Converter plugin - its not quite the same thing, but perhaps it will help.

Good Luck!

Thank you for the link, it was helpful and allowed me to solve the issue. I had to copy the c:\documents and settings\all users\application data\VMware folder from a different machine to the current one that I was having problems with. Ran the installation and it worked.

Again thanks...
