CCMSetup failed with error code 0x87d0029e


CCMSetup failed with error code 0x87d0029e – I was working on a new SCCM deployment for a customer. After a week the SCCM deployment was done successfully. I handed it over to the customer after doing some basic configuration specified by customer. However after few days the I got an issue from customer end. The customer reported that client push installation is not working. During the client push installation the error found was ccmsetup failed with error code 0x87d0029e. The client agent installation failed with same error even with manual installation. So digging up the error from log file and error screenshot looked something like this.

Site version ‘5.00.7958.1000’ is compatible. Client deployment will continue.
Successfully downloaded client files via BITS.
Validated file ‘C:\Windows\ccmsetup\vcredist_x86.exe’

To fix this error you could try the below steps.

  1. In most cases deleting the ccmsetup folder and installing the client agent resolves this issue. The errors comes up due to corrupt components inside the ccmsetup folder. The ccmsetup folder is located under C:\Windows. Therefore delete the ccmsetup folder and try pushing the client agent.
  2. Launch command prompt as Administrator. Type net stop winmgmt /y and press enter. Change the path to C:\windows\system32\wbem and rename the folder repository to repository.old. To do this use the command: rename repository repository.old. Next start the winmgmt process using net start winmgmt command. Winmgmt is WMI service within the SVCHOST process running under the LocalSystem account. Close the command prompt. Now try pushing the SCCM client agent and it should work well.
