SCCM 2012 Client installation fails with error code 8004100E

Hi SysAdmins

In this post I want to show a solution for a  SCCM 2012 sp1 client installation problem which I met over my daily routine work.

The Problem:

You try to Install a SCCM client on a remote XP-sp3 machine, and the installation fails. In ccmsetup.log  you see the following:

MSI: Setup was unable to compile the file DiscoveryStatus.mof error code is 8004100E.

error 8004100E

The Cause:

Probably a corrupted .mof file on the client machine.

The Remedy:

To resolve this problem, run the following commands on the client machine:

mofcomp C:\Program Files\Microsoft Policy Platform\SchemaNamespaces.mof

And then run:

mofcomp C:\Program Files\Microsoft Policy Platform\ExtendedStatus.mof

I hope this has been helpful for you,
