PROBLEM


The Altaro VM Backup console is not starting due to the following error:

"C:\Program Files\Altaro\Altaro Backup\Altaro.ManagementConosle.exe

Windows cannot open this program because the license enforcement system has been tampered with or become corrupted."




CAUSE


Altaro VM Backup is installed on a Windows Storage Server OS, which has a GUI dependency on .NET components not available on such an OS.



SOLUTION


You can install the full Altaro VM Backup installation on a Windows Storage Server OS, just not run the GUI (Management Console).


However, you can remotely access the installation running on this machine using the Altaro Management Tools.
