if the os is windows 7,it's ok;
but the os is windows server 2008,it encounters a problem that I can't run this tool.
Can someone give some help ?Thank you.And I want to know the requirements of using this tool.

    It sounds like you are using the Windows Tool. Make sure you are using the Unix, Mac, Linux tool.

    There are 2 separate client deploy tools.

    One is made for Windows. One, as Tim mentioned, is made for *NIX and Mac. If you are deploying to Windows, you need to use the Windows tool. It should be able to deploy to any windows systems. I sent some links that would have the requirements and common troubleshooting steps if you can't deploy to some systems.

    I see. My mistake. You want to run it on Windows not install Windows agents. Here is a forum post that discusses some of the requirements.

    As you have mentioned,the two client deploy tools:
    one,for windows:I use the third way(the lists of computer) and input the correct user and password,it comes a problem that prompts "windows error:wrong user or password"
    and the other one,for *nix and mac:I have tested at windows server 2003 it runs OK,windows 7 it runs OK but at windows server 2008 it can be installed but can't be run.

    Yes. It should be able to run on any machine. Not just the TEM server.

    Your answer is exciting,but how can this tool communicate with TEM server and clients?
