I have users who are seeing a makecab.exe popup window


It seems like it coincides with the deployment of patches through Dell Kace to the client.

I would like to confirm if this is a by-product of the Dell Kace patch deployment, and is there any way to get it so this window does not pop up, and if it needs to run, can we keep it minimized or running in the background without the user knowing?

  • I have the same problem when I try to use the K1000 to patch. I see dozens of those CbsPersist windows on my test workstation.
  • Getting the same thing, but only on one domain. We have two KACE appliances and two domains with some overlap. I'm only seeing these makecab windows pop up on one of our domains. Very weird, hope someone finds a solution! They can just be minimized, but I don't want users to freak out.
  • It seems like I am not the only one... has anyone else seen this and have been able to work around this?
