Issue types by root causes and troubleshooting step

If installation of Acronis True Image fails, it will automatically offer you to view the MSI log (see Creating an MS Installer Log of Acronis Software). Based on the information in the error message, the MSI Log and Windows Event Logs you can determine the root cause of the problem. Generally installation errors can be divided into the following categories:

Application lockups


  • Installation from the standard installer (.exe file) hangs at some step and installation cannot be completed

Possible causes:

  • Insufficient resources to proceed with the operation
  • Another software blocks operation
  • Another msiexec.exe operation is not completed
  • Installation hangs on resolving system paths (i.e. access is denied)
  • System drivers cannot be installed
  • Older Acronis files cannot be replaced
  • Issue in the installer


  • Disable antivirus software, firewall and all other security software which could block the installation, see .
  • Using Task Manager (Start -> Run -> taskmgr -> Processes -> Show processes from all users, review the list or currently running processes) make sure that no other msiexec.exe operation is running at the same time. If it is the case, wait for it's completion or stop the process manually to proceed with Acronis installation.
  • Check in the %TEMP% folder for the recent installation log. If installation log shows there are some problems with SnapAPI drivers, please try to remove/install it manually (see 1620: Removing Acronis SnapAPI Drivers); contact Acronis Support to get actuall installation files if the issues is related to other Acronis drivers.
  • Lockup issues can be caused by corrupt installer, hence make sure you downloaded the file completely and checked MD5 check sum.
  • Generally, how to proceed with lockup issues, see in 45992: Acronis Software: Troubleshooting Application Lockups.
  • If files of an older Acronis version cannot be removed correctly, use the Cleanup Utility.

Components missing after installation


  • Installed Acronis product cannot be launched
  • Product startup icon is missing
  • Acronis Windows services missing or cannot start

Possible causes:

  • Installation is corrupt
  • Some installation or configuration issue
  • Antivirus software blocked some components


  • It is possible that installation completed with errors, in this case try to repair installation or install from scratch.
  • If product startup icon is missing and product cannot be launched, try to repair installation or install from scratch.

Rollback on initial installation


  • Installation of Acronis product ends with rollback on initial attempt to install Acronis on a machine

Possible causes:

  • Software/hardware drivers incompatibility
  • Installation is blocked by antivirus software, firewall etc.
  • License issues
  • Issues with components dependencies and other (Acronis) products
  • User-related issues (insufficient rights, incorrect credentials etc.)


  • Check if there are any installation related error messages in the Windows event logs
  • Make exclusions to the antivirus software as described in .

Rollback on UpdateUpgrade installation


  • Installation fails over already used (or not completely uninstalled) Acronis version with rollback
Acronis for sabrent

Possible causes:

  • Previous version installed incorrectly
  • Previous version uninstalled incorrectly
  • Upgrade over a very old version (older drivers or registry entries cannot be removed automatically, cleanup tool does not help)
  • Operating system issues (Microsoft libraries missing or corrupt etc.)
  • User-related issues (insufficient rights, incorrect credentials etc.)


  • Try to repair previous version using Acronis installer and reinstall update/upgrade.
  • Try to remove previous version using using standard procedure or Acronis Cleanup Utility (we recommend to have/create a full backup before using the Cleanup Utility).
  • The best way to resolve Windows issues is to reinstall operating system, but check Acronis and Microsoft support first, if there any known related issues with solutions.

Installation fails with error


  • Installation fails with an error message displayed.

Possible causes:

  • Acronis Services cannot be registered properly during installation
  • The Windows Installer process has insufficient contiguous virtual memory to verify that the .msi package or the .msp package is correctly signed.

  • During the installation, the Acronis Services have not been started/stopped in a timely fashion by the operating system.


  • Check the quick solutions section.
  • Proceed to collect information step.



  • Uninstallation of Acronis True Image fails

  • Check if there is a known issue for the exact error code of BSOD. Check Acronis Knowledge Base, Microsoft Technet and other resources.

Slow Installation


  • Installation runs too slow

Possible causes

  • A step in the installation proceeds is too slow (issue in the product)


  • Stop all unneeded processes on your machine.

  • Start installation again.

General troubleshooting steps

Windows errors

Go to Start -> Run -> eventvwr.msc. Navigate to Windows Logs and check Application and System sections for error messages related to the installation procedure. Search for solution in Microsoft Support articles.

Go to known issues part and check for known solutions. If issue is not listed in known issues and persists, proceed to the next step.

Acronis errors

Check the MSI log for known issues. See Analyzing Installation Logs of Acronis Products Based on MSI Technology.

Collect Process Monitor Log and try to identify what is causing the installation error or problematic behavior.

If you cannot find a solution in KB articles and it is an installation over an older Acronis version, use Cleanup Utility in order to remove the previous version. Create Acronis bootable media and do a system backup before cleaning up (to make sure the system can be restored if something goes wrong) manually or using the Cleanup Utility.

Collecting Information

Collect following information and contact Acronis Customer Central.

MSI Log and System report is mandatory on all installations occasions.

MSI log

Alternatively check that installation log is included in the system report collected by the AcronisInfo Utility in the previous step.

Process Monitor Log

If the installation freezes, does not continue for a long time or it is not clear what is causing an error, collect Process Monitor log.


Installation can hang. In this case a dump of msiexec.exe must be created (if there are several processes with this name in task manager, every one of them should be dumped; it is preferable that a ProcDump utility is used to create the dump: see Creating Process Dumps with ProcDump).

If the installation leads to a complete system crash (reboot or BSOD) of system lockup, please collect full memory dump as described in Creating Windows Memory Dumps

System report

Collect information with AcronisInfo Utility.

Update/Upgrade sequence

Usually issues during installation are caused by specific sequence of installed versions on your machine. If possible always provide information about previous versions.

I am looking to purchase a dual SATA docking station and one of the uses will be for cloning hard drives with ATI 2014. In my experience, after using the cloning function about a dozen times, I found that it will pretty much always work as long as both hard drives are directly connected to the SATA ports of the motherboard of a desktop computer.

The issue is when i have to clone hard drives at a client's office using a laptop, i have tried doing this using:
- Sabrent USB-DSC5 -
- Sabrent EC-UST25 -
The problem arises when I use both these USB adapters to try and clone 2 hard drives; I can select the source disk with no problem, but the target disk in the ATI cloning function wizard is greyed out and i cannot select it (as if the disk is not compatible even though that disk was available to select as a source disk). I know this is due to the USB adapters because I can clone these exact 2 hard disks when connecting them to a desktop computer via SATA directly to the motherboard.

My question is, has anyone had experience with a dual docking station with support for 2.5' and 3.5' hard drives they can recommend?

Hi Alex,
I have a few comments / recommendations.

First. Please remove the source disk from the laptop, and install the target drive in its place. Attempt the clone operation with the source connected to the adapter or enclosure. This is the preferred (recommended) procedure for cloning.

If you are having problems selecting the target drive as a destination, please initialize it first before attempting the clone operation. This may not work in every situation with different hardware, so you also have the option of testing compatibility using a 2015 boot CD as well. This is free.

And last.. While cloning is fast, it is often safer to create a full disk image back up and restore it to a new disk.

Thanks for your answer shadowsports.

I should have mentioned that my work is in IT, therefore the cloning of drives I do is mainly for computers that are not my own, therefore it's just faster, when i am visiting a client that needs a drive cloned, to connect the source and destination drives to my laptop via USB and clone them.

I do initialize the drives before i attempt to select them as a destination disk, sometimes i even create a partition.

Acronis For Sabrent

I do know that sometimes there are cloning issues caused by incompatible sector sizes, and in these cases i do the backup - restore procedure.

I also just now learned that some SATA-USB adapters change the reported disk sector size and this seems to be the root of the issue, so i am looking to find a SATA-USB docking station that does not change the reported disk sector size.

It's useful to know that creating a backup and restoring is the safer way and I will do that when possible.
