Error:"Error attempting to open the source file…" when installing Performance Center Server

While installing the Performance Center Server on a machine where the Symantec Anti-Virus product is running, the following error message is displayed:

"Error attempting to open the source file F:\Setup\Install\Server\bin\webclient.dll. System error code: 5"

The same message is displayed for the following DLL files as well:

MercResourceLogger

OTAReport

OTAXml

saclient

The DLLs are considered a threat by Symantec Anti-Virus and are added to its quarantine list. They are blocked every time the installer tries to copy them.

To avoid this issue disable the antivirus software.
