I am trying to install Sitecore 9.1 instance on my development machine. But the script is being blocked by antivirus. The powershell window just closes after it is blocked. It does not show any errors.

enter image description here

Below are the last few lines in the log -

[---------------------------------------------------------------------XConnectXP0_CleanShards : Command-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------]
[ShardingTool - Clean]:[Path] C:\inetpub\wwwroot\agnlocal.xconnect\App_Data\collectiondeployment\Sitecore.Xdb.Collection.Database.SqlShardingDeploymentTool.exe
[-------------------------------------------------------------------- ConnectXP0_CreateShards : Command-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------]
[ShardingTool - Create]:[Path] C:\inetpub\wwwroot\agnlocal.xconnect\App_Data\collectiondeployment\Sitecore.Xdb.Collection.Database.SqlShardingDeploymentTool.exe

Please suggest how to install.

    Can you try disabling antivirus before installation process? – S.Kazmi Sep 27 '19 at 4:54
  • We are not allowed to disable antivirus as per company rules. Can you please suggest any other way? – NewbieHere Sep 27 '19 at 4:56

    What you can do is work with the security team to provide exclusions for specific files and directories. – Michael West Sep 27 '19 at 10:50
  • Thanks. Did the same. Installation is done now. – NewbieHere Sep 27 '19 at 11:57

These kind of issues can be easily overridden by using virtual machines (VM). This is one of the reasons why I am using VMs and not installing Sitecore, Visual Studio, SQL Server and other apps directly on my laptop's OS.

Hyper-V technology build directly into Windows was causing me trouble when on Wifi and I couldn't override settings because of company rules.

That's why I strongly suggest to use Oracle's Virtual Box as your virtualization tool.

You need to have laptop with at least 16 GB of RAM so you can assign at least 10 gigs to your VM to make Sitecore work as smooth as possible.
