Login for Windows - Error parsing and validating configuration file

    Applies to:
  • Legacy SecureAuth IdP
Deployment model:
  • Hybrid
  • On Premises
  • Version Affected:  L4W 19.06 and higher


    When adding conf_version to the L4W config.json file and attempting to install L4W the following error is encountered:

    MSI (s) (64!44) [12:23:55:944]: Product: SecureAuth Login for Windows -- Error parsing and validating configuration file - see log file for details



    The config.json file is still in conf_version 1 format and so invalid for conf_version 2 or higher.




    Check that the host, id and secret are added to the apis array as shown below, then try installing again.

    • I believe conf_version should not be in quotes (ie: "2 ") .
      The correct format should be without quotes per the L4W documentation:
      "conf_version": 2,
