    even after uninstalling Microsoft Visual C++ 2015-2019 redistributable and reinstalling MP i get the same error. As of now, i will revert the setting to 2103 and will wait for hotfixes

    If you search for ‘value 3’ in the mpmsi log then it will give the reason for the errors.

    Hi, @karthik palani
    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.

    Just a confirmation: You also ran the below PowerShell command on the server to remove all the left over traces of CCM in WMI.

    Get-WMIObject -namespace "root" -query "SELECT * FROM __Namespace where name = 'ccm'" | remove-wmiobject  

    And try to remove and reinstall the BITS component to see if it helps.

    Hi @karthik palani - The best way to look at it is the MPMSI.log file to get more details about the error as I mentioned in the detailed post about MP installation -

    MPSetup.log (MP Install and Reinstall status)
    mpMSI.log (MP MSI setup login for advanced troubleshooting)

    Also if you see an issue with MP after 2107 upgrade, it's worth looking at management point failures known issue highlighted It seems some of these issues are fixed with the latest KB if you are using the early ring version of SCCM.
