Hi All ,


   I am trying to access my PIServer from my client application .


   I haven't installed any software on the client application . I am using my program and AFSDK dll . When I execute my program , I am getting the following error .


System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'OSIsoft.PI.Configuration, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=c3309f0734ba2805' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.


I researched in OSISoft forums and came to know that I need to install AFClient on my Client application server. I am trying to install the AFClient but as part of the installation it installs PI Network Sub System .  PI Network Sub System installation is failing with the following error.


How ever I am installing the software using Admin user . I am not sure why I am getting this error .


Could you guide me

1) If there is any solution to connect to PIServer with out installing AF Client on client server.

2) If AFClient is required , then can you let me know if you know about Error 1920 as mentioned above and if there are any alternatives / options / troubleshooting .


Thanks for your positive support.
