You are trying to install the component Acronis Agent for Hyper-V under some user USER1. But previously you have installed Acronis Agent for Windows and Acronis Agent Core under another user. To check which user has been used before you can check older Acronis installation logs in C:\ProgramData\Acronis\InstallationLogs.

During installation the software attempts to repair/renew the hash database of the agent located in C:\Windows\Installer\SourceHash{A4BE1E16-302E-41C5-829E-1F88FBD4EF26}. This operation fails, because the old hash is locked by another user (the one performing the previous installation) and thus cannot be deleted.


There are two ways to solve the issue:

1. Install Acronis Agent for Hyper-V under the same user which has been used for the installation of Acronis Agent for Windows and Acronis Agent Core.

2) Move the hash database C:\Windows\Installer\SourceHash{A4BE1E16-302E-41C5-829E-1F88FBD4EF26} to another folder and reattempt the installation under USER1.
