Categories: SteelCentral Transaction Analyzer Packet Trace Warehouse (AppTransaction Xpert PTW), SteelCentral Transaction Analyzer (AppTransaction Xpert)
Solution Number: S32955


When attempting to install a SteelCentral Transaction Analyzer Agent on the remote host you get the following error
Network filter limit reached error (error code 0x8004a029)


This error signifies that the number of filters currently installed on the system have reached the limit.
An example, Windows 7 has a default limit set to 8. However, it is possible to manually increase this limit to 14.

To resolve this problem, you will need to run regedit.exe and adjust the value of MaxNumFilters under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Network registry key:
  • Click Start, click Run , type regedit , and then click OK.
  • Locate and then click the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Network.
  • In the right pane, right-click MaxNumFilters, and then click Modify.
  • Change the value to “14”, and click to select the Decimal option, and then click OK.
  • Close the RegEdit
If this value is already set to 14 you may need to uninstall some of the other network filter drivers.
