The Prerequisites Check page of the Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) Setup Wizard shows the progress of the system preparation. The system preparation scans the destination computer to verify that it meets software and hardware requirements.
You can click Cancel at any time to cancel the installation and exit the DPM Setup Wizard.
Progress symbols are as follows:
- Arrow symbol = Check in progress
- Check symbol = Check item successful
- X symbol = Check item failed
If the check item failed symbol appears for one or more required or recommended components, Setup displays the following:
- Warning. Indicates that a recommended
component is missing or noncompliant. Review the alert and
determine whether to resolve the issue now or continue with the
installation. If any recommended component is missing, you can
click Next, and DPM will install the required prerequisite
- Error. Indicates that a required
component is missing or noncompliant. Resolve the error, and then
click Check to verify all components are installed before
you continue with the installation.

When the prerequisite check is complete and all required components are present, Setup displays a confirmation and the Next button becomes available.
