Hi, you have donwloaded centreon_plugins, not NSclient++ package from centreon


Nsclient++ :

Latest centreon_plugins:

Once NSC++ is installed, go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Centreon NSClient++\scripts\centreon and replace the centreon_plugins.exe by the last version you have downloaded ( remove the date in filename )

Thank you @MichaelW, i though  that nsclient++ was build inside centreon plugin.


Thank you for your support
