Bamboo remote agent installation fails

While installing remote agent 5.1.1 I got an exception. Could you help to clarify this issue?

Which version of agent installer do you use? Could you try re-downloading agent installer from your Bamboo server and using that?

Last not least: version 5.1.1 is quite old. If you can do it, I would recommend an upgrade as we there was a number of improvements around server performance and server - agent connectivity since then.
