Port Control Upgrade to Device Control

Hello All,

Excuse to simply question but I cannot find any documentation on this.

Currently on Port Control 2.2, need to upgrade to Device Control 3.0. Can this be a stand alone upgrade or do you require ePO 4.0/4.5 to control Device Control? Is it a must ?

Also, can you simply upgrade Port Control or is it an uninstall and reinstall on a client?

ePO 4.0/4.5 is required for DC 3.0.

there's no upgrade path from SafeBoot Port Control. It was never brought into the McAfee fold so to speak. You'll need to remove it, and start fresh.
