Can't install Endpoint 10.6.1 on WIndows 10 -1903

Jump to solution

On a clean install of WIndows 10 - 1903 you are unable to install Endpoint 10.6.1 as it's blocked by Microsoft. McAfee haven't released a standalone full installer containing the May 2019 Endpoint update only a patch.

Will McAfee be releasing a standalone full installer for Endpoint 10.6.1 (May 2019 update)?

@ChrisQ ENS 10.6.1 May Update has compatibility with Windows 1903, so we do have an offering for 10.6.1 available. However, since it is not a full installer, you must upgrade ENS to that build prior to upgrading the OS. This information is outlined and available via KB85784

We understand and hear your concerns regarding the current lack of full installer for new 1903 systems. I can assure you that as the announced validation infrastructure changes have progressed in our environment, our teams are actively working as diligently as possible to complete the necessary final validation cycles to get the ENS full installers to you as quickly as possible. I highly encourage you to subscribe to KB91587 which we are keeping latest apprised of the available details, so you can stand by for this upcoming Tuesday's update to the release information. 

We are aware of the weight of the results of these delays and we hear you. These delays are not in line with our standard goals for software option availability for our customers. However, please be assured that, while painful now, these infrastructure upgrades and enhancements are going to allow us to be more effective in serving you moving forward.

I can confirm for you that installation of McAfee Agent does not change the status of Defender.

We are noticing issues also. We have several laptops that we can't deploy ENS 10.6.1 to. It appears that during an upgrade to Windows 1903 that it must have uninstalled the previous ENS of VSE version.

I noticed that on KB85784 that it mentions that ENS 10.6.1 May Update is supported. If say Microsoft forces a removal of ENS 10.6.1 then how can we redeploy the one with the May update as that is only a patch. 

So it appears that we have to wait until Jun 11 which will leave systems that have upgraded to Windows 10 1903 unprotected.

The Windows upgrade should not force an uninstall of the May Update. Support was added to the May Update for this exact 1903 upgrade scenario.

We just upgraded a client system to 1903, when will Mcafee get us a standalone installer that will work with this version of Windows 10, next month?

Sorry, but your reply might be correct, but doesn't help me. Why does it take so long to release this 1903 compatible update. Again and again, when MS releases a major upate to Win10 we have to wait until McAfee catches up. Most of your competitors are a lot faster. In the mean while please release a FULL stand alone installer of the may version of Enpoint Security.

Hello,

 

why dos McAfee say ENS 10.6.1 with Win 10 1903 supported? Is there a way to install it?

https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB85784

https://kc.mcafee.com/agent/index?page=content&id=KB82761&actp=null&viewlocale=en_US&showDraft=false...

I opened a case, but the answers weren't usable:
1 Answer: I should install ENS 10.6.1 Fullinstall from December and then the May Update
That's why I opened the case, because it's not possible.

Answer 2: I only have to install the update. --- ???
I really tried it, which of course aborts with the error message that ENS is not installed.

We can only uninstall the windows update. Install the ENS back and push the ENS May update on top. Then install the Windows update 1903 on the machine.
