Force McAfee Agent to update via powershell

hello all,

     I am interested in making the McAfee Agent Updater program launch from powershell.  Is that possible?  The way that I launch the updater now is by R-clicking on the Mcafee icon in the system tray, and then selecting Update Security.

Hi there,


The product guide for VSE (PD22941 p. 91 ff, has examples on how to invoke an update from the commandline, that should do the trick.
