Tried to deploy HIPS 8.0 to a windows 10 notebook from the ePO ver. 5.10.
I was able to load the other products like PAA, DLP and ENS, but I keep getting an error as it tries to apply the package.
In the event viewer I get, Update failed with hr: 0x8024402c
I was able to install HIPS to the other notebooks and servers, but this notebook keeps getting error loading HIPS8.0.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You may try using Endpoint Removal Tool and check if it helps.
Please run the tool with "McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention" selected.
Note it might say "Undetected", proceed anyway followed by reboot.
If the installation fails after, please gather MER and open a support ticket.
I work with the DoD and don't have access to the grant number, so I can't download the Endpoint Removal Tool and the MER tool.
What I have noticed is that the installation fails after verifying vcredist_x64_2010.exe.
The next line that comes up is: Error occurred while installing HOSTIPS_8000.
At the end of the task a message states: The task HIP 8.0 windows install has failed.
Are there any other suggestions to troubleshoot the problem, and what logs to look at to help identify the issue. I've looked at event logs and a few Mcafee logs which I can't recall at the moment, but none of those logs had any meaningful information other than generic errors and nothing specific on where to start at.
