HIPS unable to install on XP

As per the recommendation, Windows Firewall is turned off. File/Print is turned on.

The following modules did install without any issues except HIPS.

MA, ABM, VSE8.7, Antispyware

The machine was hardened lately. Could it be security patch?

Any assistance on this is appreciated much.

I'm not a product expert but I have moved your post to our HIPs area. Hopefully someone can help you soon.

Re: HIPS unable to install on XP

You mentioned that the OS had been hardened.  This could have some relation.

Refer to the McAfee HIP Install log located in C:\Windows\ for starters.

Hi,

Likely you need to explicitly enable the BOF DAT definitions in ePO master repository update task if you use selective pull. Otherwise by default it does not pull them (i.e when using selective updating, it is unselected).

BOF DAT version today is 499.

Re: HIPS unable to install on XP

Can you confirm if you have VSE BUfferOverflow version 493?

Open the VSE console and then about box to get this version number.

If yes then you can try this to proceed for the install/update of HIPS through  ePO.

Edit the Access protection policy for VSE from ePO

Under  Common  Standard Protection->Prevent Modification of McAfee Files & Folders

Under the  excluded process list, add mfehidini.exe and then push out this updated  policy to all clients.

Once this has been done, push out your HIPS  install/Update to the clients.

That should be succesfull.
