HOST IPS is disabled after VSE 8.7i install

We have HIPS Patch 2 deployed on Windows XP systems with VSE 8.5i running on them. We just started testing with 8.7i and found as soon as 8.7i was installed, the Host IPS portion of HIPS stopped working. It says HOST IPS is disabled on the bottom left even though the option is checked and the policy in ePO is also set to be enabled.

Note this only happens when upgrading virusscan to 8.7i. It works fine with 8.5i. Are there any new features in 8.7i that would take over the Host IPS portion and not let it function correctly?

RE: HOST IPS is disabled after VSE 8.7i install

That shouldn't be happening. Host IPS will disable the buffer overflow in VSE and provide that protection. The HIP BO engine covers more than VSE.

I have no idea why installing VSE 8.7i would disable HIP. Have you tried it with HIP 7.0 patch 3?
