PreserveStaticIP error in Launch log for HIPS 8.0P4

Hi,

Attempting to install HIPS8.0P4 on vanilla 2008R2 Standard server, with Agent 4.8.0.1500 and VSE 8.8.04001.  I appreciate Patch 6 has just been released, however we are currently on Patch 4 in this particular environment, and I need this answer in relation to Patch 4.  If a suggestion is to move to Patch 6, please could you possibly include notes of known issue references.

After the install (which appears successful), we have noted the following error in the launch log McAfeeHip8_Launch_8.0.0.3203.log:

10:12:00 start McAfee HIPS install bootstrap launcher for build 8.0.0.3203

10:14:38 Error 2: The system cannot find the file specified.

A quick search for this error has yielded nothing - could we confirm if this is an actual issue or simply an aesthetic error?

Many thanks,

Darren

PreserveStaticIP is a workaround put in place in the HIPS installer to preserve the static IP address assignment when installing/upgrading HIPS on a system (I think Win2003 server; install/upgrading HIPS would cause the IP address to be reset to DHCP).  To my knowledge, it's not a fatal installation error and can be ignored.
