Re: McAfee Master installer McAfee Internet secuirty

Hi

This might sound like a daft question, I've not used this suite on OSX, but does the McAfee Master Installer use the OSX Installer, which can be skinned or is it a custom installer?

Could you take a look in /var/log/install.log This is the Log file written to by the OSX installer and can be used to track down installer errors or warnings.

The Master Installer 'might' log to /Library/McAfee

You can also check if the package has installed using and elevated terminal session.

sudo -su root

<enter your password>

pkgutil -pkgs

Re: McAfee Master installer McAfee Internet secuirty

Hi,

My error in the pkgutil command, should read:

bash-3.2# pkgutil --pkgs

Note the double hyphen.
