You'll never find Enterprise answers in Consumer. 

Discussion moved from Consumer to Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) for better handling.

Re: Version of McAfee ESM - VM8/VM12?

The difference between the VM8 and VM12 is the number of cores that can be allocated to that VM. 8 cores is generally fine for most functionality testing. I recommend you download "VM Enterprise Security Manager, Event Receiver & Log Manager VM8". Thanks.
