I installed McAfee Total Protection recently using the DMsetup.exe downloaded from my account, which is current. The installer did install some parts in C:\Program Files\ and most in C:\Program Files (x86)\. I will list the 1st level child folders below. McAfee Anti-Spam for Outlook 2007 of course will not work because it thinks it installed the MSK folder in c:\progra~1\mcafee\msk when it really installed it in c:\progra~2\mcafee\msk. Thunderbird however DOES work, go figure.
Now before you ask me to do the CMD as administrator thing...DONE
It's quite common for software to be 64-bit compliant but not actually 64-bit, hence Windows having that x86 folder. My installation is exactly the same as yours in 2 Vista Ultimate SP2 x64 rigs and 2 Windows 7 Ultimate RTM x64 rigs.
My x86 folder is packed with a whole host of software.
If your software is malfunctioning or failing to install properly then I suggest the following:
1. Uninstall all McAfee programs through "Add or Remove Programs" in Windows "Control Panel".
3. Launch Windows Explorer and delete all McAfee files in "Program Files" but especially in "C:\Document and Settings\<user>\Application Data" and "C:\Document and Settings\All Users\Application Data". You have to set Windows Explorer to show all hidden files and folders (Tools > Folder Options > View tab). Just delete the McAfee folders even if they are empty in all the "Application Data" folders. Can be more than one! In Vista/Windows 7: C:\Program Files, C:\ProgramData and C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Roaming If you can't find these files don't worry. It just means that MCPR has done its job.
4. Reboot and redownload/reinstall your McAfee products directly from your account at the McAfee web site.
Well this is not a bash, it is fact. 32 bit emulation mode and a 64 bit application are entirely two different things. McAfee is not a 64 bit application it is able to install and run on a 64 bit system in 32 bit emulation mode only. I have a lot if applications in my x86 folder as well. I also have some real 64 bit applications in my C:\Program Files\ folder.
I tried like you said above, again. However I still get the same results. The first post should have stated I installed everything from NEW.
Well the folder issue is the way it is regardless but this "McAfee Anti-Spam for Outlook 2007 of course will not work" is beyond me I'm afraid as it is supposed to work fine in anything over Outlook 2000.
