We would like to know if McAfee VirusScan Enterprise supports Thin Clients running Windows 10 Embedded OS with Unified Write Filter(UWF) enabled.
Windows 10 embedded OS has some inherent challenges as mentioned below
UWF (unified write filter) in Win 10 IoT is a hard block from Microsoft and there is no work around that Microsoft allows for it. In detail as per our analysis:
So, we feel that definition update will crash when writes fails, which means that if the definitions reside on a drive that is protected by UWF it *will* crash the system, even if we fix the other issues around exclusions and registry keys.
STAR does not, at present, provide a way for us to change which drive is used for definitions to the drive in which CommonAppData, and natïve attempts fail on MSI restrictions imposed by Ding2MSI
Due to the above restriction posed by Microsoft, please suggest if McAfee has enabled support for Win 10 embedded OS.
See KB82761 for current updates
