I currently upgrade our VSE patch to the latest 8 in our ePO. And I also notice that windows XP is not supported by patch 8. Is there a way to deploy a VSE patch 7 on my windows XP machine?
It's fairly easy.
Check in VSE880P7 into the Previous branch.
Automatically tag Windows XP / Server 2003 boxes on agent call home.
Create an Agent General Policy which uses the "Previous" branch for VSE updates, and apply it only to boxes tagged XP or Server 2003.
Log in to the mcafee support site (product downloads) with your grant number and download vse880p7.zip.
Then check it in manually into the previous branch of your ePO repository.
All good now. Logged a support ticket on mcafee and they give me an ftp link to the old vse patch 7. Since I can't see it on my product downloads on mcafee site.
