Grant Number access to downloads, reorganized, some items no longer available?

Jump to solution

Periodically, and when Patches are scheduled for release (like VSE v8.8 Patch 6 on 8/26/2015), I login to:

McAfee Downloads - Antivirus, Antimalware, Virus Scan | McAfee.

Using my customer's grant number, I download new releases, updates, patches, hotfixes, etc., and evaluate implementation in their environment.

I like the re-organization of Current Versions and All Versions, for download.

Most of my customers have McAfee Endpoint Protection Suite.

Looking at updates just a few days ago, I found McAfee Installation Designer (MID), which has not changed with VSE Patch 5, or Patch 6 to my knowledge.

However, today, I note that MID is not listed in either Current or All Versions. Has MID been removed or removed for Endpoint Protection Suite, or is this just an oversight and will be re-introduced later?

Are others seeing MID in their list?

Thanks,

Ron Metzger

a new look and feel for the McAfee


Product Downloads Site. The new site

make it easier for them to find their


Product, Version, and Files they need


to download.



Fewer clicks, more seamless


customer experience



● Enter a grant number and the site


   automatically identifies any other


   grant numbers associated with the


   account and pulls in all products


   under all grant numbers. You no


   longer have to remember the


   specific grant number for each


   product.



● You only have to accept the EULA


   once after you enter the grant


   number. You will not be prompted


   again every time you click on a file


   to download.



Better organized interface


easier to find the desired download



● End of Life and Out of Support


   products will no longer display,


   making it easier to identify the


   download you want.



● For each product, available


   downloads will display on two tabs:


   Current version (which shoes the


   most current release) and all


   versions (which shows all active,


   available versions). This makes it


   easier to find the version you want.



● After selecting the version,


   available files are organized on


   tabs for easy viewing: Software


   Downloads, Patches, Hot Fixes,


   Extensions, Packages, Other,


   Documentation. (Tabs that do not


   contain any files will not appear.)




Seems to document the changes I observed. I also observed that MID v8.8P4 was re-released.

However, does anyone else see any missing product downloads as compared to the previous site.

Thanks,

MID was useful years ago and one of the big issues is you could only install it on a 32 bit system. They never recompiled it for 64 bit systems and you couldn't use compatibility mode either. For those who like to bundle it up like a nice Wyse wrapper, we will have to see if they re-introduce it back into circulation as a 64 bit offering. Thanks for letting everyone know!

Hi,

yes, there are troubles. There are also missing many products with any of our GRANT Numbers. TIE/DXL/ATD and much more is missing for us.

Cheers

Check for ATD. See if you have it available under your Suite/Grant Number.

Excuse my ignorance, but could you let me know what product you are referring to: ATD (Advanced Threat Defense???) and what is the product / suite name for your grant number.

Thanks,

Hi ,

at the moment i have two GRANT Numbers. One eLite Partner Grant and one SIA Partner Grant, no Product Suite Grant. ;-)

First Time just the McAfee Resellser Support "Suite" was available. Now i can also see the Data Protection Reseller Support, Emerging Technology Program Resellser Support, Network Securiy Reseller Support, Risk & Compliance Mgmt Reseller Support and Web and Email Reseller Support.

The ATD Software Download for my ATD appliances is still missing.... :-/

Cheers

As of 2015-09-01, MID v8.8.0.4 has reappeared! For me anyway.

Good to see MID is back.

Thanks,
