Good morning,

Is this a joke?

Windows 10 is been tested since months ago and only now McAfee is developing a patch to make VirusScan 8.8 work on it?

So we are supposed to just wait to update some of our organization machines for testing Windows 10 with our own products because they were lazy?

(And yes, even for testing purposes I don't want a machine without antivirus on my organization network.)

Not a good way to support business costumers I think.

Less than 30 days to validate on the final code?  I think they're doing a lot better this time around versus what happened with Windows 8 which took two and half months before patch 3 was released.

This does bring up an interesting thought with Windows updates going forward.  When/how will we know that an upcoming Win10 update will break VSE?

Well... If with Windows 8 they took two and a half months to release a patch they shouldn't learn this time to release it sooner?

I'm not talking about home users. We bought the license.

They shouldn't be the step backwards in any migration scenarios.

Tests done.

The only thing that didn't worked on Windows 10 on my organization was VirusScan 8.8 Patch 5.

Well done McAfee!

Thanks twenden for the answer to the question. I was able to track it back to this McAfee KB that was updated yesterday: https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=kb51111 So i guess I am waiting August 26th to get it. How do you get the private release that is supposed to be released today?

How does a paying customer get hold of this "private" patch.
