VirusScan 8.7 with Patch 2 in an MID package

So i built a package with 8.7 with P1 and the hotfix, and then I added patch 2.

On several systems as soon as we come back from reboot to get all the drivers installed, mcshield starts crashing. I can install 8.7 + p1 + hotfix and then p2 later and all is well. This happened on 3 different computers, although with one removing the whole package and reinstalling stopped the mcshield problems.

If anyone else builds a package with P2 in it, let me know your success/failures.

Wait for the Repost with Patch 2

Historically, this is usually a problem. Adding the Patch to the MID package has not worked well within MID. I think, for the time being, you would be well advised to use the Patch 1 MID package for installation then apply Patch 2 afterwards.
