VirusScan 8.8 Patch 1 - Date Enquiry

Hi,

Does anyone have any update on the RTW date for VirusScan 8.8 Patch 1 please?.

User "wwarren" appeared to indicate it would be this week in one of the recent VirusScan 8.7 Patch 5 threads.

Thanks

Iain

Yeah, that was one of the possible futures at the time I posted.

Now we'll be posting either later this week or early next. The additional time wasn't due to any issues being found, but just to lower some risk and conversely raise some confidence in other areas. A few days is all that should be required.

Any update on the release of patch 1?  There is a bug that is fixed in this patch that I really want to get pushed out to my users.

That's correct.

This won't change until the issue described here is resolved: KB73274.

Is it planned to post a "full setup" (including P1) aswell?

Yes. This is always planned when we release a patch, so that customers making new deployments can do so with the updated base-install package.

It also provides an opportunity to update our installer, so that it removes more incompatible software that we didn't know about when the original release was posted.

Patch 1 is still now available in the My Products Downloads of VSE 8.8.

When will it be available? I need it to install an other hotfix.

Would you believe me if I told you later this week?

The fix we're holding back for (from our SolidCore team) is due to release tomorrow. We'd then expect the patch 1 posting to follow soon thereafter.
