In the past I have created an automatic silent install package for the McAfee Virusscan Enterprise 8.8 (VSE) using the McAfee Installation Desinger (MID 8.8). This worked fine on windows 7 32 and 64 bit and over time I added Patch 1 and 2 to the package.
Now I am trying to create a similar automatic package for Windows 8/8.1. According to the information on the McAfee site, VSE 8.8 patch 2 does not support Windows 8, but Patch 3 does. However, patch 3 does not support MID 8.8.
Therefore I waited for patch 4 to come out, as this would support the MID 8.8.
Now that patch 4 is out, I have loaded the install package (VSE 8.8 with Patch2), that I previously created for Windows 7, back into the MID and added patch 4. However, when I test the installation on windows 8.1, it gives me the message that this version is not compatible with Windows 8.1.
After which it doesn't install.
Is there any solution or workarround to this problem?
