Windows 2000 server and VSE 8.7/8.5

I recently had a server box die and it was rebuilt. One of the first things we did was put VSE 8.7 with patch 3 on it. Then the mcsheild service was stating "Paused". I updated the machine with the latest superdat but it still was staying paused. I uninstalled 8.7 and put on 8.5 patch 8 on the box. Now that i have 8.5 on the box it is now stating error 1075: the depedency service does not exist or has been marked for deleting.

If i go to the mcsheild service it shows no dependencies. If i go to the registry and look at dependencies i find mfevtp is listed, but that is not under any other services that i can find.

What do i need to do to get McSheild running?

(sorry for any gramtical errors)

Also, if you need any additional information please ask.

Re: Windows 2000 server and VSE 8.7/8.5


What is your Patch level for the Windows 2000 server software?


Re: Windows 2000 server and VSE 8.7/8.5

Patch level for Windows 2000 server software is SP 4. I verified that VSE 8.7 would work with Windows server 2000 and after a registry scrub i reinstalled it. I have to reboot the server to see if that fixes the issue.
