Windows 7 & VSE 8.7i Patch 2

Does anyone know if McAfee is still on track to release VSE 8.7i Patch 2 by the end of September?

Just read today that Microsoft is allowing the PC makers to start shipping Windows 7 PCs a week early (Oct 13th). We don't have a lot of time to test VSE 8.7i Patch 2 and the first Windows 7 systems. I have read that Patch 2 is the only supported patch for Windows 7.

I work at a university and we really need the VSE 8.7i Patch 2 package early so we can give it to our helpdesk.

The pressure is one, wish McAfee would give us more time for testing.

Well, VSE 8.7i Patch 1 works fine on Windows 7, it's the McAfee Agent 4.0 Patch 2 that doesn't work. Patch 3 for the Agent "should" be out within a couple of weeks as it has been in Tier 3 since the beginning of the month. Patch 3 takes care of the Server Communication issue that it currently has. Right now, you can install everything on Windows 7, it just won't update, the couple Windows 7 machines we have, I just make them run manual DAT updates on them.

Yes, Patch 1 will work as that is what I am running at home as a test. However, you can't call for support since Patch 2 is the only one supported.

Thougt Patch 2 does come today, I did look a few minutes ago but it's not there yet.

So stay tuned would i say and upgrade to patch 2 soon it's there.

RE: Windows 7 & VSE 8.7i Patch 2

Downloaded it just a few minutes before and works without any issues on my Windows 7 box so far. happy

Log in to the corporate download site with your grant number, navigate to VSE 8.7, click on the "patches" tab (or something like that)

RE: Windows 7 & VSE 8.7i Patch 2

I've upgraded my Win 7 box with VSE SP2 and also Agent SP3 and still I'm not able to get my policies applied.

I can deploy software (VSE, MSA, HIPS ...) from within ePO console but for some strange reason policies are not applied. Doesn't matter if it's VSE or HIPS. Anyone else with the similar problem?

Don't see anything weird in agent log and enforcing policies doesn't work either ...

Have you installed the updated agent, vse, and vse reports extensions into ePO?

Yep, I've read your post in the other thread ... that's why I'm wondering what's wrong wink
