Dear All,

I have been through McAfee documentation and I was wondering what's the difference between FramePkg.exe and FrmInst.exe

Frminst.exe is the actual installation program that installs, modifies or removes the agent: Framepkg is a wrapper that goes round frminst and contains the additional files that are required for installation - the sitelist and key files.  Effectively what happens when you run framepkg is that it unpacks the files required for the install and then calls frminst with the necessary switches to complete the install.
