I understand that. But as they said it reduces the number of processes and should bring some performance improvement than it maybe a good thing. They may also come up with an icon colour change when VSE has a problem. We shall see in the coming weeks changes to that. I bet on it
But this "new" icon also seems to be buggy. It is only displays properly on xp-workstations. All our severs still have the old Mcshield-Icon after logon. To get the new icon i have to reactivate the agent and wait for a few minutes. And if i logoff and logon ... the old icon is back again.
When you change the agent settings not to display the agent icon, this specific error is gone, but other errors suddenly emerge... But the hotfix fixes the errors, so as long as you've applied the hotfix, it should be fine regardless of the settings you use.
First tests look positive, no errors on my first testsystem (upgrade from agent 4.0 with VS8.7p2 and the hotfix already applied). I'll expand the test to a number of systems and if there are no errors, I'll deploy the agent company wide. The hotfix is already being deployed to all systems, so it looks like it's gonna be ok after all happy
