McAfee Data Exchange Layer client on Win 10 computers



I'm currently upgrading my DXL clients running on my Win 10 computers from to

What I've noticed during the upgrade, some computers have these versions of DXL installed instead



Is it possible to do an upgrade from to in one jump?

If i then upgrade 4.1.1,, and to, i get a restart prompt from DXL. Is this expected?

Re: McAfee Data Exchange Layer client on Win 10 computers

Per the release notes for dlx 4.1.2, the older version must be anything between 2.1.0 and 4.0 before upgrading to 4.1.x, so yes, you can directly upgrade the 4.0 clients.  If it is requiring a reboot, then yes, it is expected.  That might depend on version you are upgrading from, os reboot requirements, or it may just need it to remove previous files.  You can disable that prompt in the agent policy so a reboot can be done later if needed.
