New to EPO updating virus scan 8.5 - 8.7


I am quite new to EPO, however, it looks like a fantastic enterprise tool.

I am currently getting my feet wet with depolying McAfee software (Site advisor, EPO agent etc). I am currently trying to update the version of the enterprise AV on a test PC. I currently have 8.5.0 on the PC, I have tries to push the newer 8.7 to the pc through the EPO console. System tree / choose PC (check mark) / actions / agent / update now / choose the update virus scan enterprise 8.7.0. I then wake up the PC. I see in the log that it seems to connect and everything seems to be successful but version is still 8.5.0. Is this the correct way to do this?

I done this exact install with the site advisor and it seemed to work properly.

Any help would be appreciated.

sounds like the update you're running will just update the patches, dats etc. In order to upgrade the actual product you need to use a deployment task.
