Well I am running EPO 4.5 and Agent 4.5 along with SP@ being pushed via EPO. However, I did manually install patch 3 to my machine and now I am getting the action center alerts saying my antivirus is disabled. I am running Windows 7 64-bit for OS and also I now started getting messages that my LAN connection has no internet access yet it works just fine. Not sure if I have something going on, but I have not patched my machine and I have not installed anything since I did the patch the other day. Seems like it all started the first time I rebooted after patching the install. Anyone else getting this behavior?
I'm pretty sure I remember reading somewhere that 64-bit versions of VSE can only be installed properly via ePO. I guess you could set make sure ePO is configured to allow Evaluation branch items in the Repository, and set your system to use the evaluation branch.
