Vista does NOT support ePO console

Just to make this clear (it wasn't to me when I searched the list). Mcafee support just informed me that you cannot install/run ePO console on a Vista system, and because the 4.0 interface is web based they will not be supporting it.

RE: Vista does NOT support ePO console

Just wondering - we have ePO 4.0 server installed on W2K3R2 - and the ePO 4.0 web console on Vista is running fine!

Regards
Michael

RE: Vista does NOT support ePO console

I run Vista on my PC.
I use internet explorer 8 Beta 2for the McAfee web console, it works fine.

We use ePO 4 Patch 3 on Server 2K3

Maybe they mean that the 3.6 console can't be installed on Vista.

I should have been clearer, if you are running ePO server software 3.6.1 patch X,null and you want to put the remote console software on a Vista system this is not supported (nor will it be). ePO server 4.0 patch X uses a web interface so of course you can use a Vista client.

One more caveat previous post...the ePO 4.0 console can only be viewed in IE 6 or 7. (sounds like 8 works too but not officially supported yet). It will not work with Firefox.

EPO 3.6 doesn't work for Vista because the whole idea is to force you to use the new stuff.

I can say that windows 7 beta can be managed by ePO 4, at least so far it works. Smiley Tongue

RE: Vista does NOT support ePO console

The ePO 3.6.1 console is an MMC snap-in. Microsoft changed MMC in Vista. That would require McAfee to create a new snap-in just for Vista. Why would they do that when 3.6.1 is scheduled to end of life 8/31/2009?
