I want to create an agent install package with newer dat file than the '1111' one that is embedded in the framepkg.exe you create from ePO.

Moved this to ePO for better support.



Re: agent package with current dat

Hi lmcashen, the DAT is included in VirusScan and not in McAfee Agent. This was done this way because in the past McAfee delivered a VirusScan package with the DAT file at the day the package was created and so it was outdated when downloading it 3 months after.

The other problem is that VirusScan with any outdated package is about 130MB and the one without DAT (the 1111 DAT is a fake DAT) is about 40MB

If you want to create a VirusScan package including a newest DAT you may use the McAfee Install Designer for VirusScan 8.8
