unable to install McAfee framework

Hello

There is one pc in my network where i am not able to install McAfee Framework.

It is throwing me ERROR: 1714 The Older Version of Virusscan Enterprise cannot be removed.

and even i cannot start the framework service on that pc.

I am using McAfee VirusScan 8.7 patch 4 and latest McAfee Agent.

I deleted Mcafee folder and NEtwork Associates folder from registries.

also deleted legacy_mc,legacy_mfe, legacy_nai files from registries under root path.

deleted McAfee folder and network associates from program files and all temp files.

i rebooted the pc and tried to install Framework but still same error.

but i cud install VirusScan 8.7 and Antispyware.

guide me to troubleshoot the problem

Re: unable to install McAfee framework

I extract out the msi from the framepkg.exe files using winrar and then recache the msi on the pc locally using the following commands (then you can uninstall using frminst.exe /forceuninstall again or forceinstall another version over the top) :

MsiExec.exe /I c:\MFEagent.msi REINSTALLMODE=voums REINSTALL=ALL

*****THATS THE MSI OF THE VERSION THAT WAS PREVIOUSLY INSTALLED AND IS NOW FAULTY NOT THE ONE YOU WANT TO INSTALL NOW.

Re: unable to install McAfee framework

Yes we do that.....

just use that string to create a batch called recache.bat and copy the batch and the relevant msi version to the root of the remote pc, then run psexec batch file with the host names of the targets in the txt file in the same folder. The MSI should already be without interaction.

psexec @pcs.txt c:\recache.bat

pause

you can add credentials in the standard psexec form after the text file entry eg

-u %domain%\%username%

so you get

psexec @pcs.txt -u %domain%\%username% c:\recache.bat

pause
