The evaluation branch is used for preventing massive deployment of a software, in this case it also allows you to have 2 different agents into your repository but for the MA you can only use the evaluation branch to deploy a new agent with the new agent version but you cannot use it for an upgrade task.
If you want to deploy the agent to an existent machine you have to delete it from evaluation branch and check it again to the normal one.
Before doing this be sure the global upate is disabled (Config->Server) and that you don't have any upgrade task with the MA checked, otherwise it will upgrade all th agents.
Thanks for your advice. Yep it was zip within zip; advised that the extension was not essential for deployment but need for future product compatability I believe. Great use of Forums as it proved to give me the answer quicker than support in this instance.
I did check in Mcafee Agent into the current branch, and client task deployment has been manually controlled as task disabled at root. Interestingly I have found a difference in the number of files in the common framework folder when deployed centrally from EPO (63 files) against a manual install of the framework package (52 files)
These were the extra 11 files that were found using central deployment
