Is there any special reason why you have to use agent 3.6? Why not try 4.0 sp 3 at least.
McAfee Agent 3.6 is not supported on Windows 7.

You really need to move to EPO 4.0 or higher if you want to support Windows 7.
hmm..even in the Virtual XP mode??
Not sure why you would want to run outdated software, but it will probably run. Keep in mind XP Mode is really Windows XP running inside a virtual machine on the free version of Windows XP that Microsoft is giving away.
This is not a very scalable solution, and it's extremely difficult to manage since you have another layer of management on an already outdated OS. In my humble opinion this is really asking for trouble, but go ahead and try if that's all your company can afford.
Moving to EPO 4.5 with patch 1 is a much better idea if I was in your situation...
thanks for your opinion..
Our company is still using 3.6 version, and now considering to migrate to 4.0 in the near future.
the reason I'm doing this is I need to deploy test on my another labtop which has windows 7 on it before migration.
Since I had understood it's not gonna run on Win7, I used Virtual PC to test, instead. But, it didn't work as I already mentioned.
This is a history why I stick to outdated software ....
anyway, many thanks,
