    McAfee components available for Windows XP embedded

      Hello

       

      In our organization we use  windows embedded XP targets for controlling equipment.

      We currently have a potential security risk, since these targets are connect to the network.

       

      After some experiments with Virus scan enterprise 8.5.0i it turned out that this could be a proper solution.

       

      For my experiments I just the default installer to install the product, but this approach is not suitable for distributing it over a larger amount of target.

      Therefor I want to include my Virus can enterprise 8.5.0i or 8.7.0i in my windows XP embedded distribution.

       

      For this I need a component version of McAfee that can be used in xp embedded tool for creating a distribution.

       

      Is such a component version available or are there other easy solutions to install and configure McAfee on embedded XP targets?

       

      Kind regards,

      Martijn.

            Whether VSE 8.5 will run on Windows XP embedded will depend on how many of the XP components you have installed.  If it is just about all of them then I can tell you that VSE 8.5 will run just fine.   HIPS 7 will also run just fine.   We are runnng both on a large number of devices.
