Despite checking the other patch in im still getting:
2010-03-24 13:00:53 E #2200 Sched <<--CSchedule::UpdateOneTask hr=0x80000016 : Platform is not matched
2010-03-24 13:00:53 E #2200 Sched Failed to update the task 6 of EPOAGENT3000 at enforcement (Error: 0x80000016)
I have installed patch 2 in extensions and still no VSE installed on windows 7 clients
If you go to https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=home
and search on platform codes, you will probably find your answer. You need to tweak your tasks (probably recreate them) to work with Win7.
kc.mcafee.com is your friend.
Thats spot on HupSkiDup, i had not finished all the steps in the KBs that address this, specifically I had not deleted and recreated the deployment/update tasks.
Unfortunately I deleted the extension in EPO for the VSE 8.7 Patch 3 and with that my policies disappeared. There was some chaos but mostly sorted now. If anyone know how to get their policies back let me know id appreciate it.
Once you've got the policies the way you want them, I'd suggest exporting them - that way you can reimport them should it be necessary. I would also strongly recommend that you re-export them if you upgrade the extension for the product - so if you upgrade the VSE extension, re-export just the VSE policies - as it's entirely possible that policies can be extension-specific.
