                Hi Dinesh


                Last line of the host file is localhost;

                The ping comand did not respond "time limite execed" - sending to a2047.x.akami.net [];

                The preeinstall tool run's OK;

                The MVT start's and end with the same error.


                I attach the error but it is in portuguese (lol) and the translation is "It is not possible to access the Mcafee server. Check your internet connection"

                  Hi Aiked,


                  The MVT language depends on your default browser language. Please change it to En-Us if you want the MVT UI to be in English.


                  Could you please attach the log file, McInstallation, from your %temp% folder.

                    Hi Raghavendra;


                    Do you mean that i've to reinstall my IE to an engilsh version insted the portuguese one?

                    I've attached the file you ask for.

                      Hi Aiked,


                      Thanks much.


                      No, nothing to do with IE. Since the message box language is Portuguese, I wanted to know what is your actual browser language and about your default browser.


                      It shouldn't show that you are Offline unless you are really. Did you tried installing MVT again? Is it the same?

                        Hi Raghavendra
