Can anyone please help me out.
Do you already have a McAfee agent installed on your windows 2000 SP4 ?
This is a requirement. You have to use the MA 4.0 and install it before any VS8.8 installations.
This could probably explain why the update failed.
Hope this help.
I did install VSE 8.8 on Windows XP and Windows 7 machines the same way without the McAfee Agent (Downloaded the trial version and did a standalone installation). Everything seems to be working fine on these machines. The problem is with the Windows 2000 professional SP4 machines.

This behaviour is known as explain in the installation guide:
"You must install McAfee Agent version 4.0 before installing this version of VirusScan Enterprise on Microsoft
Windows 2000 Professional SP4 systems."
You were correct. After installing the McAfee Agent first followed by VSE, things have worked fine. Thanks for your assistance Vivace.
