Got some questions about VS Enterprise Installs.
Issue the VS portion of McAfee will not install. The MSI will roll back the install automaticlly while running. This is a x64 Windows 2k8 box operating in a Terminal Server role w/ roaming profiles.
%USERPROFILE% does not direct to the same drive as the OS. so the OS is on C:\ but the user profiles are on E:\Profiles
This is the exact problem that I am experiencing (from the McAfee Corporate KB) Error - SysCore install failed: 255 (issue: in 64-bit server)
Error in the install log: Installing SysCore "C:\Program Files\McAfee\VirusScan Enterprise\VSCore\mfehidin.exe" -i -q -l "C:\Windows\TEMP\McAfeeLogs\vse8.8.0.core_install_.log" -x vse.xml OAS EmailScan ScriptScan
Error - SysCore install failed: 255
I have checked and the registry keys for Common Data are present and there is no Program without an extension on the root of the hard drive referenced in the KB articles.
When I look at the other VSE install logs, there are errors that say the installer is unable to copy mfewfpk.sys files to C:\windows\system32\drivers
Does anyone know why this won't install?
If you haven't yet opened a SR with McAfee support, I suggest to do so to get this investigated. It might well be that in your case something else prevents the installation. Root cause is hard to come by in most cases, Process Monitor Log (during a failed install) may give away some hints.
