that article refers to another service, McShield and not McafeeFramework, but i checked the disk anyway, and it's set to basic in Disk Management.
You are getting this error code when installing McAfee Agent (included with VSE).
You can try to finish the installation and then install McAfe Agent, sometimes I had to the the same because it was the only way sad
i can try that, but if there is no real solution to the problem known, mcafee should fix the problem with the msi file.. Where can i report bugs to mcafee?
Might be a wild guess, but perhaps if you check
Supported environments for VirusScan Enterprise on Microsoft Windows (and/or Supported environments for Common Management Agent if you're using ePO).
It says there are issues with ITANIUM CPU (surprise, the problems with 64 bits seem to be solved).
"There are some performance issues on the Intel Itanium 64-bit platform due to it having limited capability for supporting 32-bit applications ."
Does your server have an Itanium ?
We've had a few systems with similar error messages "Service ... failed to start".
The only solution I found was a complete uninstall (including the Agent with /FORCEUNINSTALL) and then a reinstall.
This is a bother since installing the agent is a manual operation here, it means user intervention... :(
I had the same error when I try to manually instal McAfee VSE 8.8 on win 2003 sp2 32bit (Running on vmware vm). This was the first anti virus installed on the given OS.
After a lot of headache finally installation succeed, when I installed VSE 8.7 agent and after that I run VSE 8.8 installation.
I hope this will help someone.
