Download ePO patch 7, it is complete package and also supported to upgrade to 4.6 Patch 3 or 4 as well.
1.Backup your SQL DB.
2.BAck up your ePO server
3.Download 4.0 Patch7 and run the installer.
If it completes successfully, you are done.Taking backing is good, in casae something goes wrong and we could rebuild ePO with this backup later.
First apply 4.0 Patch 7 and then you can jump on ePO4.6 Patch 4 as well.

After installing the latest Patch you need to upgrade ePO to latest version. ePO 4.0 is out of support now.
Thanks for your response, the challenge is how to download the the patches i have search for it can cant find it on the mcafee site. Where can i find it. Thanks again
I am still seeking guidiance here. Now that i can not find any where to download patches 1 to 7 to update my EPO 4.0 installation (from all i have read is due EPO4.0 is out of support) and 1 need to upgrade to EPO 4.6, can i still use the SQL Database and backuped policies on the a fresh installation of EPO 4.6. pls help
what patch version of ePO 4.0 you are currently using ?
you can install ePO 4.0 Patch 7 on the following ePO 4.0 versions,
- McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator 4.0
- McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator 4.0 Patch 1
- McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator 4.0 Patch 2
- McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator 4.0 Patch 3
- McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator 4.0 Patch 4
- McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator 4.0 Patch 5
- McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator 4.0 Patch 6
To download ePO 4.0 Patch 7 go to www.mcafee.com and download the product by entering your grant number.
To upgrade from ePO 4.0 to ePO 4.6 Patch 3. you need to have patch 7 for ePO 4.0. you cannot restore ePO 4.0 database on ePO 4.6.
Why dont't you just install EPO 4.6.4 and then overwrite the agents on the machines. What's the setup? Upgrading from 4.0 to 4.6.3 will probably crash somewhere around the road. And if not, you can't except it to work too well when you have all those remnants of previous versions.
I agree with GeorgeC, there are massive differences between EPO 4.0 basic and 4.6.3.
If its at all possible you would be best to bring up a fresh 4.6.3 install and then reinstall the latest agent cleanly.
