VSE 8.8i Support for upcoming Windows 8 - Oct 26th?

Microsoft is supposed to be releasing Windows 8 on Oct 26th. Does anyone know when McAfee is going to release VSE 8.8i Patch 3 which is supposed to support Windows 8? Being a university, we are going to have students who will be asking for a VSE 8.8i package that supports their new systems with Windows 8.

 

It seems to me that McAfee is rather slow is providing a solution for upcoming operating systems. There are some vendors like AVG who have already released Windows 8 supported versions.


Microsoft Windows 2003 Standard SP2
EPO server 4.6.7 (build 278)
EPO server 4.6.7 (build 278) - test server
EPO Agent 4.8.0.1500 (Patch 2)
McAfee VirusScan 8.7i with Patch 5 about 8 systems
McAfee VirusScan 8.8i with Patch 2 & 3 -  2200 systems

    VSE 8.8 Patch 2 will install and run on Windows 8 / Server 2012

     

    By the way, the current builds are:

     

    ePO server 4.6.4 (build 202)

    McAfee Agent Patch 2 (4.6.0.2935)

    Virusscan Enterprise 8.8i Patch 2

     

    It might be worth getting your infrastructure up to date in readiness for your first Windows 8 boxes.

    I wouldn't have thought of putting 'frameworkservice.exe' as a firewall exception, would always have specified the port.  That's just the way I do things, coming from a non-windows firewall background.

     

    Can't you roll out that firewall rule via Group Policy to all boxes?

     

    We haven't seen any problems on our Windows 8 boxes so far with VSE 8.8 Patch 2.

     

    Cheers,

     

    Phil

    We have had no issues on our windows 8 enterprise tester with epo 4.6 MA patch 1 or 2 and VSE 8.8 patch 2, admittedly not firewalling it

    I run VSS 8.8 path 2 on my Windows 8 system (CP build) without any issues, same for my colleague on Windows 8 RTM and VSE 8.8 patch 2
