          Hi miguelgrado,

           

          You will not see the DAT version in the new MFE 12.1 version, you have to check the Engine Version and last update to spot if you are running a current update or not.

            thanks.

            finally the interface is better but it consumes more memory ram and

            the Mcafee icon looks slightly odd ,automatically until it displays correctly when login window appears with mcafee log and I do not understand because it no shows the version of Dat

              I got a 3 year subscription of mcafee antivirus plus from hcl but i find that it is the 11.6 version.Is there any way to upgrade it  to the 12.1 version?Are the two versions very much different from each other?

                the interface is better

                And it has some new features but for the time being has important judgments on all memory ram consumption.if i could i would go back to the 11.6 .to install the 12.1 you must uninstall(used control panel first and  later it uses  mcpr ) and then reinstalled from your account

                  Everyone will get 12.1 soon unless they are obtaining the software from 3rd parties in which case at best it may be delayed while those 3rd parties 'test' it and at the worst, the 3rd party supplier may choose not to pass it on, however that is highly unlikely.  McAfee has no control over that..

                   

                  The memory usage seems to vary widely between customers, even between us Moderators, and McAfee are aware of it.   Fixes are being implemented all the time.     If it's of major concern start a case with Technical Support.  It''s free after all.

                    Today I installed on 2 computers, both running Windows XP SP3, the product Total Protection 2013, bought on a retail store but installed via WEB as recommended and got S.Center 12.1 on one computer with the new user interface and the 11.6 version on the other keeping the older UI.

                     

                    Any idea to get 12.1 on both?

                     

                    Thank you

                      The last I heard was that it was being held back for XP systems.   I do have 12.1 Beta on my XP SP3 VM and it works fine.  See here for the beta:  https://community.mcafee.com/docs/DOC-1236

                      I can't promise it'll still be available there for XP but worth a try.   If you go that route make sure you fully uninstall everything first.

                        It depends on the server you used was it the same for both? US Au Uk and Ca only ones to get 12.1. Check the affids for both are they the same? (in security centre "about" details.).

                         

                        You could retry the 11.6 Pc ie uninstall and reinstall and see igf it comes this time. That or wait it will update soon we hope.

                          They have smth like "sync time". Server should know that 1 PC was updated & only then the update will be deployed on another one. So it`s normal-few hs between updates for 2 PCs. Even if that PCs in 1 room. Just wait.
