Install VSE 8.8 P2 without McAfee Agent

For some reason I never noticed this before but when I manually run the VirusScan 8.8 with Patch 2 full installer on a server it installs the McAfee Agent as well. ( Has this always been the case? I am currently running McAfee Agent 4.5 and have plans to go to McAfee Agent 4.6 in the near future however when some of our server admins want to manually install VSE 8.8 P2 on their servers they get McAfee Agent installed as well. I do not have the McAfee Agent 4.6 extensions installed on my ePO server as of either so they do not communicate with the ePO server even if they could how would these installations even know where my ePO server is? Is there a way to manually install VSE 8.8 P2 without the McAfee Agent as well?  Thanks in advance.

    It has always been this way .

    VSE installs the agent in "Updater" mode, so it can update and run scheduled tasks.


    Managed environments now wanting to manage those systems simply push the agent install to it, and the Agent will 'do the right things' to then talk to your ePO server. But if you have difficulty with this task you'll want to chat with the McAfee Agent folks (use ePO forum).
