    SaaS Ver. 6 Component disabled


      I have trouble in SaaS Ver. 6 installation. Firewall and SecurityCenter Communication components did not turn on. I have installed McAfee SaaS in a few computers without trouble.

      If any, normally I could get it fix by following solution below, but not this time.




      I had tried silent and normal installation for a few times and clean up / unistall everytime it failed.

      During Silent installation, VSSETUP.EXE will run for about 1 minute and dissappear by itself when I have Windows Task manager open.


      When I ran normal installation, I received error as below.

          Step 3:

          Where P is the parameter and V is thevirus scan, F the firewall and B the browser protection. If you want to exclude installation of any software you need to omit that parameter from the above command.


          Just wait for 5 minutes McAfee will be automatically get installed in your computer.
