we are in the very early stages of getting together a windows 8 enterprise image. and will have the Mcafee 4.8 agent packed into the image, and will be deploying all other products via ePO.
when installing VSE 8.8p3 from ePO (currently 4.6.4) via a deployment task, it created 3 tiles on the desktop, and i am being asked not to have them install tha way.
I do not have an issue with the icons in the system tray, as they can be controled via the various ePO policy settings.
The question to the forum I have is, How can I prevent the McAfee icons from being created on the Metro desktop...
Am I able to have a command in the deployment taks that prevents the creation of the icons..
The products that I have seen this on so far are:
VSE 8.8 P3
Deep Defender 1.6 BETA
my EPO is 4.6.4, but will be upgraded to ePO 5.0 in the next few weeks.
Notice the Windows Metro mode is the new "Start" menu access point to your applications.
That means the Tiles are equivalent to "Shortcuts".
Refer to the install guide, and you have a property called LOCKDOWNSHORTCUTS.
Therefore, install the product with LOCKDOWNSHORTCUTS=True in your command line. I verified it works.
