    Systems with VirusScan and don't update to or


      Hi there,


      We recently installed VSE Patch on our ePO 5.1 installation and noticed that some of our systems don't even have the patch (Hotfix 3) installed, although they are frequently and recently communicating with the ePO server and all have a client task  to deploy VSE (Hotfix 4).

      All of the affected systems seem to be Windows 7, Windows XP or Windows Server 2008 SP2. Later devices with Windows 8, Windows 8.1 or other Server versions seem to be just fine.

      DAT and Engine versions seem to be fine on the affected systems.


      What can we do to track down the issue?


      Thanks for any help.

          thats no issue. Patch 3 is exclusively for Windows 2012/Windows 8 and does not install on anything lower. See PD24224.

            I have the same problem. Did you ever find a solution? All my devices are window 7 and yet they report as having virusscan (which from everything I have read should not install on anything except windows 8), but they will not update to

            • 3. Re: Systems with VirusScan and don't update to or



              it is a completely different question why your .975 (Patch 2) do not update to .1247 (Patch 4).

              So you must give more information:

              • Do you have a update task which involves VSE Patch 4?
              • Has the task been deployed to your endpoints?
              • Does your agent log at the endpoint say anything about that task (p.e. does the update start at all, error code, ...)?

                Hi Frank,

                I asked the question here as it appeared to me to be the same issue.

                We have a task which has been successfully deployed on all endpoints except those with patch 2.



                This is the log form an unsuccessful update:

                  Gary, have just a few PC's in my park with the same issues. got these few stuburn machines that keep doing my head in.

                  I know already that reinstalling the Agent on them has absolutely zero effect. So that I could exclude.

                  This is definitely the installer of the VSE I am afraid.



                  • 6. Re: Systems with VirusScan and don't update to or

                    Ok, you try to install VSE 8.8. with patch 4 OVER an already installed patch 2?


                    Two possibilities:

                    1. first deinstall VSE 8.8, that deploy VSE 8.8 Repost with Patch 4.
                    2. download and check in (into Master Repository) Patch 4 (not the complete installation file, only the patch!) and create an update client task witch deploys the Patch 4 only.
                    • 7. Re: Systems with VirusScan and don't update to or

                      tried both options, for now only 1 worked locally on ripping it off via the Add/Remove Programs. Uninstall job out of ePO didnt do the trick either which is pretty sad.

                      Somewhere some bits fell I suppose, quickest solution for me was just use option 1 on a handfull of clients out of 18k, which is not too bad either I think.

                      It just can happen to any product => but it happens

                      • 8. Re: Systems with VirusScan and don't update to or

                        Thanks again Frank, I will look into it form that angle.

                        justav I appreciate the input.


                        Will keep you posted if I find anything further.

                          If you have more than a handful of those bad behaving systems, you can contact McAfee Support for the "VSE Cleaner" tool, and with a little help of EEDK you can automate the force removal of VSE via ePO. Works like a charm
