    McAfee agent on Windows 8.1 Update 1

    pg13

      Hi,

       

      I would like to know if anybody knows when will McAfee Agent 4.8 be compatible with Windows 8.1 Update 1.

       

      On the matrix page for McAfee Agent (https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB7753) it only says that for Windows 8.1, McAfee Agent 4.8 Patch 1 is the minimum supported version. But it does not say anything about not the Windows 8.1 Update 1 flavor, it only mentions "Windows 8.1".

       

      On the VSE side, it's much clearer. From the VSE support matrix page (https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB51111), it says that "Support for Windows 8.1 Update 1 will be provided by means of a VSE 8.8 hotfix, expected to be released in June 2014". That's clear, we must unfortunately wait until June...

       

      So my question is: is the Agent already compatible with Windows 8.1 Update 1 or must we wait until June or December for a new patch?

       

      Thanks.
