It seems that this is a "ePO" managed support question, I must be honest ,and admit that I have not the "Expertize "to answer your Question. Quite possibly another Moderator will pick up this thread and move to the appropiate Community, for better assistance/guidance.
I have no idea where to move this unless you are using a specific McAfee product as your main A/V. Hopefully someone from support will spot this and be able to answer.
This is where the Stinger pages steer people for support.
Thank you for your response to my discussion question. In reply the only application in question at the moment would be the stand alone McAfee Stinger AV scanner. I hope this helps in figuring out where the best place for my question would be.
Excuse my ignorance but can someone explain what the Stinger64 bit ePO version found herehttp://www.mcafee.com/us/downloads/free-tools/stinger.aspx is or what it is used for? I have been using the regular 64 bit version of Stinger thus far.
Actually consulting the Stinger pages, this is the right spot for it. The ePO version would be only for the Enterprise (commercial) environment where someone is using actual Endpoint Protection products.
Had you been using that I might have suggested asking in that section.
I'll email someone at the labs to see if they can help here as I have the faintest idea about use in Win PE setup.
Thank you Ex_Brit, I hope that someone will be able to point me in the right direction or at least duplicate the error.
You mentioned this was created on a read-only media. Have you tried to load this image on USB and then try to execute Stinger from WinPE.
I want to eliminate the read-only media causing possible issues. As part of troubleshooting, could you disable the scan forrootkits option in Stinger preferences? When checked, Stinger will attempt to install a filter driver and the read-only media could be preventing this.
I don't think this is going to work - The first thing Stinger does is download the latest and greatest signature definitions - on read-only media it's not going to be able to store them anywhere.
