There is a "general" policy for the Agent (not VSE) where you specify where patches i.e. for VSE should be grabbed from. Is this also pointing towards the evaluation branch? as the patch has nothing to do with the deployment-task for VSE.
I found that the update actually did work when I checked the next day. For some reason, the workstations were still reporting the last patch. I haven't found why yet. Yes, I have a policy set up to pull from the evaluation branch.
Did you check the registry for the machines which patchversion is shown?
Value should be in szPackageNum
For 32bit check in just the Software\McAfee branch.
Thanks for your help in pointing me to the registry keys. I deployed patch 4 to another system (Windows 7) yesterday but today it still appeared on the old patch level. I checked the registry key you noted and it has a value of 6. CoreRef is VSE88P4 and szProductVer is 22.214.171.1247. These are all correct. Woke up the agent and now it appears correctly in ePO. Our agent to server communication is set to 4 hours and this machine had been turned off right after I applied the patch yesterday.
All is well now. Thanks again for your help!
