    VSE 8.8 P4 install enforced every time by the client task

    yulasinio

      We recently updated the virus scan from P2 to P4 and the upgrade went fine on both server and clients, or that's what we thought.

      Yesterday when I was doing some other troubleshooting I noticed some events from MsiInstaller in the EventViewer log. On a closer look I find out that VSE was trying to install, found this strange because I had the correct version. 8.8.0.1247. Scrolling more I've see that this was happening at certain times, 12:00 AM and PM which lead me to check the ePO client task.

      We have a client task that runs every 12h on each system and install a number of products if they are missing e.g HIPS, SAE, VSE, DLP etc. I've checked that the correct version of VSE was added in the task and it is.

      Now, why is this happening? Would McAfee agent not verify the versions and skip the install if it's the same?

       

      Below is an extract from the log file found on my machine:

      MSI (s) (CC:38) [15:02:11:594]: Looking for patch transform: Patch1ToPatch4

      Anybody have any idea why is this happening?
