Could you elaborate what minor version of VSE 8.8 you are trying to install (i.e. VSE 126.96.36.1997 (patch 4))?
Ideally if you could attempt the installation again and provide the log files it would help identify the cause.
Thank you for responding.
It's fixed. Called into support and determined that the issue was mcafee agent number 188.8.131.52 not compatible with 8.8p7. With 4.8 we were getting "platform not supported". With 184.108.40.206 we would see the deployment task come down but never actually install.
Per the 8.8 patch 7 release notes, we are now using 220.127.116.11 with no issues. I realize that 188 has issues with other mcafee products, but we are not using them at this time.
Here's the specific blurb from the release notes from mcafee agent hotfix 1110392 (18.104.22.1683)
Note: If intending to use Patch 7 as the prerequisite, Patch 7 is restricted to installing on MA 22.214.171.124 and you must follow these steps:
1. Install or upgrade to MA 126.96.36.199
2. Install or upgrade to VSE 8.8.0 Patch 7
3. Upgrade to MA 188.8.131.523
Offchance you know, can you confirm that 184.108.40.2063 cannot be installed directly (eg installed in one step, and that a previous build must be installed first, and then 333 must be deployed)?
I have performed a deployment McAfee Agent 220.127.116.113 to an unmanaged Windows 7 system (with no previous agent installed) in my test environment.
Then used a client task to deploy VSE 18.104.22.1688(patch 7) via the McAfee Agent 22.214.171.1243.
Installation of both products in this order appears to operate correctly.
