Is there any other McAfee Products that is installed in the machine? Like HIPS, DLP
No, but I do have an update. VSE 8.8 will install most of the time, but it takes a very long time. This is recently purchased hardware with SSD drives and it takes 10-20 minutes to install if it doesn't outright fail.
Have you figured out what was causing this? We have same issue.. Only when installing on SSD drives. Mechanical drives are fine.
