Solution

VirusScan Enterprise
VSE 8.7i Patch 2 is the first version to provide full support for Windows 7 and Windows 2008 R2. It was made available 3 November, 2009 and has been superseded by Patch 2 Repost.

VSE (managed by ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO))

  • Environments where VSE is managed by ePO 4.0 (or later) must check-in the VirusScan extension update package released with Patch 2 or later.

    NOTE:
    If you are using the Patch 2 Repost, the Patch 2 Repost extension update package must be replaced by that used in Patch 2. McAfee advises to use the latest Patch level however. 
     
  • To run on Windows 7 or Windows 2008 R2, all VSE 8.7i tasks have to be re-created within ePO 4.x.
  • Alternatively, use an SQL script that can update the existing tasks. See article KB67321 for instructions.
Host Intrusion Prevention
Host IPS 7.0 with Patch 5 is the first version to fully support Windows 7 and Windows 2008 R2. For more information, refer to article KB65844.
