McAfee VirusScan Enterprise for Offline Virtual Images 2.x, 1.x

Summary

VirusScan Enterprise for Offline Virtual Images
This article deals with VirusScan Enterprise (VSE) for Offline Virtual Images (OVI) on Microsoft Windows.

NOTES:
  • A version of most of the following information is available in the relevant product installation guides and readme.txt files. However, the original McAfee product and installation guides are unlikely to reflect the most recent McAfee support policy for those platforms because Microsoft releases new operating systems or service packs on a regular basis.
  • This article aims to contain the latest information. Some of this is made available via linked Product Management statements, which are also published in the McAfee KnowledgeBase.
  • Support for operating system service packs is generally synchronized with these service packs being supported by their manufacturer.
  • McAfee updates the supportability information for each new Microsoft Windows operating system after this has been released to manufacturing and within 30 days of that release.
