VirusScan Enterprise 8.8 Hotfix 625756 installation fails if Host Intrusion Prevention is installed
Technical Articles ID:   KB75019
Last Modified:  4/21/2017


McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention (Host IPS) 8.0, 7.0
McAfee VirusScan Enterprise (VSE) 8.8 Hotfix 625756


When installing VSE 8.8 Hotfix 625756 on a computer with Host IPS installed, the hotfix fails to install.


Host IPS effectively prevents the hotfix installation from being completed by blocking mfehidin.exe from setting the Access Control List on mfevtps.


This issue is resolved in VSE 8.8 Patch 2.
