Documentation Correction: Endpoint Encryption for Files and Folders 3.2.5 Administration Guide
Technical Articles ID:  KB78545
Last Modified:  9/24/2013

Environment

McAfee Endpoint Encryption for Files and Folders (EEFF) 3.2.5
Microsoft Windows Vista 64-bit

Problem

The EEFF 3.2.5 Administration Guide (PD22590) incorrectly states that the EEFF client is supported on the Windows Vista 64-bit system.

The "Installing Endpoint Encryption for Files and Folders client" section (page 66) states:
Supported platforms
  • Windows 2000 Workstation SP4 with RollUp1
  • Windows XP SP2
  • Windows Vista (32 bit and 64 bit)
  • Windows 7 (32 bit and 64 bit)
In the "Installing Endpoint Encryption Manager" section (page 71), it is unclear whether Windows Vista 64-bit is supported. It states:
Supported platforms
  • Windows 2000 Workstation (evaluation use only!)
  • Windows 2000 Server
  • Windows XP (evaluation use only!)
  • Windows Server 2003
  • Windows Vista
In the "Design Philosophy" section (page 8), it is unclear whether Windows Vista 64-bit is supported. It states:
The Endpoint Encryption for Files and Folders client supports the following platforms: 
  • Microsoft Windows 2000 with SP4 + Rollup package 1
  • Microsoft Windows XP SP2
  • Microsoft Windows Vista
NOTE: Previous releases of the Administration Guide did not call out that Windows Vista 64-bit was unsupported because it only listed supported operating systems as Windows Vista. To clarify, no versions of EEFF 3.x support Windows Vista 64-bit.

Solution

The reference to support for Windows Vista 64-bit has been corrected in EEFF 3.2.6 and later guides. To review the content of the Endpoint Encryption for Files and Folders 3.2.6 Administration Guide, see PD23088.
