McAfee investigated this issue and a solution is currently available. This solution is currently not generally available, but is in Released to Support (RTS) status. To obtain the RTS build, log on to the ServicePortal and create a Service Request (https://support.mcafee.com/ServicePortal/faces/serviceRequests/createSR). Include this article number in the Problem Description field.

See KB51560 for detailed information on release cycles.


The following tables identify the McAfee products supported for use on Windows workstation and server operating systems. Only the most current versions are included, because most customers upgrade to the latest service packs shortly after they are released.

NOTE: Windows Vista Extended Support reaches its EOL date on April 11, 2017. Support for FRP is no longer be provided on this operating system since that date.
2 Support for Windows 8.1 requires at least MA 4.8 Update 1 to be installed before deployment.
3 Windows To Go is a feature in Enterprise editions of Windows that allows Windows to boot and run from an external USB hard drive or USB drive. This functionality has not been tested. If you require this functionality, see the Related Information section of this article. This section has instructions on how to submit a product idea. Submitted product ideas are researched for implementation in a future product or update release.
4 Includes support for Microsoft Windows 10 version 1511 (formerly known as November Update or Threshold 2 [TH2]). To review Windows 10 compatibility with McAfee products, see KB85784.
NOTE: Support for Windows 10 requires at least MA 4.8 Update 3 to be installed, before deployment.
5 Support for Microsoft Windows 10 Anniversary Update, requires FRP 5.0.1 Hotfix 1150417 or later.
  • For information about how to upgrade the operating system to Windows 10 Anniversary Update with FRP installed, see KB87550.
  • For information about support for Device Guard and FRP, see KB86009.

Windows 10 Enterprise Long Term Servicing Channel (LTSC) or Long-Term Servicing Branch (LTSB), is only supported with FRP 5.0.3 and later. Before this release, FRP offers support only for official Windows 10 builds, which include Current Branch (CB) and Current Branch for Business (CBB).
NOTES:
7 A minimum Windows 10 Creators Update version 1703 (OS build 15063.250), is required for support with FRP 5.0.3 or later. For more information, see the Microsoft article KB4016240: https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/4016240/windows-10-update-kb4016240
WARNING: Installation or upgrade with earlier builds of Windows 10 Creators Update, fail.

2 With Citrix XenDesktop 7.6, best-effort support is offered only for Windows 2012 R2 server instances.
NOTE: Removable media encryption functionality is not supported for server instances. FRP does not support removable media encryption functionality in server instances in a XenDesktop environment. It does not provide this support because Citrix does not support USB redirection for removable media devices. So, the result is that media appear as a network drive.
