NOTE: Microsoft has paused the rollout of Windows 10 version 1809 (October 2018 Update). McAfee is further testing Windows 10 version 1809 compatible products based on Microsoft update KB4464330. This article will be updated when Microsoft resumes rolling out 1809.

McAfee is committed to supporting the Microsoft release cadence for Windows 10 and is working closely with Microsoft to ensure that McAfee security software and hardware products are fully compatible with Windows 10 endpoints.

To ensure release quality, all new releases that Microsoft publishes for Windows 10 require full validation by the individual product teams. The McAfee goal is to add same-day support for all Windows 10 releases over time, for those products that do not currently offer this cadence.

NOTE: Late-breaking changes implemented by Microsoft to a release, or any unresolved compatibility issues raised by McAfee with Microsoft around a scheduled release, could lead to schedule changes. We will document any changes in this article.

1 SaaS Endpoint Protection 6.0 does not support Microsoft Windows 10.0. If you try to install Windows 10.0 while running SaaS Endpoint Protection 6.0, it asks you to uninstall it.
If you are running SaaS Endpoint Protection 6.0, uninstall it and install ENS 10.0. ENS 10.0 Update 1 supports Windows 10.0.
2 IMPORTANT:
  • Same-day in-place upgrade to Windows 10 is fully supported with DE 7.2.1 and later, by running setup.exe, with no need for scripts or command-line arguments, when setup.exe is initiated from the Microsoft WSUS mechanism.
    • For DE 7.1.3 and 7.2.0 and later, reflect drivers parameter must be used when executing setup.exe directly.
      • For Windows Anniversary Update (Version 1607) only, see KB87909.
      • For Windows 10 Creators Update (Version 1703) and later, see KB89000. If the organization administrator runs the setup.exe directly, setup.exe must include the additional command-line options.
  • In-place upgrade to Windows 10 (versions 1507 and 1511) with DE 7.1 Update 3 (7.1.3) or FRP 5.0.1 installed is supported. But, it requires specific steps be taken as part of the Windows 10 upgrade for it to be successful. For details, see the required article:
    • For detailed instructions and sample scripts that can be tailored to suit the customer environment for DE, see KB84962.
    • For detailed instructions for FRP, see KB87550.
  • DEGO deployment to Windows 10 clients fails. This issue is resolved by installing DE 7.1 Update 3 Hotfix 1087719 (build 7.1.3.554) or later. For details, see KB85514.
3 For information about support for Device Guard with DE and FRP, see KB86009.
4 KB87536 (Incompatibility between the Windows 10 Anniversary Update and multiple McAfee products) has been redirected to this article because KB87536 became obsolete. The Windows 10 Anniversary Update now performs the needed upgrade and installation checks to ensure that no incompatible McAfee product versions can be installed or present. It also blocks the upgrade if they are present.
5 CAUTION: If Device Guard or Credential Guard is enabled on a Windows 10 Creators Update 64-bit system, you must ensure that Microsoft KB4016251 is installed on the system, before you install McAfee products. For more information, see KB89029.
6 A minimum Windows 10 Creators Update Version 1703 (OS build 15063.250) is required for support with FRP 5.0.3. For more information, see the Microsoft article KB4016240 https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/4016240/windows-10-update-kb4016240

CAUTION: Installation or upgrade with earlier builds of Windows 10 Creators Update fails.
7 ePO Deep Command reached End of Life (EOL) on April 10, 2018. See KB88454 for details.
8 MACC 7.0.1 is supported only if Microsoft KB4103722 or KB4103731 or the latest updates are installed before installation.
9 MACC8.0.1 and 8.1.0 are supported only if Microsoft KB4103721 or the latest updates are installed before installation.
