Multiple McAfee business and enterprise products

Microsoft Windows 10  (ver 1507)
Microsoft Windows 10  (ver 1511) - November Update (aka Threshold 2, 1st Update)

Summary

Intel Security 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 will require full validation by the individual product teams. The Intel Security goal is to add zero day support for all Windows 10 releases over time for those products that do not currently offer this cadence.

NOTE: Any late-breaking changes implemented by Microsoft to a release, or any unresolved compatibility issues raised by Intel Security with Microsoft around a scheduled release, could lead to schedule changes that will be documented and updated in this article.

IMPORTANT:

  • In-place upgrade to Windows 10 with DE 7.1.3 and/or FRP 5.0.1 installed is supported, but requires specific steps to be taken as part of the Windows 10 upgrade for it to be successful. For details, refer to 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 is resolved by installing DE 7.1 Patch 3 Hotfix 1087719 (build 7.1.3.554) or later. For details, see KB85514.
3 For details about FRP 4.3.1 HF1062118, see KB84829. This hotfix is available on the Product Downloads site as a separate item on the FRP 4.3.1 download page.
4 SAE 3.5 Patch 4 HF1076106 adds support for Mozilla Firefox.
5 For information about support for Device Guard with DE and FRP, see KB86009.
6 KB87536 (Incompatibility between the Windows 10 Anniversary Update and multiple McAfee products) has been redirected to this article because KB87536 became obsolete. Windows 10 Anniversary Update now performs the necessary upgrade and installation checks to ensure that no incompatible McAfee product versions can be installed or present, and blocks the upgrade if they are present.
7 McAfee products listed in Creators Update RS2 column are for currently available pre-release versions of the Windows release where some compatibility testing has been completed. However, full support can only be provided once the Windows update has reached General Availability (GA) / Release To World (RTW) status. For details about a support statement for verifying and validating Microsoft patches and monthly updates, see the notes section above.
Every effort will be made to provide Release To Support (RTS) builds to technical support approximately one month prior to a Windows 10 GA/RTW release to allow customers to undertake testing and evaluation with McAfee products.
 
NOTE: Additional information regarding Windows 10 support for McAfee products will use standard Intel Security communication methods including the Support Notification Service (SNS).
