VirusScan Enterprise events are not parsed after removing MSXML4 and migrating to MSXML6 on the ePolicy Orchestrator server

McAfee VirusScan Enterprise (VSE) 8.8 with/without Patches 1-9

For details of VSE supported environments, see KB51111.


After migrating from MSXML4 to MSXML6 on the ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) server, the VSE reporting extension fails to allow events to be parsed from the VSE clients because MSXML4 is no longer supported by Microsoft due to a security vulnerability.

No events appear on the Threat Events page.


MSXML 4 is not required by ePO, but is included to provide legacy support for some older point product extensions. After these extensions are retired, ePO will no longer require MSXML 4 and it will no longer be included in future versions of ePO.


VSE 8.8 Patch 10 and later will support MSXML 6.0.
