The scenario was slightly different as they were talking about e Pos but the theory must be the same So I copied the file from another PC onto this PC in this folder This sorted the problem!
Not sure why the file didn’t get created in the first place I’ve talked plenty of times on here about how fed up with Mc Afee i am.
I went back on Tuesday just to finish off and came across a bit of a weird problem This particular PC didn’t have any anti-virus loads so i installed Virus Scan 8 I configured it to point to a share to check for definition updates and fired it up and got this My initial thought was that i’d enter the UNC details wrong so i checked that and it was fine.
I then realised that if i’d entered the UNC wrong it would have fallen back to the HTTP or FTP repository….something else was going on here!
The updater was having a problem reading the settings I’d put in so was defaulting to the sitelist it previously had.
