You need to download the latest version of LiveUpdate for Macintosh.


Symantec AntiVirus for Macintosh (SAV) 10.2 includes version 5.0.0 (and Symantec Scheduler 4.0.3). It is not available for download from the Symantec FTP server. If upgrading SAV from 10.1.1 to 10.2, LiveUpdate will update itself. Further updates can be retrieved by telling LiveUpdate to "Update everything now."

You can download the standalone LiveUpdate 4.0.4 updater from the Symantec FTP server to update LiveUpdate 3.5.0 through 4.0.3 (see Technical Information). Click the link for the language of your product:
