You want to install the Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0.x or 12.x SBE client software, including TruScan/Proactive Threat Protection, on a system running Windows Server 200x or any 64-bit Windows operating system. Will this feature function normally on these operating systems?


In Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.x and 12.x Small Business Edition, TruScan (also known as Proactive Threat Protection, or PTP) is not compatible with any version of Windows Server operating system. Symantec recommends omitting TruScan/PTP when installing the product on these operating systems; if installed, the product status will be displayed as OFF.

TruScan/Proactive Threat Protection can be installed and run on all 32-bit non-server operating systems such as Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 (x86) and 64-bit Windows XP/Vista/7
