When you install LiveUpdate Administrator, the installation folder, temporary folder, and download folder cannot be empty. Also, the root drive (such as C:\ or D:\) must use a subfolder that does not contain other files. The subfolder should use a local path, as network paths are not allowed.

  • Removing old product versions from the Symantec Product Catalog

LiveUpdate Administrator now removes old, unsupported versions of products from the Symantec Product Catalog and the Distribution Centers. After Symantec no longer supports a specific version, LiveUpdate Administrator removes the older versions based on the purge schedule for updates. You can change the purge schedule on the Configure > Preferences tab.
