Install a newer version release (i.e. RU7) for Windows 7 64-bit
I'm trying to work out something that will allow me to install Symantec EPP v11.0 on Windows 7 64-bit version and communicate well with the manager installed on the server (Windows 2003). We are currently using EPP on Windows XP and 7 32-bit clients with little issues. We're rolling out some new PC's with 8GB RAM thus Windows 64-bit is inevitable. We have a 32-bit installation package but none yet so far for 64-bit. As this is yet on initial stage, I'm trying out several options.
One of this is by installing the client as unmanaged and later convert it to managed version by importing the correct Sylink file. I tried it on releases RU2, RU4 and RU7 with some success. The clients can get updates and access to the interface is password-secured. The only issue is that the 'Disable Endpoint Protection' is enabled to the user. We've got this option disabled on the server.
I'll appreciate your insigths on this issue.
