Symantec 32 bit deploy to Windows 7 64 bit client

Created: 09 Feb 2010 • Updated: 21 May 2010 | 3 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

We have Symantec Corporate Edition deployed on the client workstations in our office.  We recently upgraded one of these workstations to Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit and would like to reinstall the antivirus software.  Is this version of Symantec compatible with Windows 7 64 bit?  Can we run it in compatibility mode (Windows 7 website advises against running AV in compatibility mode)?
