Symcdefsx86.exe

Created: 04 Apr 2013 • Updated: 05 Apr 2013 | 6 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Our script downloads the following AntiVirus definition files daily from the Symantec FTP site to our server:

  • Symcdefsx86.exe
  • Symcdefsi64.exe

The scripted failed because the Symcdefsx86.exe file is no longer at the following location on the Symantec FTP site:

ftp://ftp.symantec.com/AVDEFS/symantec_antivirus_corp/static/

However, I see Symcdefsi64.exe and Symcdefsi32.exe in this location.

Did the Symantec stop using the x86 file and switched to i32 file?  Or did they change the location of the x86 file?

I would truly appreciate if you could help me solve this issue.  Thank you very much for your assistance.

The x86 definition update file has been discontinued.

The final x86 certified definition file was posted on March 4th, 2013.

Cameron,

Thank you so much for your quick reply. 

We have the automated flow that copies the x86 definition files to other 32 bit servers and execute it to update the definitions when the LiveUpdate is not properly performing the update.

So... to replace the x86, can we use the i32 file to update the 32 bit servers?

Currently we do not have any supported products that would use the x86 definition file, thus I would not be able to provide any support if using the i32 file will work.

Symantec Antivirus is no longer a supported product and I would recommend speaking with your sales rep to get your environment into a supported configuration.

We use Symantec Endopoint Protection 11 and 12.  Can we use i32 file to update the SEP virus definition on the 32bit servers?

Yes, that file should work to update your 32bit windows servers.
