update live update administrator

Created: 19 Aug 2008 • Updated: 21 May 2010 | 2 comments

Hi Symantec Support,


I have a question regarding updating liveupdate administrator.

I know there is a problem updating liveupdate administrator via the liveupdate on the homepage.

This seems to work perfectly if you are not behind a firewall, however if you are behind a proxy server

this is impossible.


Downloading the latest setup will give you an error that you first need to uninstall the previous version.

Any idea when this will be fixed?


The main reason for me to update liveupdate administrator is because some jobs stay on processing for distribution for ages.

If there is a solution for this to reset this status in the database is also fine for me.


Hope to hear from you soon!

This is addressed in our upcoming release version 2.2

I would encourage signing up for the Preview

Hi Eoghan,


I de-installed and manually upgraded to since

I don't want to be the test engineer for Symantec.


I'll wait for the final Release of 2.2
