Version 10 latest build

Created: 07 Mar 2008 • Updated: 21 May 2010 | 5 comments
What is the latest build of Symantec AV version 10? I know there's SEP 11 but I don't plan to use it until much later. My serial allows me to download version 10.2. Product documentation says that if the OS isn't Vista, SAV 10.1.6 will be installed.
 
I'm seeing SAV 10.1.7 in this forum so I'm thinking perhaps there are newer builds. How do I get the latest build for version10 (for Win2003, XP and 2000)?
 
https://fileconnect.symantec.com only lets me download 10.2
 
Thanks.

When I login, I see '10.1' at the bottom of the list.  Looking to the right under the heading "Full Version" it says 10.1.7.

I just logged back in to https://fileconnect.symantec.com/
 
Indeed it says 10.1.7 (version 10.1.7.7000 to be exact).  I should've looked more carefully.
 
What confuses me is the article below:
 
About Symantec AntiVirus 10.2 for Windows Vista
 
says:

The Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition 10.2 CD includes the following:
  • Symantec AntiVirus 10.2 client for Vista
  • Symantec AntiVirus 10.1.6 for Windows 2003/XP/2000 and Netware
  • Symantec AntiVirus 1.0.x for Linux
Notes on the bottom:
 
If you install Symantec AntiVirus 10.2 to a computer that does not run Windows Vista, Symantec AntiVirus 10.1.6 is installed.
 
I don't have any Vista machines. I'll get 10.1.7 (MR 7) instead of 10.2.

The combined ZIP file that has SAV 10.2 {For vista}, was last updated to also include 10.1.6 {For XP/2000/2003 etc}

This combined ZIP has not been updated to include 10.1.7 with 10.2 last time I checked

The current version of SAV 10.x {For XP/2000/2003 etc} is 10.1.7

Thanks for your reply. I have another question to ask. SAV version 9.0.2 and 9.0.5 uses the same scan engine as SAV version 10.1.7.7000. As seen in SSC the scan engine is version 71.4.0.15 for both SAV 9 and 10.
 
Is this normal?

My guess is that since Symantec updates multiple versions of the product (meaning that even though SEP 11 is out they still come out with updates to sav 10) that they may use the same version  of the scan engine in both, that's a guess though...
