    Hi,

    I could not install Trend Micro 7.0 onto Windows Vista. Trend Micro
    previously works fine on Windows Xp & Windows 2k.


    Thanks in advance.

    Regards,
    Hong jin

    The version of Trend AV that works on Vista is 2007. Are you trying to use
    OfficeScan 7.0? It has not been tested or developed or Vista. There are
    enough changes under the hood to make it likely that it won't work.

    Just because it worked in XP and Win2k doesn't mean it's Vista compatible.
    None of the XP AV programs are. Trend has a new Vista compatible version.

    Not true. eTrust AV works just fine.

    The XP version without any changes for Vista worked fine in Vista? I
    recollect it didn't.

    It did not. It was updated very early on for Vista because it is what
    Microsoft uses internally.

  7. Trend's corporate versions will not be "Vista" ready until prob
    June-ish. They have a beta. PcCillian 2007 is the only Trend version
    that supports Vista at this time.

    Is anyone aware of an up-to-date table that lists which AV programs are Vista
    ready, and which run on 64-bit? There was a list about a year ago but it has
    not been updated for quite some time.

    I gathered this information on Thursday but I'm not going to say my list
    is totally complete:

    http://www.elephantboycomputers.com/page3.html#2-15-07

    It's under Item #2. Since this was for an email report I send out to
    clients, my comments are subjective.

    A little buried but still good. I think we should create a page that is kept
    up to date with this info. I can host it or you can.

    How's this? If I've left something out or you want something else, email
    me. I think you can get my address from the MS MVP site, yes?

    Looks good. We need to figure out the 64-bit stuff too. Let me dig a little...

    I'm not an MVP, so, no, I can't get your e-mail from there. You can e-mail
    me easily from my blog: http://msinfluentials.com/blogs/jesper/

    I have 7.3 partially working. It is able to detect and remove virii.
    Update Now and the firewall (we don't use firewalls on individual
    workstations) don't work. To get rid of the annoying incompatable
    popups I set group policy to disable application compatibility
    checking. Anyone have any ideas on getting the update feature working?
    I need to make sure I can get updates before I start assigning Vista
    workstations to people for testing.
