Heres an easy Q I can't get an answer for

Is there an msi to deploy McAfee 8.00i via group policy? the package from NAI doesn't have one

I know there was one with AV 4.5 - An I also know McAfee would prefer you use ePO but - does an msi exist for AV8

No it was stopped after 4.5 because of ePO - you need a third party application to create an msi

The answer above is wrong.  Simply navigate to the dir with the setup.exe file via a command prompt, and type setup /a which will launch setup in Admin mode.  Once in that made, it will not install per say, but rather dump a .msi file and a .exe file in there which you can then deploy via Group Policy.  This works with 8.5i, and I believe 8.0 as well.
