Sure thing

What version of the software are you running ?

Is it managed by ePO or is it standalone

OK, you need to create an AutoUpdate Task in ePO at the top level

This will then filter down to the clients

You should run a Repository Pull task before the Client Update task

I normally schedule the Repository Update Task to run at 6pm GMT and then the AutoUpdate Task to run at 7pm with a tick in the box for Run Missed Tasks as soon as possible

That way, any clients switched off will run the task as soon as they are switched on

What version of ePO are you running ?  I presume 3.6 ?

Let me know if you need more

Morning....

What do you mean by the problem was with the license ?

ePO and VSE do not have a license element that prevents them from downloading

You have a Grant Number from McAfee and that allows you to download the software, but at no point do you enter a licence file anywhere, so that cannot be the problem

You asked how to schedule an update in McAfee and I told you how......

You say the problem was with the license, sorry, but that's not technically possible.
