Hi,

are you talking about McAfee VirusScan 8.8?
If so, then yes, you can. It is supported even on Windows 2000, as per McAfee article:
https://kc.mcafee.com/resources/sites/MCAFEE/content/live/PRODUCT_DOCUMENTATION/22000/PD22944/en_US/vse_880_installation_guide_en-us.pdf

Check page 9.

Regards,
Ivan.

per the information below, it seems to be a policy issue, at least not fully a technical issue.
IMPORTANT: Windows XP and Windows 2003 are NOT supported. Patch 7 is the last patch that can install on these systems. Only customers with extended support contracts are permitted to use the product on Windows XP / Windows 2003. Refer to your extended support contract for details.
so in my understanding, technically you can, but not officially supported.

FYI

Supported platforms, environments, and operating systems for VirusScan Enterprise
