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
