Unable to install McAfee Endpoint Security

hi experts,

 I have a few computers on which I had no problems installing the McAfee Endpoint Protection but on two computers i'm getting error message:

McAfee Enpoint Security doesn't work on this version of Windows. An update app may be available.

all computers are on Windows 10 Pro 64-bit.

Anyone seen this and knows the workaround?

Windows Creators update ver 1703 is almost new version so you also need the latest  version of McAfee Endpoint Security,
Did you check their website for latest version of McAfee Endpoint Security Aplication  ?
It seems that McAfee is having a few issues with Windows 10. See this article:


... and in particular the footnotes a little over halfway down the page.

Make sure you are using the latest version of McAfee Endpoint Security or download the latest version.

Type Winver in run command and post the version. something like 1607
if your version is 1607 then you need the latest version of McAfee Endpoint Security.
