    I had issue upgrading from 14.3 MP1 (14.3.1169.0100) to 3384, no matter how many times I tried installing, at the end it always did a "rollback". I had to run an uninstaller tool (the OS default did not work), but still it didnt go, then I ran "CleanWipe" (newest version), sitll didn't work, then, the "Cloud Endpoint Diagnostic and Removal (CEDAR)" tool, but still, and finally, I ran the "Norton Remove and Reinstall Tool (NRnR)", and then, it finally install, but because it did as "fresh" new installation, I had to setup (customize) all again.

    In my case the "exception" option was good, but on that same tab (Change Settings), as the window (program) size kept the same, I had to scroll down so to get into "Client Management", as there is a new option called "Network Traffic Redirection".

    Hmmm..

    Pasting a bunch of Symantec articles doesn't necessarily invalidate my point.

    I know there are different types of releases (been using SEP ever since if was taken over from Norton).
    But I still feel anything with the word "preview" implies incomplete or not-yet-foolproof.


    PS: I did run it in a VM and also saw the new Network Traffic Redirection feature. But it only works with Win8+ with a configured WSS (Symantec Web Security Service).

    @LostED: Great download matrix!

    @hyperstriker: So the only way to use 3384 is to completely remove the previous SEP ?

    The SEP upgrade patch failure/rollbacks are common, sometimes it took me up to 20 retries. Just execute the full installer and it will upgrade successful every time. Those patches are garbage.

    That's what I've been saying about this preview build !

    So it's an upgrade (like the old SEPtoXXXX.exe files ??
    I'll wait for either a non "preview" version or the next one.

    Seems Broadcom is already making a mess of things wiht the codebase take-over. :(

    Seems symantec added some new features with 3384 :
    - URL reputation , blocks web urls based on their reputation.
    - Network redirection , redirects whole network via Web Security Service (belongs to sym). i Can't activate it for unknown reason.

    and a bad news, sym decided not to store exeptions in registry anymore. So impossible to backup exeptions now...

    No, I did not say and I am not saying that a full uninstall or software removal have to be done in order to install it.

    I quote @Mks1440 who quote @MoMDL, asking about installation issues, "Mks1440" had a similar or a near-to issue as me, on which that had to completely uninstall and re-install the software as a fresh. I said that I ran into an issue, and I am sharing such experience, and I mention the steps that I had to go trough in order to get it fully installed.

    With that, Clearly, I am not saying that it will always going to happen, but that it can happen, as it happened to me, it can happen to any other. You can push to an upgrade and it can work, it can go on fine and don't run into any issue. I am sharing an experience, so in case anyone happen to have similar problem, if it happen, if it may like, it can take it into consideration so to try.

    Probably possted this sometime ago, but thought I'd give it another try.
    I'm running Windows 7 SP1 with Windows Update turned off (I prefer installing updates manually).

    Whenever I try to install the latest version of SEP, I always get this message:
    Symantec Endpoint Protection can only be installed on systems with SHA-2
    code signing support update (KB4474419)

    So far, so good. I get a copy of KB4474419, and it always fails, with this message:
    The following updates were not installed: Security Update for Windows (KB4474419)

    Has anyone experienced this, and if so, is there a workable solution other than moving to Windows 10?

    Symantec Endpoint works fine with Windows 7 SP1. It sounds like you are missing the SHA-2 update. In order to use Windows Update you need to have the SHA-2 update, thus why are you likely experiencing installation issues, as users who install Windows Updates using the "normal" method would already have the SHA-2 update installed.

    In the latest SEP update, Symantec/Broadcom screwed up the "standalone" install of just "network threat protection" from SEP as it continuously expects a person to use url filtering. Lame....

    Their "network threat protection" aka Snort with anti-malware defs on the client is arguably the best part of the whole package and is something missing from many other great anti-malware protects, i.e., Microsoft, Sophos, etc.

    Thus why it's awesome that SEP let a person install just the network threat protection module and not require the rest of the package. Now they need fix the stand alone module. Stupid Broadcom. :(
