System Currently running the following:-
Vista Home Premium with all the latest patches and upgrades except SP1.- ZA Free 7.1.078 for Vista- McAfee Virus Scan (not Security Suite): 8.1.173 Security Centre, 12.1.110 VirusScan 2.6.2653 Site Advisor (updated to today's signatures)All this running on a Toshiba Laptop P200-FT9.
I received a notice from ZA that there was an update.
I downloaded the upgrade file for 7.1.248.
Now here is where the problem begins.
When I run this upgrade, I first get a notice that this update is required prior to upgrading for Vista SP1.
I click OK to install.
The installation stops shortly afterwards indicating that this version of ZA free is incompatible with this version of McAfee and aborts the installation.
My current installation runs without issue and have configured Windows update to not automatically update to SP1.
I am in no rush to install SP1 (hear there are some issues), I
am not willing to unistall McAfee (especially when I only have the virusscan version) and
have no desire to run beta versions of ZA free.
However at some point it may be necessary to move to SP1.
So my question is, is there a workaround to this problem or is this problem being worked on.
I have using ZA Free and McAfee since 2000 with Win98SE and WinXP without problems and without compatibility problems.
So this little problem is unacceptable.
