Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

What error message is popping up? 9 times out of ten your issue is going to be security on the server. 2003 comes a lot more locked down then previous versions.

Who are you logged on as? Administrator? If not you can RUNAS administrator by right clicking on the setup file and choosing RUNAS and then selecting a valid admin account.

I am running Mcafee 8.5.1 on all my servers what version are you trying to run? I have also documented how to “Roll Out” Mcafee 8.5.1 using active directory. This might help as well.

Since you have mentioned the Windows Sever version which is 2003 SP1, there might be a problem with your antivirus software compatibility. To address this, make sure that your antivirus software is compatible with the version of Windows Server you are using. You might be installing another version of Windows Server or the Operating System itself to match their compatibility.

    1. If you have an XML file within your McAfee directory, please update your question which will tell us what build you're trying to install and other important details. Just be sure to null out any serials it automatically applies to the registry (usually they're stored within this XML file).
    2. Do you have all of the prerequisites required to run this software on your system?
    3. What error(s) along with the error(s) code(s), so we can quickly identify the issue.
    4. There are better solutions than Windows Server 2003 and McAfee. Personally, I would run something along the lines of CentOS and just configure the firewall correctly. Better yet, if you're worried about security, I would go with a Hardwall (Hardware based firewall) with SPI/DPI, DPI would be more useful as it does scan packets for more than just what's on the table of previous requests, and legal parameters. I'd go for more than just 3 layers of the OSI.
       - Have a nice day, G0TR00T.

    You said McAfee and Server 2003 in the same sentence - thats your first mistake
    As mentioned, there are server-specific versions of AV/AMW programs available. Sounds almost like you're using a workstation-level product on a server.
