Standalone installation

Windows client users can simply install the .msi directly. Mac client users have an option of installing MNE on the client systems using the MNE-4.0.0.xxx.dmg package, which is provided by the administrator to client users along with user credentials. The standalone installer also installs or upgrades the older version of McAfee Agent to 4.8 Patch 3 for Mac OS X on the system. Users can also configure client systems remotely into the McAfee ePO server using the McAfee ePO Remote Provisioning Tool. The McAfee ePO Remote Provisioning Tool works with McAfee Agent 4.8 Patch 3 and 5.0 for Mac OS X.
