  • General discussion

  • Installing Windows Security Essentials (WSE) Beta on Windows Home Server is not supported at this time. As WSE is in Beta, the Windows Home Server team is in the process of ensuring the use of WSE with Windows Home Server will meet customer expectations. We will release a statement of support once the validation is complete, when we are confident that this combination will meet customer expectations.

    Ya.. but it irks me when I see someone from MS using the wrong name for something - as does their sometimes poorly thought out naming conventions in general. :)

  • I am in the MSE Beta and here is the notice I got below...pay special attention to the last sentence (I have it bolded and underlined) it says "the next Windows Home Server update rollup currently scheduled to occur on or about September 1, 2010" So does this mean there will possible be a Power Pack 4 with MSE Beta support in it?

    Dear Beta User,

    Thank you for joining the Microsoft® Security Essentials Beta. We are confident that you’ll find Microsoft Security Essentials to be easy to install and use.

    The Microsoft Security Essentials Beta is a fully functional anti-malware application with ongoing updates to help protect your PC from viruses, spyware and other malicious software throughout the course of the beta. In addition to ongoing virus and spyware definition updates, we will be providing software updates to the beta for download through Microsoft Update on a periodic basis. To have these updates installed automatically, you must be subscribed to Microsoft Update with preferences set to automatically download and install new updates. Learn more about automatic updates through Microsoft Update.

    Here are some important links that will help you get the most out of your Microsoft Security Essentials beta experience:

    · Microsoft Security Essentials beta website

    · System requirements

    · Help and support

    · Suggestions and bug reporting

    Over the course of the beta, you will receive additional emails from Microsoft inviting you to participate in optional surveys. These surveys let you provide us with important feedback that will help improve future versions of the product. Your participation makes a difference!

    At the end of the beta, participants who are subscribed to automatic updates through Microsoft Update will be upgraded to the released version of Microsoft Security Essentials. Instructions for manually upgrading to the released version will be included in an email you will receive at the end of the beta period. Please note that to continue receiving technical support, you will need to upgrade or install the final version of Microsoft Security Essentials once it is released.

    Notice to Windows® Home Server customers: Microsoft Security Essentials Beta is not supported on Windows Home Server (WHS). Beta testers who have installed Microsoft Security Essentials Beta on WHS should consider uninstalling Microsoft Security Essentials Beta to avoid potential incompatibility problems. Those who plan to beta test Microsoft Security Essentials Beta unsupported on WHS should wait until the next Windows Home Server update rollup currently scheduled to occur on or about September 1, 2010

    Thanks again for participating in the Microsoft Security Essentials Beta.

    Best regards,

    The Microsoft Security Essentials Team

  • I believe the update will be called "Update Rollup 1" or UR1, rather than Power Pack 4. But in any case, I'm pretty sure it's this update, announced (with no fanfare at all :) ) last week, and available through Windows Update (only) on the 24th.

    This is not a beta.


    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • I don't think "update rollup" means service pack.
     
    See:
     
    "An update for Windows Home Server is available through Windows Update on August 24, 2010.
    This update contains fixes to some issues that were found since the release of Windows
    Home Server Power Pack 3."
