Enter the executable to be run after the Update has completed

Specify an executable file to start after the AutoUpdate task finishes running. Specify the path to the executable you want to run, or click Browse to locate it.

For example, you can start a network message utility that notifies the administrator that the AutoUpdate task completed successfully.

Note: The program file that you specify must be executable by the currently logged on user. If the currently logged on user does not have access to the folder containing the program files, or if there is no currently logged on user, the program does not run.
Only run after successful update

Run the executable program only after a successful update. If the update is not successful, the program you specified does not run.

Schedule

Define the schedule for this update task.

Note:

See Scheduling Tasks for more information.

We do not recommend that you schedule an AutoUpdate task and a mirror task to run at the same time. Both tasks use the McAfee Common Framework service, consequently running both tasks at the same time may result in a conflict.

Update Now

Perform the AutoUpdate task immediately.
