It runs on 64bit systems. But I don't know if VSE8.5 maybe also run on a 64bit OS.

I've seen one of my friend using 8.7i on 32bit OS and it works fine
so i don't think its 64bit only ;)

I've been using 8.7i on my main rig, I didn't notice too many differences between 8.5i and 8.7i though.  I did notice however that 8.7i really took up system resources on certain computers (my laptop) especially during start-up or while it autoupdates.  I've uninstalled it since, they fix this in 8.5i?

It adds compatibility with Windows 7, so that will be a big thing once that's officially released (much like how 8.0 wouldn't run in Vista and 8.5 did).

I've been running in on my Win7 machine (64-bit) and haven't had any problems with it yet.

I think you need to have patch 2 for full win 7 compatibility

i'm hoping that by upgrading to 8.7i i'll be able to rejoin my school's network.  they use 8.5i and i had to uninstall it when i upped to win7, of course they never mentioned the two were incompatible.  still need patch 2 though

Good thread.  I was about to ask the same thing.  I run 8.5i on my WinXP box, that I'm about to update to Win7.  I prefer the well patched older Virusscans, so was wondering whether there was any good reason to update to 8.7i.  I guess 8.5i not working on Win7 is a good reason to update!

Well, The major differences between 8.5i and 8.7 are as follows..
Support : VSE 8.5i is not compatible with Windows 7 where as VSE 8.7i is.  It is incorrectly stated in the conversation above that VSE 8.5i is not supported on XP. It sure is supported.

Artemis :- Artemis is integrated both in the On Access Scanner as well as the On Demand Scanner in VSE 8.7i. Unlike VSE 8.5i for which you have to download a special Superdat to enable the Artemis. The Settings can be changed from the Virus Scan Console in VSE 8.7i for the Artemis but that does not hold true for VSE 8.5i.

And Perfromance :- VSE 8.7i is considered a lesser resource hog compared to VSE 8.5i..

I run 8.5i on my WinXP box, that I'm about to update to Win7.I prefer the well patched older Virus scans.This is because the VScan has the option to prevent anyone (including local machine or domain administrators) from disabling VScan processes.

Comparing 8.5 to 8.7 on the same machine , it appears that 8.7 requires more resources.  HOWEVER , 8.5 GOES EOL DECEMBER 2011.  One more year of support maximum  :-\

I have VS8,7i p1 installed on a Win7 64bit system. I got a message that the AntiVirus tool is not fully integrated in Win7. Is this fixed in the later patches?

I think that you need at least Patch 2 for this error... you have latest one Patch 4 at SCF. ;)

Simply browse SCforum.info and you'll find them: http://scforum.info/index.php?action=forum (http://scforum.info/index.php?action=forum)

8.7I seems to be very simular to 8.5I ( setup rules wise ) , of course it runs on Windows 7 and make sure that you apply Patch 4.  That made a significant difference in processor cycles especially when the engine and/or Dat us being updated

i've found out that 8.7i use less resources than 8.5i.
just installed it at celeron 1,8 Ghz (400 fsb) with 512mb of ram and 64mb graphic adapter (yes! very old model of computer) and it run smoothly, not like the 8.5i (with patch 6). is it because the 8.5i's patch that pretty old or because the new engine that makes the 8.7i feel 'faster'? i dont really know.
im using xp sp3 as operating system.
