What works

Virus scan (apparently).

What does not

  • Installer hangs at the end and has to be killed.
  • Probably due to installer hanging, a file is missing, but can be copied from one folder to the other.
  • Anything that relies on an NT service to be started (such as realtime scanning).
  • Uninstaller, probably because the install does not finish correctly.
  • The original LiveUpdate hangs when trying to download updates.  Updated to 1.8 and it downloads updates, but apparently exits without updating the virus definitions (this needs to be tested further).
  • LiveUpdate fails to retrieve updates through a Squid proxy.
  • Virus scan failed to detect the EICAR Test.

HowTo / Notes


The installer will hang at the end and will need to be killed.

Following the installer, ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Navnt/S32STAT.DLL needs to be copied to ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Symantec

A newer version of LiveUpdate then needs to be installed.
