Policy Central v6
One of my schools has been using PCE for a few years and it's been ok apart from the far too many false positives. They are running 22.214.171.124 and I've been told v6 is just around the corner but it needs Java to run so that put me off for a start as I've removed Java from all the clients months ago.
Has anyone tried PCE v6 or is thinking about it? Like a said v5 is ok so don't want to move just because v6 is new and shiny :)
The short answer is: yes
It requires 64bit java if installing onto a 64 bit machine.
But wait there's more!
It also needs
MS Visual C++ Redist for Visual Studio 2013 update (for 64 bit systems it needs the 32 and 64 bit packages installed)
Also you need to make some changes to your firewall settings, your AV and it appears to want to have Full Control perms on a folder sitting on the root of the OS drive which I find a little disconcerting.
I have to roll this out across our network in the near future.
It's the Java requirement that is putting me off so I'm going to hold out on upgrading for as long as I can.
Any idea what has improved in v6 over v5?

The supposed benefits are orbiting around more monitoring functionality and better control systems as to what to ignore, I cannot verify any of this yet though as the swine won't deploy.
It is a real shame because the XP version worked very well, after that it all went downhill.
I will reply to this thread if I manage to get this package running and let you know how it's performing.
