Upgrade Clients to the Latest Version

Updated builds (version 6.6.2046.0 and later) of ESET endpoint products are available from the ESET Remote Administrator repository and the ESET download page

Known Issues

See our Knowledgebase article for known issues in ESET endpoint products.
Endpoint v6.6 can update only from a mirror created by another Endpoint v6.6. Older versions or products do not create a mirror compatible with this version. We strongly recommend using an HTTP Proxy to cache update files in network environments.
A new version of the Mirror tool that will also support creation of a v6.6-compatible mirror is in the works.

Support Resources

ESET provides support in the form of User Guides, fully localized application and online help, online Knowledgebase, and applicable to your region, chat, email or phone support.
