Public
DCE 5.32 and DCT 948 and later were uploaded to the Activeupdate server. Initiate an update using the Officescan server if you are using an old version.
To update the tsc.ini, do the following:
  1. Go to the Officescan server (pccsrv\admin folder).
  2. Delete ..\PCCSRV\Download\hotfixnt.txt file.
  3. Rename the tsc.ini file to "tsc.ini_old".
  4. Download the tsc.ini file and then copy it to the ..\PCCSRV\admin folder.
  5. Open the file and save it. Check the timestamp of the file. It should reflect the date today.  
  6. Open the ..\PCCSRV\Autopcc.cfg\apnt.ini file.
  7. Look for the "admin\Tsc.ini" line. If it does not exist, add it.  
  8. Save and close the file.
  9. Wait 2-3 minutes and the hotfixnt.txt will be automatically generated.  
  10. The Officescan server will now notify the officescan clients and deploy the tsc.ini file.
  11. If hotfixnt.txt was not automatically generated, please restart the Officescan master service. 
Note:
  • OfficeScan 8.0 does not require any hotfixes to enable GeneriClean.
