WPS 8 and merge modules


Recently upgraded to WPS 8.0 from 7.0 SP3. Did a rebuild of the packaging machine and a clean install of WPS, only problem is that I'm unable to download the redistributables either in application or via symantec's website (that site is a mess).

Anyone know if Wise / Symantec actually have a v8 release of the merge modules i.e. wpsmodules.exe or where i might get them from?

Have sent an email through to their tech support however not having a support agreement most likely means either no response or X days wait for reply.

Any help / advice appreciated.

Its looking as though others have asked this question on symantec's forum with no reply other that create your own mm's.

Why is it that Symantec buy good products and kill them off?

MMs don't care what version of the host app is in use, since they're just a collection of tables. Just restore the MMs you used for v7 (you took a back-up, right? Or you still have a workstation that you haven't yet upgraded, because you tested v8 on at least one first?)

No offence but IMV, anyone who stumped for v8 licenses deserves everything they get. Wise is clearly dead in the water and has been for a while. I prefer WPS over IS but their abject abandonment of any meaningful keeping pace with technology means that use of their product is indefensible. Symantec bought Altiris for the deployment technology, nothing else. They'll be selling off Wise soon. You heard it here first.

i am not sure about version 8 but all previous versions of wise botched the implementation of mm's during recaptures and break the very thing they were designed to fix ni the first place.

I would suggest testing v8 with mm's if your intention is to use them with setup capture.
