2 Norton products w/different Live Update versions

I have two Norton products installed (Ghost 15 [sp1] and NAV 2011 [18-6-0-29]).

Am I supposed to see a different version of Live Update when I manually run it from each?

sorry, of course I can.  In this jpeg:

When I manually run "Live Update" from Ghost I get the jpeg's upper "Live Update", which 'sees' and updates only Ghost.

When I manually run "Live Update" from NAV I get the jpeg's lower "Live Update", which 'sees' and updates only NAV.

Is this normal?

Ghost's "Live Update" seems like an older version.  A few years ago on another machine, when I installed both Ghost and NAV, IIRC after I installed NAV, it's "Live Update" was the one that launched from either and it updated both programs at once.  Which seemed understandable since after I install both programs I get these three folders:

C:\Program Files\Norton AntiVirus

C:\Program Files\Norton Ghost

C:\Program Files\Symantec\LiveUpdate

I hope that was less cryptic, thank you!

Hi coyote2,

LiveUpdate used to be a standalone program for all Symantec products.  It would appear in Windows Add/Remove Programs as an application separate from the main Norton program.  I think it was in 2009 that LiveUpdate was integrated completely into Norton products like Norton Internet Security.  So, yes if you have an older product it will still use the standalone LiveUpdate application, while newer products will use their own LiveUpdate component.
