Possible to install NIS on El Capitan with NIS 5.7 Installer?

I just updated to El Capitan this morning.

I then downloaded the NIS installer from Comcast.

Problem is, the NIS installer available from Comcast is v. 5.7, which is incompatible with El Capitan.

When I try to install it, I get an error message, saying the installation failed, because it's not compatible with El Capitan.

I was hoping to install v. 5.7, then have it automatically update to v. 5.8. However, since the installation of v. 5.7 fails, this is not possible.

I contacted Comcast. They said they don't yet have v. 5.8 available for download on their website. Fingers crossed they have it available soon, if at all.

Any word on whether or when Comcast will make v. 5.8 available?

Note that I did not install NIS before upgrading to El Capitan. Had I done so, I know I could have upgraded to NIS 5.8 via LiveUpdate. However, since I didn't do that, I can't even install LiveUpdate.

Any suggestions?

Comcast has updated the installer to v. 5.8 (though they still need to update the system requirements, to show that it's compatible with Mac OS 10.11), so the problem is solved.

Thanks for your notification: "updated the installer to v. 5.8" - therefore reduced the spent-time for "liv-update" of NIS installer.

This morning, I tried to re-install it on my El Capital - OS X environment. Yes, I COULD install the NIS for Mac V5.8(32?).

But, I found that major application on NIS for Mac V5.8 are "BROKEN icons" shown as the attached file.

Please advise us (users) how to reach the right figure of NIS for Mac V5.8 application .

It's past one day from my last relying.  

Since I really would like to complete the NIS for Mac V5.8 installation - in order to enjoy the new OS X ( El Capital) world.

Again and again, I repeat the NIS V5.8 Installation with the help mail ( that includes the Good Botton ( Right Now Install - NIS ) from Norton team though I was disappointed a little with the result figure ( Broken icon of NIS ).

 1) Retrying - 1st time  - Figure 1

     Two icon only appeared - "Liveupdate"   and "Uninstall"

 2) Retrying  - 2nd time - Figure 2

    Spring has come to me on this issue-solving  - Full icons are shown in the "Symantec Solutions " like regular normal installation

Thanks a lot.
