Installing Computer Protection using a clone image

Instructions for installing Computer Protection using a clone image.

Note: The Computer Protection versions lower than 18.14 do not support the clone image installation. For those versions, we recommend either scheduling a task to install Computer Protection at the first start or using another deployment method. This way you can silently have a fresh new installation of Computer Protection without any need to preinstall it.

To install Computer Protection versions 18.14 and higher:

  1. Before installing Computer Protection, you need to turn on the OEM mode as follows:
    1. In a text editor, create a enableOEMMode.cmd file with the following content:
      REG ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\F-Secure\CCF\DLLHoster\100 /v ExitOnStart \
          /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /reg:32 /f || goto error
      REG ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\F-Secure\CCF\DLLHoster\100 /v ExitOnStart \
          /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /reg:64 /f || goto error
      
      @echo Success
      exit /b 0
      
      :error
      @echo Failed to enable OEM mode
      exit /b 1
    2. Run enableOEMMode.cmd with the administrator rights and check that it does not return any errors.

    Note: No messages are shown on the main user interface. The operation was successful if the installer did not fail.

    Note: You can also download the enableOEMMode.cmd file here: https://download.sp.f-secure.com/PSB/latest/enableOEMMode.cmd.

  2. Install Computer Protection with the embedded keycode.

    Note: The keycode can be embedded in the filename, passed into the installer with a --voucher command line, or embedded in the offline MSI. Without an embedded keycode, the product cannot register to PSB.

  3. Before creating the image, you need to turn off the OEM mode as follows:
    1. In a text editor, create a disableOEMMode.cmd file with the following content:
      REG DELETE HKLM\SOFTWARE\F-Secure\CCF\DLLHoster\100 \
          /v ExitOnStart /reg:32 /f || goto error
      rem 64 bit registry may not exist so it should not cause failure
      REG DELETE HKLM\SOFTWARE\F-Secure\CCF\DLLHoster\100 \
          /v ExitOnStart /reg:64 /f
      
      @echo Success
      exit /b 0
      
      :error
      @echo Failed to disable OEM mode
      exit /b 1
    2. Run disableOEMMode.cmd and check that it does not return any errors.

    Note: You can also download the disableOEMMode.cmd file here: https://download.sp.f-secure.com/PSB/latest/disableOEMMode.cmd.

When you restart the computer next time, the product launches, registers to PSB and downloads the updates.
