Silent installation of Client Security

Hi.


I want to make the installation of F-Secure Client Security 9.01 silent(just exec an .exe or .msi)

Is there a way to do this for standalone installations? Creating an MSI or similar.

 

Thanks

Re: Silent installation of Client Security

Hi,

 

If you need a completely silent installation, use ilaunchr.exe together with a Policy Manager Console exported jar file.
To make the installation standalone, include a base policy file into the exported JAR package. Make sure, the following setting is enabled indicating a standalone installation:

F-Secure Management Agent > Settings > Communications > Host Configuration mode
-> Standalone

To start the installation, use Ilaunchr.exe which is available on the computer running with Policy Manager Console.

ilaunchr /Q /C /F /U /J<name of exported jar file>

 

/Q is the key here, hiding the normal installation dialog.

The *.exe installer cannot be silenced and as the MSI package currently act as a wrapper for a JAR-file, even if you try something similar to msiexec /qn /i <msi-package> this will still show our normal "installing ..." dialog because the underlying jar-installer command line is hard coded.

Hope this helps!

Best Regards,
Peter

Re: Silent installation of Client Security

Thanks for the reply Peter but is there no way of doing this since I don't have the Policy Manager Console.

I read about prodsett.ini but someone said it's not used anymore.

Re: Silent installation of Client Security

Hi,

 

Not aware of alternative solutions here. Policy Manager is available for download here and requires no key code to install.
Installation takes about 5-10 minutes and works even on top of a workstation OS like XP or Win 7.

And if you need help with anything related, just open a support ticket or give us a call Smiley Happy
