Summary

This article discusses the recommended syntax to install the Officescan client using an MSI package in silent mode.

This procedure is useful when an administrator would like to quickly install an OfficeScan Agent/Client MSI package using the Windows Installer (msiexec.exe) without any prompts and without the need for a reboot after the installation. This will also enable the Windows installer to create a detailed log of the installation process.

For more information on how to create an agent/client installation package in MSI, refer to the Officescan Admin Guide from the Online Help Center.

To silently install the OfficeScan Agent/Client MSI package using the Windows Installer, run the following in the command prompt or Start window on the target computer:

msiexec /i <location and file name of the Officescan Agent/Client MSI package> /quiet /norestart /lv <log location and log name>

Example:

msiexec /i C:\OfficeScan.msi /quiet /norestart /lv C:\OfficeScan.log

Where:

/i - install the specified package< br\> C:\OfficeScan.msi -  the target location and filename of the MSI package< br\> /quiet -  Quiet mode, no user interaction< br\> /norestart - Do not restart after the installation is complete< br\> /lv - create a log file in verbose mode< br\> C:\OfficeScan.log - the log file that will be created and its target location

The Windows Installer (MSIExec) switches above can be modified as needed. To get a list of available commands for the Windows Installer in the target computer:

  1. Open a command prompt.
  2. Execute the following command:

    msiexec.exe

  3. Press ENTER. This will open the Windows Installer's list of switches and functions.
