    We have been installing EAV 2.7 using Blackspear's extra settings and a batch file that referenced the setup.exe file, used special switches and a config.xml file.
    How do we do this with the latest version (4.0) that is a single .msi file?
    Thanks in advance.

    If you name the (xml) configuration file 'cfg.xml' and put in the same directory as the installer you only have to call a batch script which executes the following command:

    eav_nt32_enu.msi /qn REBOOT="ReallySuppress"

    /qn = silent install - no user interface .. You can replace this with /qb! (progress bar is shown) or leave it out all together.. Then you will get the normal installation window with settings already filled in from the configuration file.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I don't mean to seem dense but how do I see the full list of switch items for this application? For example, what if I DO wish to force the reboot after install, or reinstall the application, etc.?

    thanks,

    These switches are documented on page 29 in the ERA manual.

    • /qn
    Quiet installation mode – no dialog windows are displayed.
    • /qb!
    No user intervention is possible, but the installation process is indicated by a progress bar in %.
    30
    • REBOOT =”ReallySuppress”
    Suppresses restart after installation of the program.
    • REBOOT =”Force”
    Automatically reboots after installation.
    • REBOOTPROMPT =””
    After installation, a dialog window prompting the user to confirm rebooting is displayed (can’t be used along with
    /qn).
    • ADMINCFG =”path_to_xml_file”
    During installation, parameters defined in the specified.xml files are applied to ESET security products. The
    parameter is not required for remote installation. Installation packages contain their own.xml configuration,
    which is applied automatically.
    • PASSWORD=”password”
    You need to add this paramater when the ESS/EAV settings are password protected.
