    We are using the latest version of Windows Steadystate (v2.5) to lock down some public use computers at our office.

    In order for NOD32's antivirus definition updates to succesfully complete, we need to be able to run the updates from the command-line. We tried the Snipped[/] method with the same negative results as other users in this forum.

    Is there a specific reason that ESET is blocking people from updating the definitions from the command line, is it just an oversite on their part, or am I just missing something?

    I know that this question has been asked on this forum before, but I thought I should raise awareness of this issue. If I can't get it resolved, we won't be purchasing ESET NOD32 for our public machines.

    Snipped: undocumented command removed

    A script for SteadyState 2.5 is being tested and will be available later. It will require EAV/ESS 4.0.445 or newer, the current release version is 4.0.437.

    Thanks for the quick response!

    Do you have a rough time estimate on when the script will be ready?

    Just incase anyone cares, we managed to get it working with this script:

    Code:
    Option Explicit
    
    On Error Resume Next
    
    
    Dim sNOD32Path, oShell, strComputer, oWMIService, ColProcesses
    
    Set oShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    
    
    sNOD32Path = oShell.RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ESET\ESET Security\CurrentVersion\Info\InstallDir")
    
    
    call oShell.Run(chr(34) & sNOD32Path\ecmd.exe /update, 0, True)
    
    
    Wscript.Sleep(300000)
    I'm guessing the sleep window could be trimmed down considerable, but who gives a crap.

    I'm using Windows SteadyState 2.5 with (Windows Disk Protection turned on) on a Windows XP SP3 machine with ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4.2.35.0 and could use a "Custom Script" to update NOD32 automatically (without me having to turn off WDP then back on again just to update it)- see screenshot

    How can I implement this? Is there a KB article avaliable for this now?

    (There are references to this issue in this thread as well, and it doesn't seem to have been resolved yet either.)

    Uhh...anyone with a solution to this? I'm not exactly sure how the script SmackyTheFrog has posted would be implemeted in Windows Steadystate to do the updates and was kind of expecting the KB to be out by now (it's been like more than 6 months since Marco's post)- a search on the knowledgebase for "Windows Steadystate" doesn't show up anything related?

    Hope to read updates regarding on scripts that will allow NOD32 to download and then retain the updates in it's disk even the Windows SteadyState protection is on.

    The OP didn't say what OS you are using, but I recently read that MS doesn't have Steadystate available for Win 7 and doesn't plan to implement it in that OS.
