    Hello all,

    I've got machines that I am going to setup with Windows SteadyState. If you're not familiar, it is similar to systems like "deep freeze" and such that erase any writes to the machine after it is restarted.

    Obviously I want to allow NOD32 to update itself. SteadyState provides the ability to run a user-defined update script on a timer that will unlock the drive and save the changes made during that period to allow the update to complete.

    All I need is a way to trigger a NOD32 automatic update via the command line. I've done some searching and I've found one or two posts that suggest it may not be possible... We don't need it to update from local files or anything, and the machine will be connected to a remote admin server, but I need a command-line based app to trigger from a script that will block until the update is complete.

    Is this possible with NOD32 v4?
