    Administrator version is sufficient but not really necessary. The only difference is that you need to transfere two files instead of one when standard version is used..

    How are people/companies supposed to evaluate NOD32 in a QA lab environment, which usually is not connected to the internet, and be able to update the pattern files?

    This is a big minus for NOD32 from the business side of things.

    You can ask the sales department of your local distributor to provide you with an evaluation user/pass for NOD32 administrator version.

    How does the administrator version get the latest pattern file in a lab that is not connected to the internet, as most QA labs are not.
    Thanks,

    well... maybe eset should think about .zip/.exe file definition. cause its important to people who dont have internet connection at home so they can download definition manually from internet cafe or somewhere else. :D about piracy i think eset could think another way to prevent it maybe change from username/password with license key file that includes expired date inside it.

    The administrator version of Nod32 can create an update mirror AND it is possible to create a CD or USB key with the update files. It is a feature of the Administrator Version of NOD32

    Basically, after installing the admin version of NOD32 you will need to perform an update first (by manually clicking the update button if you don't want to wait) before you can configure the mirror. After that you should be able to go right ahead as Marcos described earlier.
    HTH. Let us know if you come across anything else you would like a hand with. :)

    I am using NOD32 in to my Laptop. Now I am working in the site where I am unable to connect my laptop to the internet and no computers having NOD32 installed. I was searching on the internet for NOD32 intelligent update. I am unable to find. Where can I find the intelligent update for NOD32?. I have internet in my office PC.

    Get yourself a wireless card for the laptop, as without one your chance of performing any updates are slim indeed.

    Hai,
    Getting a wireless card is not a problem. My laptop is having wireless lan already. I was trying to connect my laptop with bluetooth, eventhen due to the restrictions it is asking for the administrator access.
    At last I have asked the help from the forum members.
    When I at home I used to run NOD32 UPDATEGENERATOR for my desktop and the update on my laptop.
    Shall I ask the forum members to run the NOD32 UPDATEGENERATOR and post the files on the net?.

    Thanks

    Unforunatelly, NOD32 UPDATEGENERATOR is in my opinion a tool designed almost solely for the purpose of copyright violation.

    And without any connectivity, your chances of getting infected are even lower than that :)

    your kidding right? NOD is, like virtually all other software, pirated on P2P networks and the like. IN this day and age if your the type that wants illegal software, you can find it on the net, including NOD. That is something that will be around all the time, and companies can't only worry about that, or they will go out of business really quick. I bought NOD because after testing out all the others, it was the best for me, but I too find myself wondering why def files aren't allowed to update different setups. You could find yourself with a new virus/worm/whatever, that causes problems on one machine, you disable net access and from another machine, you want to download the definition file that could fix it, but you can't. There are many reasons why it would be a nice added feature for Eset to do, but they choose not to, so be it. Symantec is always an option for those users.

    Hm!
    I have used the Antivir GData. One of the best - but without manuell update, so i use them no more! I need the manuell update, because in my domicile in Wienna i do not have internet, in my company i have them, but here in cannot install any version of NOD, because this firma have about 200 computers in the network and they security policies about install of not oficially alowed software are strong! So - how to solve this problem?

    By Kaspersky can i download the virus signatures separately, so this is in the moment the second soft on my comp. NOD was the best against unknown malware, so i bought them. But - a separately download of updates and signatures i need too.

    Hey XP_1839:
    To update a nod32 with no internet connection, u have to get from an already updated nod32 some files. Go to program files\eset\nod32\updfiles.
    All files in that directory are the files needed and updated when u do the auto update in nod32.
    This should solve ur problem.

    Elie is right, all you need is copy those files and put them to A:\nod_upd or D:\nod_upd, it's all the defination and updates need for stand alone update without any need of internet connection, the point now is: who is gonna provide these files, which is the whole meaning and the question of this thread, not "you can update NOD offline or not".

    What a great thread. Really interesting discussion here. I think ESET should provide manual definitions like they do the paid software, behind a User Name and password system. If all that is needed is the Update Folder files then so be it. Why is this not an option if you can download the paid for version behind the User Name Password system ? Thats all that protects automatic updates too. :rolleyes:
