Guest: You want to install using MSI
Webroot: This solution addresses Webroot SecureAnywhere Business – Endpoint Protection

Using MSI for Deployment

The Microsoft Installer (MSI) requires commands during installation, which apply the keycode and options that activate Endpoint Protection installation mode. The MSI installer is interactive by default, and requires the msiexec.exe option /qn to run an automated installation in the background.

This is an example of an MSI command:

msiexec /i wsasme.msi GUILIC=licensekey CMDLINE=SME,quiet /qn /l*v install.log

Note: In User Account Control environments, the account used to run the installer must have local admin rights. You must run the installer from a process that has elevated privileges in UAC environments, to prevent the endpoint user from seeing a UAC prompt.

To remove SecureAnywhere later:

To remove the SecureAnywhere software from the endpoint later, use the standard MSI command:

msiexec /x wsasme.msi /qn /L*v uninstall.log

To use an MSI editor:

If you use your own methods to deploy the SecureAnywhere software on endpoints, see the following table for commands you can pass to msiexec.exe during installation.

The Microsoft Installer (MSI) requires commands during installation, to apply the keycode and options that activate SecureAnywhere Endpoint Protection installation mode:
 
Command Description
CMDLINE SME, quiet
GUILIC The license key, with or without hyphens.

Note: If you don’t provide a keycode the installation proceeds, but the endpoint will not have a keycode associated with it and will not be protected. If you install without a keycode you must uninstall the software and re-install to add it.
ARPNOREMOVE To prevent the uninstallation by end users

You can also modify these commands directly, using an MSI editor such as ORCA:
  • Set the CMDLINE property in the Property table to the appropriate value.
  • Set the GUILIC property in the Property table to your keycode.
  • Set the ARPNOREMOVE property in the Property table to the appropriate value.
