Looking for silent install and key commands.

Also, where does it download the installation package to?

  • I'm not familiar with the Webroot software but does it come as a package or just an application? If it comes as a package then you can normally install it silently using the command line. If it's an application then you can copy it to /Applications like normal.
  • .dmg

DMG files are like ISO files in windows. It just mounts the package. Open it and let us know what is inside. If it is .app or .pkg we can help you.

  • The command to install a .pkg from terminal is:
    installer -pkg nameofpackage.pkg -target /

    If you have a tool like Apple Remote Desktop you can push the package file to the computers and it should install silently. If you are using a K1000 for managed installs then you can also have it push the software.
    • and the target would be the applications "Folder"? Then I need it to run and apply the license key. How do I do that?
      • The taget is / meaning the root of the computer. Most files will probably end up in the Applications folder but there may also be files in other locations like /Library. Applying the license will vary by product and I'm not familiar with this one. If you're lucky then it places a file on the drive that you can just copy to other machines. I would suggest contacting the company to ask about silent options for applying the license.
