So I can install the software but I have not had any luck doing so silently. The command that I used to install it is:

"symredistributable.exe"

Looking on symantec's website it looks like all I would have to do is add -silent at the end

"symredistributable.exe -silent"

no luck.

I am pretty new to this software distribution but I have succesfully done both office 2010 & 2013. Any pointers or help that you can provide would be greately appriciated.

  • I have the same issue. Seems like it has something to due with the admin rights and the way KACE is applying the switch. I can run it fine via a command window if i open CMD with the right-click, run as option.
  • anyone know how to fix this?
  • try SymRedistributable.exe -silent suppresswarnings
  • According to my ticket I put in for the same issue, it cannot be done truly silent:

    Case comment:Hello Jason,

    Symantec Endpoint Protection.cloud deployment cannot be done without user interaction, even with 3rd party software.

    Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

I was able to figure this one out today... as it turns out you can only run the -silent switch from a windows Start > Run command (instead of cmd.exe).  That said, I created a batch file that resides in the same folder as SymRedistributable.exe  

@ECHO off

start "" %~p0SymRedistributable.exe -silent

The start "" will call the windows Start (running the installer in the System32 folder) and the %~p0 will provide the path of the batch file (which should be the same path as your .exe if you have them in the same folder).

I hope this helps you.
