I am using Orca and would like to change the windowsdefender.msi to configure default options for deployment using SMS...
I particular, was interested in setting the default actions to either remove or quarantine? Also, would like to know where the scan frequency, time, and type are set in the msi to change if necessary... Finally, would like to know where the Admin options are configured...

Of course, you mean you're using Orca to create a transform for the MSI...? The general rule is to never, EVER edit vendor-supplied MSIs unless you absolutely have to (not a situation I've come acrosss yet): always, ALWAYS use a transform. This counts double (at the very least) for Microsoft and Adobe MSIs, so much so that these vendors supply tools to create transforms for their more........challenging products. For Adobe, that means 'All'...LOL

That was the first place I looked before posting this question... I got Win Defender to push through SMS but am now looking to set some of the tool options so that our users will have little to no interaction with the program...
Thanks,

See my "Monitor MSI installation actions in real time" comment at http://juice.altiris.com/article/1358/troubleshooting-wise-packages-with-windows-installer-log-files to find out which properties are changed during UI option selection if the Package KB or any forum posts isn't enuf for you.

I'm afraid I don't have any reference details handy. You can think of a transform as a delta on the main database (which is what an MSI is). The idea is that the MSI remains unolested and any changes or additions are made via a transform file.

It sounds like you're new to packaging. As such, I'd thoroughly recommened that you obtain a better authoring tool. Orca has its place (generally - waits for Orcaphile flames - it's used for quick edits) but you'll find it painful to do anything major with it.
