Scripting Question

Answering in a Installation Script

05/04/2016 758 views

I have a problem which needs to be solved :P

My problem is, i wanna install a Programm with a script automaticly on over 250 Clients. But the Setup.exe has some Questions (Yes, No Answers) and i don't know how i can answer these Questions with a script. I searched in some forums and they talked about tools which would cost me (alot) and i would like it to do it for free.

Software is Norton AntiVirus.

you should look for the silent or unnattended installation mode for norton anti virus. At symantec site it should be documentation to perform it.

We can help, tell us more about your software!

Be specific, we need the name of the software and version. from add/remove programs.

Also heads up Norton AntiVirus, this might be hard to deploy silently - we need to extract (hopefully) the MSI and plug your answers into it. The problem is that Norton AntiVirus is not enterprise software, thus is not really made for silent deployments.

Okey, well im trying to install Norton 360. Because of the Version, i can't really say which version it is. I can give you the link where i bought it (Bought before 1 month) http://buy-static.norton.com/norton/ps/bb/3up_ns1_ns_nsbu_ch_de_hybrid_tw_nbfr.html?om_sem_cid=hho_sem_sy:ch:pla:de:l|kw0000438636|55357085318|c&country=CH for my home PC.

Here is the start of my script(Only run the setup.exe)
@echo off

set path="C:\%userprofile%\Desktop\gg\N360


run %path%

I don't really know which information you need. Could you give me more accurate Questions?

You can try AppDeploy to generate and repackage as an .msi

  • I dont recommened using the repackager to create a MSI for AV software, it wont bode well.
    • Can i ask what bod is? Or why dont you recommend it? Do you have an other SW to use if this one is *bad"?

Norton should provide a method (via the management server) to create a silent installation package that can be deployed silently. As is I would get in touch with there support, that is if you have paid support.
As for the other answers, repackaging is not really an option, as there are low-level drivers involved (kernel level) and generally are a right-royal pain in the ar*e.
have you tried to see if it has any installation parameters? (- ? or /?) These should provide you with at least the option of installing silently.

p.s. It would be good to know which version of Norton it is (not just Norton 360)

You can check for any silent switch to make it install silently. If not provided by Norton then you can use AutoIT to automate the installation with desired inputs.
