Minimal modules installation

To reduce network traffic related to the size of the installer and save resources, ESET product comes with a minimal modules installer. The installer contains only essential modules, and all other modules will download during the initial module update after product activation. The main advantage is to have a significantly smaller installer, and ESET Endpoint Antivirus downloads only the latest application modules when you activate the product.

The minimal module installer still contains the following modules:

  • Loaders
  • Direct Cloud communication
  • Translation support
  • Configuration
  • SSL

After the product activation, you will see the Initializing protection status that informs you about features initializing.



In case of a problem with module downloads (for example, proxy settings, no network, etc.), a warning application status Attention required is displayed. In the main program window, click Update > Check for updates to start the process again.


After several unsuccessful attempts, a red application status Protection setup failed is displayed. Click Try again to start the protection setup again. If the initialization process fails and you are still unable to download modules, download full MSI installers.




If your client computers do not have an internet connection or work offline and need updates, use the following methods to download update files from ESET update servers:
