Minimal modules installation

To reduce network traffic related to the size of the installer and save the resources, ESET comes with a minimal modules installer. The installer contains only essential modules, and all other modules will download during the initial module update after the 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
  • Anti-Stealth support module
  • Direct Cloud communication module
  • Translation support module
  • Configuration module
  • SSL module

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

In case of a problem with module downloads (e.g. 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 updating process again.

After several unsuccessful attempts, a red application status Protection setup failed is displayed.
