Command line installation

The following settings are intended for use only with the reduced, basic and none level of the user interface. See documentation exlink for the msiexec version used for the appropriate command line switches.

Supported parameters:

APPDIR=<path>

path - Valid directory path

Application installation directory

For example: efsw_nt64.msi /qn APPDIR=C:\ESET\ ADDLOCAL=DocumentProtection

APPDATADIR=<path>

path - Valid directory path

Application Data installation directory

MODULEDIR=<path>

path - Valid directory path

Module installation directory

ADDLOCAL=<list>

Component installation - list of non-mandatory features to be installed locally.

Usage with ESET .msi packages: efsw_nt64.msi /qn ADDLOCAL=<list>

For more information about the ADDLOCAL property see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows/desktop/Msi/addlocal exlink

The ADDLOCAL list is a comma-separated list of all feature that will be installed.

When selecting a feature to be installed, the full path (all parent features) must be explicitly included in the list.

REMOVE=<list>

Component installation - parent feature you do not want to have installed locally.

Usage with ESET .msi packages: efsw_nt64.msi /qn REMOVE=<list>

For more information about the REMOVE property see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows/desktop/Msi/remove exlink

The REMOVE list is a comma-separated list of parent features that will not be installed (or will be removed in case of existing installation).

It is sufficient to specify parent feature only. There is no need to explicitly include every child feature to the list.

ADDEXCLUDE=<list>

The ADDEXCLUDE list is a comma-separated list of all feature names not to be installed.

When selecting a feature not to be installed, then the whole path (i.e., all its child features) and related invisible features must be explicitly included in the list.

Usage with ESET .msi packages: efsw_nt64.msi /qn ADDEXCLUDE=<list>


NOTE

ADDEXCLUDE cannot be used with ADDLOCAL.

Feature Presence

Mandatory - The feature is always installed.

Optional - The feature may be deselected for install.

If you want to remove any of the following features, you need to remove the whole group by specifying every feature that belongs to the group. Otherwise, the feature will not be removed. Here are two groups (each line represents one group):

GraphicUserInterface,ShellExt

NetworkProtection,WebAccessProtection,IdsAndBotnetProtection,ProtocolFiltering,MailPlugins,EmailClientProtection


EXAMPLE

Exclude NetworkProtection section (including child features) from the installation using REMOVE parameter and specifying only parent feature:

msiexec /i efsw_nt64.msi /qn ADDLOCAL=ALL REMOVE=NetworkProtection

Alternatively, you can use ADDEXCLUDE parameter, but you must also specify all child features:

msiexec /i efsw_nt64.msi /qn ADDEXCLUDE=NetworkProtection,WebAccessProtection,IdsAndBotnetProtection,ProtocolFiltering,MailPlugins,EmailClientProtection


EXAMPLE

Core installation example:

msiexec /qn /i efsw_nt64.msi /l*xv msi.log ADDLOCAL=RealtimeProtection,Rmm

If you want your ESET File Security to be automatically configured after the installation, you can specify basic configuration parameters within the installation command.


EXAMPLE

Install ESET File Security and disable ESET LiveGrid®:

msiexec /qn /i efsw_nt64.msi ADDLOCAL=RealtimeProtection,Rmm,GraphicUserInterface CFG_LIVEGRID_ENABLED=0
