Using the Startup Wizard

When you log into the Web Console for the first time, a Startup Wizard for ESET Remote Administrator will appear. This wizard will give a basic explanation of important ERA Web Console sections, ERA Agent and ESET security products. You will read about Computers, Groups, Tasks, ERA Agent and ESET Endpoint Security 6 or ESET Endpoint Antivirus 6.

The last step of the Startup Wizard called Deployment will help you Create all-in-one installer package (containing ERA Agent and ESET security product).

The installer package comes as an .exe file and is valid for Windows only.

If you do not want to use the wizard, click Close Startup Wizard. ERA Web Console will open. The wizard will not show up the next time you log into the ERA Web Console. You can view the Startup wizard again by resetting stored user state, see user settings for details.

Use of the Wizard in not required, you can Create all-in-one Agent installer by clicking Deploy ERA Agent... in the Quick Links section of the menu bar.

If you want to create an installer package, your user account must have the Administration permissions set assigned. If a user account has the Server assisted installation permission set or Reviewer permission set, the startup wizard will be displayed without the last step Deployment and the user will not have the option to create an installer package.

Follow the steps bellow to create an installer package:

1.Language - select a language for the installer from the drop-down list of supported languages.

2.Product - select an ESET security product installation file from the list. If you choose version 6.3 or older, automatic product activation will not work, you'll have to activate the product later. ESET security version 6.4 or newer will be automatically activated during the installation.


If you do not see any product installation files, make sure you have repository set to AUTOSELECT, in the Advanced settings section of Server settings.

3.Choose License (Optional) - you can add a license using one of the methods described in the Licenses section. If you already have existing licenses in License Management, simply choose the license that will be used to activate the ESET security product during the installation. If you do not choose a license, you can create an installer without it and activate the product later.

4.If you select the Advanced checkbox, you'll be able to choose an Agent certificate and enter Certificate passphrase if needed. For example if you've specified the passphrase during the installation of your ERA, or if you are using Custom certificate with a passphrase. Otherwise, leave the Certificate passphrase field blank.


5.Click Create Installer, all-in-one installation package files will be generated for 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems. Click the desired version to start downloading it. Once the download completes you will be prompted to specify location where to store the file (for example ERA_Installer_x32_en_US.exe or ERA_Installer_x64_en_US.exe), click Save file.

6.Run the all-in-one installation package file on a client computer. For step-by-step instructions, see All-in-one Agent setup wizard.
