If you have successfully created the deployment package and copied the file to the machine where the ERA Agent and ESET Endpoint product is going to be installed, complete the following steps:


You can also perform the installation of your deployment package in silent mode. More information can be found in this Knowledgebase article.

You must execute the installer using the Built-in Administrator account, or a domain Administrator account (in case the built-in Administrator account is disabled). Any other user, despite being a member of the Administrators group, will not have sufficient access rights. Therefore, you need to use the built-in Administrator account, as you will not be able to successfully complete the installation under any other user account than the local or domain Administrator.

1.Run the installer file on the client computer(s).
