Upgrade ESET software

The Software Install task can be used to upgrade ESET Security Products. Run the task using the latest installer package to install the latest version over your existing solution.


Enter basic information about the task, such as the Name and optional Description. Task Category and Task Type are pre-selected based on your previous choice. The Task Type (see the list of all Client Tasks) defines the settings and the behavior for the task.


ESET license - Do not select a license when upgrading an active product. Only select a license when installing or upgrading products that are not active, or if you want to change the license currently in use to a different license.

Select the check box I accept the terms of the application End User License Agreement and acknowledge the Privacy Policy. See License Management or EULA for more information.


Review the summary of configured settings and click Finish. The Client Task is now created and a pop-up window will open. We recommend that you click Create Trigger to specify when this Client Task should be executed and on what Targets. If you click Close, you can create a Trigger later. To create a trigger afterward, select the client task instance and select Run on from the drop-down menu.
