Important

The Product Activation task can activate a mobile product, ESET Endpoint For Android, also using an offline license.  

The activation task cannot activate ESET products of version 4 and 5 with the offline license. You need to activate the product manually or use a supported product version (we recommend using the latest version).

Summary

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: click the Client Task instance and select Run on from the drop-down menu.
