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.

To create the task, click Tasks > New > add_new_defaultClient Task or click the desired client device in Computers and select New Task.


In the Basic section, enter basic information about the task, such as a Name and Description (optional). Click Select tags to assign tags.
In the Task drop-down menu, select the task type you want to create and configure. If you have selected a specific task type before creating a new task, Task is pre-selected based on your previous choice. Task (see the list of all 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.

Package to install - Select the latest version available from the repository to upgrade.

Select the check box I accept the terms of the application End User License Agreement and acknowledge the Privacy Policy. See 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: click the Client Task instance and select Run on from the drop-down menu.


In Tasks you can see the progress indicator bar, status icon, and details for each created task.



Do not use a Software Install task to upgrade ESET PROTECT components (Agent, Server, MDM). Use the Components Upgrade task instead. You can use a Software Install task to upgrade only the Rogue Detection Sensor component.

You can run immediate ESET security product update from Dashboard using one-click actions.

See upgrade instructions for ESET Security for Microsoft SharePoint to complete this upgrade.
