It's pretty easy to install it unattended... all documentation is given with the installer.... the usual /qb is working for me once the setup file is uncompressed.

Mcafee VirusScan 8I is pretty easy.

Empty your temp folder(%temp%)
Double click Setup.exe. The Setup is extracting the files in a subfolder your temp folder. In my case 'McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 80'

When the installation start you see a msi appear in the subfolder of the temp folder.

Copy the folder to a different location. Cancel the setup.

Now you can use the msi with the parameters:

msiexec /i vse800.msi /qb!- REBOOT=ReallySupress

Gool luck.

I'm pretty much a novice with this type project but have gotten it to work better than I expected so far BUT...
So far, I've developed an updated Win XP Cd for our origanization which needs to include McAfee 8.0i with its respective updates - this way the new machine will be somewhat protected from the git go. (Once it is booted up then we can install the latest dat file.)
So far I've slipstreamed SP2 and incorporates all of the windows updates thru Aug 06.
I just got McAfee 8.0i and the SDat file to work.
<< see batch file below >>

I've have spent several hours surfing the web looking for a way to include a silent install of Patch 13 in this package with no luck.
Then I need to add the Common Management Agent StandAlone version.

I sure could use some assistance with this.
Does anyone have any suggestions ??

cd McAfee\VSE8.0i
Start /wait setup.exe /quiet /norestart
cd ..
Start /wait sdat4843.exe /silent /prompt
REM Start /wait --> patch 13
REM Start /wait --> Common Management Agent StandAlone

The problem is people are talking about the enterprise version of McAfee AntiVirus, which uses Windows Installer, while the "desktop" versions use a proprietary installer by McAfee based on the Internet Explorer ActiveX-Control ( :ph34r: ).

I quote myself from this thread: http://www.msfn.org/...showtopic=81248, maybe it helps.

Here is what I've done:

1) Copy the MPF, MSC und VSO directories from .\en-US\Apps on the CD to a directory of your choice
2) Open install.ini in each of them and get the silent switch from general\installparam
3) Use this switch to install :)

(e.g. for Personal Firewall it will be "mcinst.exe /DoNotDeleteSetupFiles mpfmain.inf /install")


The only problem I have is, that when I use it in an unattended installation SecurityCenter tells me my activation status could not be verified.

I could not find any solution for this. I think it is because I'm not prompted to enter my account information, but I could not find an appropriate menu for this.

Any information on this?

Best regards, Rogge
