And also, about how to have the updated patches and anti-virus definitions merged into install source?
I'm sure many of you have done this before successfully. Please consider taking up the above request.
Update: here's a good, and confirmed to work properly, guide - made by mazin.
Guide for SAV's AIP
Before you use this guide, make sure SAV isn't installed on your system. Otherwise, you'll get errors when creating the Administrative Installation Point.
Create a folder anywhere on your hard disk and name it whatever you like. I'll assume you name it "SAVSource".
Copy the following files into "SAVSource":
1- 0x0409.ini (for French version, you need 0x040c.ini, instead)
5- Symantec AntiVirus.msi
Those 5 files are copied from your CD (of version 18.104.22.1688), of course.
6- SAVCE_22.214.171.1240_AllWin_EN .msp
This file is extracted from SAVCE_9.0.0_mp2.zip (3 MB) downloadable from here.
(for French version, you download this, instead.)
It's usually 5+ MB in size and can be downloaded from here. The file I'm using in this guide is named 20040828-003-i32.exe!
(for French version, you start here, instead.)
It's 2.5+ MB in size and can be downloaded from here.
The following quote shows the contents of remote.cmd!Before you run remote.cmd, make sure you put sleep.exe in your system32 or Windows folder.
ECHO Creating AIP
start /wait setup.exe /A /V"/QB TARGETDIR=%systemdrive%\SAV91400"
copy lusetup.exe %systemdrive%\SAV91400\CommonAppData\Symantec\LiveUpdate\LuMMInst\Lsetup.exe
ECHO Patching AIP
copy "SAVCE_126.96.36.1990_AllWin_EN .msp" %systemdrive%\SAV91400\savce1400.msp
start /wait msiexec /p %systemdrive%\SAV91400\savce1400.msp /a "%systemdrive%\SAV91400\Symantec AntiVirus.msi" /QB
ren "%systemdrive%\SAV91400\Symantec AntiVirus.msi" SAV.msi
ECHO Updating AIP Virus Definitions
attrib -r "%systemdrive%\SAV91400\program files\Symantec AntiVirus\Virus Defs\*.*"
start /wait 20040828-003-i32.exe /Extract /Q "%systemdrive%\SAV91400\program files\Symantec AntiVirus\Virus Defs"
After remote.cmd exits, you should have your AIP created (ready steady) as a folder in your system drive and named SAV91400.
Now, delete "SAVSource" folder, as it's no longer needed.
To install SAV using your AIP, add these lines to your batch file:
ECHO SAV 188.8.131.520 V.Defs updated 28.8.2004
start /wait %systemdrive%\Install\SAV91400\SAV.msi /QB RUNLIVEUPDATE=0 REBOOT=ReallySuppress
