Unattended installation of VirusScan


Please refer to page 16 of the below document.

I'm trying to perform an unattended installation of VirusScan from the command line by running SetupVSE. I want this to be a completely silent or /QR installation, but in doing so I want to be able to amend the subscription perioud. The default is 1 year and I want this to be Perpetual. Is it possible to automate this setting without manually applying it?

I can't see anything in the manual that explains how to do this. It mentions that if the defaults aren't accepted, then the period will have to be changed, but it doesn't appear to state how this is done.

Please advise.

Re: Unattended installation of VirusScan

There isn't a way to do this via CLI -- the install guide states:

"NOTE: When you install the product silently, the default license option of “1 year perpetual” is selected. VirusScan Enterprise does not enforce any license restrictions and no license expiration occurs."
