    Unistall NOD32 from ePO 4.5

      Hi everyone,

       

      I've find out the script to uninstall silently NOD32 from client computers but I am wondering how to run this script from ePO.

       

      Does anyone know how to run a custom script from ePO or will I have to run the script from GPO?

       

      many thanks in advance!

          There's no way to run a custom script from ePO, I'm afraid. However if what you're trying to do is replace NOD32 with VirusScan, then I believe you should simply be able to install VSE over the top of NOD32: VSE has a list of software that it knows about and can uninstall - I think NOD32 is on the list. It's definitely worth trying - manually run the VSE installer on one machine: it should prompt you to remove NOD32.

            Thanks for your reply!

             

            VSE is uninstalling automatically several different antivirus softwares (tested and working fine for several AV) , but so far is unable to uninstall NOD32.

             

            I was looking to attach a script to the deployment phase in ePO , but probably I have to run a separate script from GPO to previously uninstall NOD32?

             

            Many thanks.

              Ah, OK

               

              In that case, it might be easier to contact the VSE team (or maybe the VSE forum here.)  It should be comparatively easy to add your version of NOD32 to the uninstall list for VSE.

                Hi! Nod32 is password protected?

                If not i have a uninst.ini file that automatically remove some version of NOD32.

                If nod32 is password-protected i have not find a solution to automatically remove nod32.

                  The best way I find was inserting a uninstall script in VSE pkg (using McAfee Installation Designer). Just adding something like this msiexec.exe /X {15D68340-6695-4C63-AE34-00AC4CDFBFA7} /qn REBOOT=ReallySuppress Of course you got to add the registry value thats match with your Eset NOD32 version.The second way was adding a new product to uninstall.ini and repackaging VSE with MID

                  and works ! the last month I use it against 750 PCs and Servers (XP & Y3k)

                    No is not password protected, could you please send me an example of what did you add to the uninstall.ini file?

                    I have trid a couple of test so far but NOD32 is still there..

                     

                    many thanks!

                      Hi there,

                       

                      I looked in HKLM\software\microsoft\windows\uninstall and I couldn't find any GUID for nod32...nod32 is listed in the uninstall reg key but only with name nod32 and the uninstall string refer only to his setup.exe and not to msiexec.exe...so maybe the best way in my case is go ahead with uninstall.ini file...I'll give some try with that!

                       

                      thanks!

                        You must modify uninst.ini file changing software globally unique identifiers and nod32 version, adding this part:
