your problem could be Symantec AntiVirus.msi

ren the file name to sav.msi maybe help

:( it's doing the same thing :(

I renamed the file to sav.msi and its still opening a blank command window. This is the code I used.

START /WAIT "%CDROM%\Apps\Applications\SAV10\sav.msi /passive RUNLIVEUPDATE=0 REBOOT=REALLYSUPPRESS"

Whats going on?? :angry:

START /WAIT "%CDROM%\\Apps\\Applications\\SAV10\\sav.msi /passive RUNLIVEUPDATE=0 REBOOT=REALLYSUPPRESS"

add double slash see.... \\

my code

SAV\\sav.msi /passive RUNLIVEUPDATE=0 REBOOT=REALLYSUPPRESS

Hi all,

I am trying to install sav 10 ce using the method explained by shark, but for some reason I am getting an error saying that "/passive" is an invalid switch... this is the code im using to run the installer:

START /WAIT "%CDROM%\I386\SVCPACK\Install\Applications\SAV10\Symantec AntiVirus.msi" /passive RUNLIVEUPDATE=0 REBOOT=REALLYSUPPRESS

Any ideas?? Please advice! TIA!!

1st of all, my instruction applied to a Corporate version, you are using CE.

2nd, the /passive switch requires windows installer 3.0 or greater. If the passive switch isnt accepted by whatever version of windows you are using, try /qb as a replacement.

3rd, I stopped using Symantec because, in my experience, it was a resource hog i could do without. I've personally switched to NOD32 for my antivirus needs.

Shark you said symantec was resource hog. I failed to see this. Could you explain this a little more? I'm just curious.

ok, i'll try. resource hog is probabably not the correct term.. I do an extreme amount of file move / copy / delete operations, and this type of activity seemed slow. once i killed the symantec real time proccesses , this again went smoothly. since i switched to NOD32, i dont expererience these slowdowns which to me, were very annoying. I wont go back to symantec simply because i am quite pleased with NOD32's performance and ability, which, in my opinion, matches symantecs.

I have modified the script from jftuga to my own needs. This is for Linux and Unices only at the moment. You could compare it with the script from jftuga which works on Windows.

Symantec Antivirus 8.x, 9.x, 10.x Coporate Edition XDB Definition Updater

Automatically updates XDB virus definitions from Symantec's web site.
The program checks if the download directory exists. Otherwise it will create the directory from AVPATH.

Checks if it already has downloaded the latest version.

can anyone help me with this problem?? Is anyone experienceing the same problem??

I've just started to read this topic, to see if there's something new that I could play with, since I've already had SAV 10!

I can't see what's new here. Silent switches I used for SAV 9 are what I use for 10.

They are the same: /QB RUNLIVEUPDATE=0 REBOOT=ReallySuppress

So, what's different here from the other 13-page thread? :P

@ atomicrabbit

If you haven't got a solution yet, this works for me:

START "" /WAIT "%CDROM%\Apps\Applications\SAV10\sav.msi" /QB RUNLIVEUPDATE=0 REBOOT=ReallySuppress

It's exactly the same line I used for SAV 9!
