Avast free version Silent installation parameters?
« on: May 06, 2017, 09:25:31 AM »
Avast free version of the silent installation parameters?
How do I use the parameters to customize the installation component?
What are the silent installation parameters for offline virus libraries?

As far as I'm aware there are no silent install parameters for avast free, or rather there is no executable to carry it out. Only the paid versions are able to do a silent install.
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 24.4.6112 (build 24.4.9067.762) UI 1.0.803/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

there is a silent installer for avast free, just download the offline installer and use this switch

Code: [Select]
avast_free_antivirus_setup_offline.exe /silent

Have no clue if this works but, if it does, it gives you a default install.
No chance to unselect anything.

reply to an old thead sorry but this is what I found via search.

It can be done and here is how I did it.

Use msi wrapper "exemsi.com", their free version works.

Wrap your exe with msi wrapper and push out via gpo. Working fine so far.

Sorry but posting in an old topic is never a good idea.
Especially a topic that's 3 years old.
If you have something to add, start your own topic and reference this post or topic.
