Reading Time: < 1 minute

Copy the below code to a notepad and rename as a batch file. e.g. InstallSAV.bat

REM — Check for an existing installation of Sophos Anti-Virus
if exist “C:\Program Files\Sophos\Sophos Anti-Virus\SavService.exe” goto _End
REM — Deploy to Windows 2000/XP/2003
\\servernamehere\SophosUpdate\CIDs\S000\SAVSCFXP\Setup.exe -s \ -user domain\username -pwd passwordhere -mng yes
REM — End of the script

Replace ‘servernamehere’ in both locations.
Replace ‘Domain\Username’
Replace ‘passwordhere’

Always test on one machine before pushing out to all.

  1. Thanks for this

    The one on Sophos website is for the old version

    You get there before Sophos did.

    By the way, how do i get it to install without being visible to the user?
