VirusScan Repackaging

VirusScan Repackaging

VirusScan Repackaging

I am having the hardest time, trying to package the superdats that update our mcafee virusscans on our win95 and nt machines. i can get the package to update the virusscan but i just cant stop the package from crashing at the end of the install. has anybody had any experience packaging superdats and other virus stuff? we have sms 2.0

RE: VirusScan Repackaging

McAfee actually has its own repackaging. I was working with a company that was trying to do the same thing. If you were using SMS Installer there were problems. Try researching McAfee to see what they had.


RE: VirusScan Repackaging

I currently am pushing the superdats to users. I did not repackage anything. I simply wrote a batch file to copy the superdat to the hard drive (I didn't want 1400 people running the superdat from the same place). I then launch "sdat -s /reboot /prompt". I run this advertisement weekly.
