AVG Self extraction package

I'm trying to install AVG Network Edition on a Wyse C90LEW Terminal.  It won't install because its trying to self extract the package and it peaks the CPU, then an error comes up.  Is there anyway I can self extract the package on another machine and just run the setup file?

You could try on a regular computer to see if you can just extract the files with a tool like WinRar.

It depends on the format that the self extracting archive is but WinRar will open most common archive formats. Then just take the extracted folder and copy to the thin client and run the setup.

Isn't a virus scanner on a thin client a bit overkill though? Just wondering if it's really required.

avg_ipw_stf_all_90_790a2730.exe

Thats the file.  Its an exe.  I'm not sure where it extracts to, it just says extracting then goes to the setup as soon as it extracts.

I just downloaded the file avg_ipw_stf_all_90_790a2730.exe.
I used 7zip to right click on it and extract it to a folder.

7zip is available free from here http://www.7-zip.org/
It's like winzip.

Don't double click it or it will try to self extract.

Instead you right click on the file and choose to extract to a location you want. IE c:\temp\avg_ipw_stf_all_90_790a2730\

You can download WinRAR or 7Zip for free and c a n o n has already proved this method works.

Here are some images of what the process looks like. And it does seem to work.

You should then copy the folder contents to your thin client and perform the installation by running the avgsetup.exe

Double click the file to open it with Winrar. Create a folder on Desktop and drag all the files & drop them to the new folder.

Or use winrar dos command line.
