SUPERAntiSpyware 5.0 Silent Install

I'm trying to figure out how to install SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition silently on computers that come into the shop.  I can still do it with the old SUPERAntiSpyware 4.0 .msi file that I have, but I can't seem to find the .msi file for 5.0, or to be able to extract it from the .exe.  Does anyone know how I could accomplish this, or even silent install with the .exe?

Thanks in advance!

There's no MSI file inside this one, apparently it's not made with MSI.

According to the grey line in the bottom left corner, this setup is made with something called "supersetup", which sounds like their own invention. I think the best option to ask at their forum, where they do seem to answer

I know this is not the answer you want, but have you looked at MalwareBytes?

SAS has not kept up with the quality of the detections since its release, and is usually a big resource hog....

Anyhoo.....

Looks like this version  the /q on the .exe doesn't even work......

The only folders  it creates during install is :

%TEMP%\SuperSetup
%appdata%\SUPERSetup
%appdata%\SUPERAntiSpyware.com

Oh, I agree that Malwarebytes is MUCH BETTER, however, I install both programs just off the fact that sometimes SUPERAntiSpyware will catch things other programs will not.  I will post on their forum, but I have a feeling they are going to tell me that only the Professional Edition is able to.

If they have created their own installation tool, I don't think they made the tool itself also different for "pro" and "free" versions. The command switch, if any, would apply to the tool.

If you want, we can try to repackage it into true MSI.

I do appreciate the offer vadimrapp1, but I don't NEED to have a silent install.  I technically don't need to have SUPERAntiSpyware in my list of programs to automatically install.  However it would be nice.  I'll ask my boss, who I'm sure will ask me how much it would be, but if you do have suggestions that would be FREE, that would be the best option for me! :)  I know, I know, everybody wants things for free these days.  Damn kids :P

So, is silent install with SUPERAntiSpyware impossible now, without breaking down the coding?

Since it's appears to be their own custom installer, it's totally unknown. The only party who has the answer are themselves on their forum. Indirectly, if in the past they had MSI but then moved to end-user-oriented tool, quiet network deployment probably wasn't one of their priorities.

I found this page that indicates that have it planned when they were building 5.0, maybe this helps?

These are version 4 MSI's, which the author said he has. He was looking for version 5.

The question was in fact investigated and answered, with the answer being  http:#36580876 - this setup is made by the developers themselves, using their own custom installer, so only they know how it works, and they seem to be participating on their forum.

SouthMod, as you know, one of the acceptable answers is "you can't do that". Author's comment http#36583384 confirms that what we found in http:#36580876  was correct, the installer of this product is proprietary, and the only way to obtain what author wanted was to email "nicks AT superantispyware.com".

I wish there was a better answer than another forum, or have someone reverse engineer it, but that's the way it is sometimes.  Thank you for your help everyone.
