ESET will not install remotely

Hello Experts,

I'm using a script in Labtech to install ESET on a Windows XP machine.  The script runs successfully but ESET is still not installing.  I have tried re-running the script but the software will not install.  Any ideas?

I do not know the install script, can you supply it?
I suppose you need the script for an automated install?

Please use ESET Remote Administrator for automatic deployment, this is the recommended way, it's free anyway:

Normally you have several options to automate the install of ESET. By far the best is to deploy the MSI package via a group policy. Remote Administrator will build you the MSI with a initial config. Then, RA will take care of all connected clients.

Also, with RA you have the option to do an Administrative install. You will need to have administrative access to the machine, meaning the ADMIN$ share. But the debugging of the process is fairly easy since you can test it and Ra shows exactly what is not working.

Thank you for your response.  Yes I know about the RA through ESET.  The problem is only this ONE workstation is having an issue with the script not working all others the software installs fine.  The site is not using GPs otherwise I complete agree that is by far the best solution.  I will see if I can attach a copy of the script if it is not proprietary to Labtech.

Sorry for asking; but the obvious thing is to install eset manually on this one workstation and import the config.xml?

Did you make sure that services which are required to install the software remotely are running?
