We are big fans of  HitmanPro.Alert and want to deploy it at all our customer's sites.
Our management portal can script installs but it doesn't seem that the  HitmanPro.Alert installer has a /quiet or /silent switch.  Desktops end up with "System Message" pop-ups.
Anybody know a way around this?

I saw in the pdf for it deploying as GPO and the command reference that can be handy

/quiet - Implies /scan but immediately initiates a silent scan of the computer.

Hitman Pro will be visible only in the system tray and a notification balloon is displayed, notifying the user his computer is scanned for malware. When infections are found, the program will pop up for interaction with the user. The EULA is automatically accepted.
 
Example: HitmanPro35.exe /quiet

/scanonly - Immediately initiates a silent scan of the computer

Hitman Pro will be visible only in the system tray. Does not show a notification balloon.
Program will not be installed on the local computer (implies /noinstall). The EULA is automatically accepted.
 
Example: HitmanPro35.exe /scanonly

/log= - This will instruct Hitman Pro to scan a system silently and export the results to an xml log file to the specified log file folder (typically a network location). No dialogs are displayed to the user.

Examples:
HitmanPro35.exe /scanonly /log="Z:\%USERNAME%.xml"
HitmanPro35.exe /scanonly /log="Z:\%COMPUTERNAME%.xml"
HitmanPro35.exe /scanonly /log="\\Server\Share\Logs\"
 
In these examples Z: is a typical shared folder on a file server. Users (or a user group) must have the write permission on this folder and share.
 
When specifying a folder as logfile it must end with a \ When logging to a folder, the file name is constructed using the computer name and a date/time stamp, example:
 
WORKSTATION14_20100428114347.xml

Thanks for your help - This reference is for Hitman Pro, though.
HitmanPro.Alert is a different product

Will check it out further but will the option list at command line list out the avilable option such as using /? or something similar...it also has 32 and 64 bit executables and are all services rather than plugin. I suspecting if the hitman pro approach can be adopted though thinking aloud...

I saw in forum stating

command line options like /install /uninstall /quiet. In addition we have a GPO template planned for configuration.

No further details though to dive deeper, another means is to poll the community forum for sharing - I am sure you are not the first
