Installing MSE in WHS 2011 from command prompt

Recommended Posts

I just read a post that states that Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) can be installed in WHS 2011.

Here...http://www.avforums....3649-post2.html

Has anyone tried this?

 

If your not interested in following the link, this is what it reads...

 

"Just want to remind people that MSE can be installed on WHS 2011 if you need an antivirus

 

Copy the mseinstall (x64 version) file to your WHS desktop or a folder on the desktop

 

Using command prompt navigate to the directory where the mseinstall is and type: mseinstall /disableoslimit

Alternatively, press shift while right clicking the folder you placed the installer in (select "Open Command Window Here") and type the same command as above "

And remember the Command Prompt is "tab aware" so no need for all that typing!!

 

CD <space> find the directory folder and hit enter. Rinse and repeat until you get to the desired folder.

Thanks g725s. It's good to have the info actually posted on HSS.

Why has this been under wraps for so long? I know that a guy who builds HTPCs posted he's been doing this for nearly two years. But he would not let out how it is done.

 

jmwills, why not just navigate to the .exe you put in a folder on your desktop, press shift while right clicking the folder you placed the installer in (select "Open Command Window Here") and type the command ?

Not really sure what your saying about the command prompt.

You can do that. Not many people know the "Tab Aware" feature in the Command Prompt. Helps when you you have to go 7 or 8 folders deep.

jmwills, Do you think it is a good idea to install MSE on WHS 2011 this way? Do you see it in add/remove programs so it could be fully uninstalled if wanted?

It's there. That "disable......" is an interesting switch. I have some other thing to try that on.
