    The usual way to find these switches is to run

    setup.exe /?

    or

    look up the specific app online on somewhere like appdeploy.com now http://www.itninja.com/software/brow...hTips=WithTips

    As above appdeploy is the best place. Otherwise the main switches are S Q slient quiet VS VQ A N

    That will all be custom.exe switches, you will have to consult the Sophos documentation... but here's one I made earlier (designed for MDT so you may find the share authentication unnecesary).

    Code:
    @echo off
    
    echo Authenticating to \\Sophos\SophosUpdate as user SCHOOL\sophosinstalluser
    net use \\Sophos\SophosUpdate /user:"SCHOOL\sophosinstalluser" passwordhere
    
    echo Running Sophos installer with credentials for user SCHOOL\sophosinstalluser
    start /wait \\Sophos\SophosUpdate\CIDs\S000\SAVSCFXP\Setup.exe -s \ -user "SCHOOL\sophosinstalluser" -pwd "passwordhere" -mng yes -g "\Sophos\Global Group\Computer Group"
    
    echo Running Sophos update process
    REM Check for 32bit or 64bit OS and switch to the correct location for the update utility
    reg query HKLM\Hardware\Description\System\CentralProcessor\0 /c /f "x86" > nul:
    
    If %ERRORLEVEL% == 0 (
        echo System is 32bit
        start /b "%PROGRAMFILES%\Sophos\AutoUpdate\ALUpdate.exe -ManualUpdate"
    ) ELSE (
        echo System is 64bit
        start /b "%PROGRAMFILES(X86)%\Sophos\AutoUpdate\ALUpdate.exe -ManualUpdate"
    )
    
    
    :loop
    
    tasklist /nh /fi "imagename eq ALUpdate.exe" | find /i "ALUpdate.exe" >nul && (
    	echo ALUpdate.exe is running, waiting for it to finish
    	timeout 10
    	goto loop
    ) || (
    	echo ALUpdate.exe process has ended.
    )

    Although that's actually for completely the wrong product and I should learn to read, but you get the idea.

    With all due respect, why not use RMVP5 with all that hassle done for you...

    I will have a play with this tomorrow, i can actually get the product to allocate out to stations just using a bog standard cc3 ini file but can't get it to allocate quietly or silently, users would be able to cancel the install from running.

    The RMVP5 CC3 package from RM uses the SEP MSI.

    Code:
    [Package]
    Description=RMVP5.1 for Computers
    OS=5.WS,5.2WS,
    WIPackage=SYMANTEC ANTIVIRUS.MSI
    Reboots=1
    AddCommand=RUNLIVEUPDATE=0 SYMPROTECTDISABLED=0 ADDLOCAL=Core,SAVMain,PTPMain,COHMain
    UninstallCommand=REBOOT=FORCE

    Maybe the MSI file extracts from the .exe. Might be worth checking %temp% while the installer is running.
