I have been installing the new console 4.5 that schools have to use from March. The instructions are a bit off and you end up having to find your own way round things. I have started documenting them on my forum which I set up a few days ago: OLCHS Tech Forum - Home

What script is this as I'm due to remove Sophos and install the latest version. Any chance of a copy or a link to it?

psexec %1 msiexec.exe /x "c:\program files\sophos\autoupdate\cache\savxp\sophos anti-virus.msi" /q /norestart

Remove via batch command
"c:\program files\Sophos Sweep for NT\ESXP\setup.exe" -remove -ni -s
or if it's a server path
"\\servername\Sophos Sweep for NT\ESXP\setup.exe" -remove -ni -s

We had this very problem with some machines not updating. After checking event viewer on the affected computers it turned out to be a corrupt windows installer service. Re-install the windows installer service. I used this file WindowsXP-KB942288-v3-x86.exe from Microsoft to re-install the service. Search MS for that file and run it on the workstations in question.
This may solve your problem.

Using the scripts to remove then install I have managed to start getting through the new console 4.5 quite quickly.

When we upgraded to the latest client, enterprise console simply upgraded the install, no removal necessary

The console was fine overall, sometime the client didn't remove from the users computer so then it has to be removed first. Then a script is good.
