Creating custom Windows client installation packages in
Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager

You can customize client installation packages for
Symantec Endpoint Protection
for Windows by configuring the client installation settings and the client feature sets. This customization lets you configure an installation path, the restart behavior after installation, whether the installation package uninstalls a third-party security product, among others.
Client Install Settings and Client Install Feature Set configurations only apply to Windows install packages. You can export a Macintosh or Linux install package through
Admin > Install Packages > Client Install Package
, but the configuration options differ.
