Installing an unmanaged Windows client

An unmanaged (or self-managed) client usually allows a user greater control of
Symantec Endpoint Protection
settings through the client user interface. Typically, you install an unmanaged
Symantec Endpoint Protection
client directly on to a Windows computer, and the installation requires user input to complete.
When you install a managed Windows client installation package directly on to the client computer, the steps to install are similar. Only an
Interactive
installation requires user input. The client installation setting options
Show progress bar only
and
Silent
do not require user input.
Unmanaged client packages that are configured with custom policies may not display during installation some of the panels that are described. If you do not see an installation panel that the procedure step describes, skip to the next step.
