You install an unmanaged Symantec Endpoint Protection client directly on to a Windows computer. This type of installation usually requires interaction with or feedback from the user. However, you can export an unmanaged package through Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager with custom installation settings.
If you install a managed Windows client directly, the end user only interacts with an installation package that has an Interactive client installation settings type. In this situation, the steps to install are similar to those of the unmanaged client. The end user does not interact with the installation packages that use the client installation settings types Show progress bar only or Silent.
