Installing the management components
To install the management components of Symantec Mobile AntiVirus, you must perform the following tasks:

Installing the wireless administration tools
You must copy the administration tools files to an administrator's computer or to the computer that hosts your MDM system.

Although LiveUpdate and the LiveUpdate Administration Utility can reside on a different computer than LiveUpdate Repackager, it is convenient to have all of these tools on the same computer so that you do not need to move files or type

  2. Click Browse CD.
  3. Open the Tools folder.

  • If you use Symantec System Center, you can install to devices by using the ClientRemote Install Tool.
  • You can install by copying the installation files to a computer, and then transferring the files by using your MDM software, or any TCP/IP-based network connection in your existing infrastructure.

Installing Symantec Mobile AntiVirus on devices by using the installation wizard
Appropriate synchronization software must be installed on the computer that you are using for installation. You must also have administrator privileges on the computer.

  1. Launch the Symantec Mobile AntiVirus installer from your computer by double-clicking Start.exe.
  2. Follow the on-screen instructions to install to your device.

    \Program Files\Symantec\ LiveUpdate\...
    \Program Files\Symantec SymEvent\...
    \Program Files\Openbit\...

    On the device, the Programs > Symantec Security folder contains the following software: Symantec Mobile AntiVirus and LiveUpdate Wireless.

Installing Symantec Mobile AntiVirus on devices by using Symantec System Center
If you use Symantec System Center, you can install Symantec Mobile AntiVirus to devices by using the ClientRemote Install tool.

  1. In Symantec System Center, on the Tools menu, click ClientRemote Install.
  2. In the welcome panel, click Next.
  3. In the location panel, click Browse.
    Do not use the default location, which points to Symantec Client Security file locations.

    For example:

Or, if you plan to have users install Symantec Mobile AntiVirus on their own devices, you can email the file to users, or have them pick up the file from a central server.
  7. Once installed, an icon for Symantec Mobile AntiVirus appears on the device's Programs screen.
