Deployment with multiple commands on one line

I need a solution

We have a package that requires some registry keys to be injected after the install to skip a registration phase.

The following command line works when run manually:

TrackVis_setup_v0.6.1.exe /S & reg.exe IMPORT trackvis_HKLM.reg /reg:64

However, if I use this as part of a software deployment task, in the command line box, one of two things will happen:

1. If the EXE installer is run fine the application installs correctly but the registry keys are not imported.

2. If you swap them around the registry key fails to import, error code 1, and the application install is not even attempted.

For now I have added an “install.bat” to the software package and called this instead, with the installation type set to “Windows Batch Installation file”, which is not ideal and causes the batch file to appear on screen but it does work.

Does Altiris not cope well with multiple commands like this or am I doing something wrong? Suggestions would be most welcome.

I’ve raised the security policies in the Endpoint protection Manager, after that many .exe file started to be blocked (I think it’s fine and normal) but, here, the developers create a lot of programs that connects and execute .exe files that the AV block and erase

For example the folder where those files tries to execute is:




And many users run those programs so I can no create an exception for each one. So to prevent this I created the following exception:


For 3 days I thought this has solved the problem but today another program in that folder was blocket, could anyone please help me on how to correct develop an exclution?

Thank you.



Does anyone know which bulletin keeps Windows Defender on Windows 7 up-to-date?

I need a solution

Based on a query of the database, I would think MSWD-001 should, but is extremely old. (showing mpas-fe-117924920.exe/mpas-fe-X64-117924920.exe) The version shown (117924920) equates to 1.179.2492.0 and is from Definition Update for Microsoft Security Essentials – KB2310138 (Definition 1.179.2492.0). The support article for KB2310138 states it was last updated in 2011.

In the MSWD-001 package folder on the ITSM server, the file names are not versioned, but the version of the files is 1.243.470.0. (for 3) and 1.243.459.0 (for 1).

My head hurts. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
