Installing the ActivTrak Agent via Command Line

The ActivTrak agent downloads for Windows as a standard MSI file. As such, the command line and PowerShell commands that use MSIEXEC will work as normal. The command to utilize for a quiet deployment is detailed below. The x's indicate your account number, which is inside of the title of the MSI file. The use of these commands should be done with an Elevated Command-Prompt or PowerShell window.

MSIEXEC /i ATACCTxxxxxx.MSI /Quiet 

Uninstall works the same way with the following command. 

MSIEXEC /x ATACCTxxxxxx.MSI /Quiet 

These commands should be used when interacting with a remote machine and you would like to deploy the agent silently. These also work when using an RMM Tool that has Remote Command Line Access, or through the use of PSExec.

The command will run silently and you will not receive any additional message about it after the command is run. If you choose to use an RMM tool or other third-party tools, this may provide you with a success or fail message.
