View Full Version : latest msi download location?

2007-08-18, 21:18
Hi all

Sorry if this is somewhere else, but i havent been able to find it.

Just wondering if there is a msi installer for the newest build of 1.5 [i.e. 1.5.1.x] as I got the msi from the same location as i got the normal exe version, but its only version

Also, is there a list of command line options for the 1.5 exe and also, is there a list of custom command line options for the msi?

Many thanks.

MSI command line options are the standard ones, we didn't provide any custom ones yet.

The EXE command line parameters are still the same, documented inside the help file (RC 1 comes with a new one). Also you might like into the InnoSetup (http://jrsoftware.org/isinfo.php) help file, since we use InnoSetup for this installer.

There's no tested MSI installer for RC 1 yet - you might try this untested (http://www.safer-networking.org/files/beta/spybotsd15.msi) one though.

Hi PepiMK :)

Thanks for the info.

The msi i tried was the one at that link :laugh: I couldnt find the msi linked anywhere posted, so had to guess at it ;)

Worked fine for me though :)

Just liked how 1.5.1 [is 1.5.1 = RC1 then?] looked etc. Hope you can get time to make a msi version of 1.5.1. If there's anything i can do there, then I'd be happy to help :)

Thanks for updating the msi - i may have downloaded it just before you updated it. I just downloaded it now and its so many thanks.

Works well so far :)

Yep, I updated it around the time I posted it ;) = RC 1. The .14 is the number describing this RC. It's 1.5.1 instead of 1.5.0 because 1.5.0 was an internal state about Vista compatibility only, and there were things afterwards that made it worth another digit behind the second point ;)

What we really have to test (but no one can help there right now) is updates between different MSIs, trying out MSPs (updates as patch files) etc..

2007-08-21, 03:21
hehe yep... i understand ;) :)

Should be able to help test MSP's if you need it.

Are you refering to deploying msi's via GP or just in a normal install sense? And whether they upgrade a older version [or not hehe]

Feel free to grab me on MSN if you want to talk about it "off" the forum :)

Forgot to mention, like the new updater app... handles proxies better i think too - unless its my imagination lol [which it could well be ;)]

it would be nice if the Spybot MSI installer was also available, especially for Vista users. many Vista-ready apps, including the newly released Ad-Aware 2007 version (which is NOW fully compatible with Vista) uses Windows Installer to install programs. even the latest versions of the Nero cd burning software use MSI. MSI installers have the option of repairing programs with missing or corrupted files which is a definite plus for MSI packages (and that "repair" feature is not found in InnoSetup packages).

2007-09-01, 00:42
Well, personally I hate MSI installers. I just can't stand it when an uninstaller of a larger package needs half an hour when other installers do the same thing in under a minute. What good does a repair function if it takes ten times as long as an uninstall + reinstall? ;)
(one of the worst examples is CodeGears Delphi, where the service pack installation of the 2007 version is said to take hours up to a full day/night if I remember correctly).

Anyway, as I posted before, we're following the Certified for Vista guidelines up to the point where they get dangerous for security software, and msi is a part that's easily fulfilled. Won't be available the same day as the final though, would need to discuss it with the mirrors first (and the website might need some adjustment depending on how this would be made available).

Is there any further news on an updated msi installer.

I've had a go at making one myself but ran into UAC issues.

I'd also like to know if there are any plans to have some sort of kit for creating transforms to customise the install eg Teatimer on/off

2007-09-24, 18:13
The newest one is here (http://www.spybotupdates.com/files/spybotsd15.msi); same content as the release.

The installer has separated components already, so that I guess a few things could already be toggled. Might need to create a bit of documentation ;)

Hi there!

Is there an updated version now we are up to

Many thanks


2008-02-01, 18:00
Sure, please try spybotsd152.msi (http://www.spybotupdates.com/files/spybotsd152.msi) :)

2008-02-05, 22:05
I downloaded the MSI and it appears to be for still.

2008-02-06, 09:17
Ah sorry! The executable version is called spybotsd152.exe, so the msi should be spybotsd152.msi of course! Link above corrected!

2008-02-06, 14:31
So you're right Leon and I didn't notice :oops:

Thanks all!

What is the status of having a spybotsd160.msi package released?

2008-07-15, 21:15
Have updated the scripts but will wait for the test team to give their ok first :)

2008-07-28, 13:53
What is the status on the testing? It has been nearly 2 weeks since it went out for testing.

2008-07-28, 18:27
Ah, sorry. I don't quite like Microsofts WiX, even though it's the most official msi route, so I tend to push it back to lower places on the priority list ;)
The standard version msi download is now available here (http://www.spybotupdates.com/files/spybotsd160.msi) or here (http://www.spybotupdates.biz/files/spybotsd160.msi) :)
For Corporate or SBE, they should appear in the corporate subforum soon.

Will there shortly be an update to 1.6.2 for the MSI?

2009-10-27, 11:11
Any news of a 1.6.2 MSI?

2009-10-27, 11:30

I am sorry, but there is no 1.6.2 msi file.
For our corporate users we have a 1.6.3 msi file.

Best regards
