Although the janusSEAL for Outlook 2.0 Administration Guide provides all the relevant information for deploying janusSEAL for Outlook using the Group Policy Editor, alternative methods of deployment are also possible, e.g. using Microsoft's System Management Server (SMS).

As these methods may require a command line component, the following will be of use when setting up the deployment procedure:

NB: The procedure will need to be run with Administrator rights

Code: msiexec /i janusSEALSetup.msi /qn ALLUSERS=1

/i installs the nominated package, in this case janusSEALSetup.msi

/qn sets the user interface level - in this case none

ALLUSERS=1 Per-machine installation using folders in "All Users" profile.

To uninstall

Code: msiexec /x janusSEALSetup.msi /qn ALLUSERS=1

Note that:

  • if you installed from the desktop (eg double click on janusSEALSetup.msi) then you will need to use AddRemove programs to perform an uninstall You can't use MSIEXEC from the command line
  • if SMS was used to execute the MSIEXEC, then use SMS again to perform an upgrade
