Install the client software using the Windows command prompt

You can use the Windows command prompt to install the client software on a standalone or endpoint computer.

  1. Create the following folder if it doesn't exist:
    C:\Windows\Temp\SkyhighLogs\
  2. Open an Administrator Command Prompt.
  3. Copy and paste one of these commands at the prompt, then click Enter.
    • 32-bit installation — SCPInstaller.x86.msi REBOOT=ReallySuppress /q /L*V+ "C:\Windows \Temp\SkyhighLogs\SCPInstall.log"
    • 64-bit installation — SCPInstaller.x64.msi REBOOT=ReallySuppress /q /L*V+ "C:\Windows \Temp\SkyhighLogs\SCPInstall.log"

NOTE: The system reboot is suppressed at the end of the installation when you specify REBOOT=ReallySuppress. To force the system to reboot, use SCPInstaller.x86.msi REBOOT=Force /q /L*V+ "C:\Windows\Temp \SkyhighLogs\SCPInstall.log"

The Skyhigh client proxy software is installed on a Windows-based computer.
