This article provides information on how to install the LanGuard Agent manually and connect/register the deployed Agent with the LanGuard server.
Target machine(s) should meet a minimum set of system requirements.

LanGuard12Agent.msiin the Agent subfolder of the LanGuard server main installation folder, by default
C:\Program Files (x86)\GFI\LanGuard 12\Agent.
LanGuard12Agent.msifile to the target machine.
From a Command Prompt on the target machine run the following command to install the agent manually:
LanGuard12agent.msi /qn GFIINSTALLID=[Installation ID from Crmiini.xml] /norestart /L*v %temp%\LANSS_v12_AgentKitLog.csv
LanGuard12agent.msi /qn GFIINSTALLID=1eabbf7e-c0de-45fa-92f8-bab3e29d2f1b /norestart /L*v %temp%\LANSS_v12_AgentKitLog.csv
Ensure the success of the LanGuard operations on the client machine by configuring the required environmental settings and verifying the required network connectivity and security permissions.
In order for the GFI LanGuard server to be aware of the new agent and register this deployment, now the agent installation needs to be manually triggered from the LanGuard server console.
Any errors during the process will be logged to the
The installation results can be checked in the LANSS_v12_AgentKitLog.csv log. If you register the new agent with the LanGuard server its status can be verified in the Dashboard > Overview by clicking on the client machine in the Computer Tree and looking at the Agent Status window.
