IssueThis article explains how to complete a silent installation of the RSA Authentication Agent 7.3 and 7.4 for Windows. The system will not require reboot after the installation.
  1. Download the RSA Authentication Agent 7.3 or 7.4 for Windows and extract it.
  2. Run the ConfigWizard inside it.
  3. Browse to the package that you want to configure, either RSA_Authentication_Agent_7.x.x\x64 or RSA_Authentication_Agent_7.x.x\x86.
  4. Follow the steps to generate a new configuration file for the agent.
  5. Enable auto-registration if needed, and download the server.cer (Access > Authentication Agents > Download Server Certificate file).
  6. When finished, save the .msi file with the same name as the installation agent; for example, RSA Authentication Agent x64.msi or RSA Authentication Agent x86.msi, depending on which file you chose in step 3.
  7. Open a command prompt as an administrator.
  8. Change directory to the directory where the .msi file was saved.
  9. Run the following command:

msiexec /qn /i "RSA Authentication Agent x64.msi" /norestart /lv Agent-Installation.txt

NotesThe command above generates a log file that is called Agent-Installation.txt in the same location as the .msi file. This can be used to review the logs if any issues occurred during the installation.
