NIS10 - What if you want to just download the complete installer?

I would rather just download the installer and not download a stub which will download/automatically install.  So, how do I get the complete NIS10 installer?

Thanks.

PS:  I have a current subscription for NIS.

The downloader will get all the files necessary for the installer for you. It will create a folder for it. You can copy the installer from there.

Hi Mark_Kratzer,

You can also download the trial version of NIS 2010 and save it to your desktop:

http://www.symantec.com/norton/downloads/index.jsp

You'll get the full package that way, and then you just have to type in the product key from your current subscription in order to activate it and make it become a full version.

Does NIS09 need to be uninstalled first to run this or can I just upgrade in place and keep my previous settings and firewall rules?

Thanks.

You should be able to over-install (=install NIS 2010 over NIS 2009) without any problems. The Norton Removal Tool is only recommended if you run into difficulties; it also wipes out your settings AND any other Norton products installed on your computer. In a nutshell: you can upgrade in place :-)

I just finished an upgrade in place and it went off without a hitch.

When I installed NIS 2010 via the update center it did not uninstall NIS09.  It updated it in place. For example, the NIS program shortcut on the desktop was updated to point to the new engine directory, but the create date on the shortcut corresponded to my previous NIS09 install.  Do you also have an earlier create date on your NIS program shortcut on the desktop?  You can tell by right clicking on the shortcut/select properties/select details tab.

Re: NIS10 - What if you want to just download the complete installer?

There seem to be two main/very popular methods of upgrading to NIS 2010:

-upgrading "in place" via the Update Center/over-install

-downloading the full package, now available at the link indicated by Mattp, uninstalling the previous Norton product via removal tool (if there are no other Norton products on the machine), then installing the NIS 2010 package

The first method is the "traditional" one :-) The second one is for those who want a so-called "clean" install.

Yes, I did an update in place. The update did not uninstall NIS2009 but installed over it. That's normal for an update in place. As for the shortcut, it's create date is today.

Are you folks saying that I can only retain my NIS09 settings if I install NIS10 by running NISDownloader.exe as opposed to NIS10UPEN.exe?

Thanks.

You have to use the over-install method, whether you download the full NIS 2010 package and let it remove NIS 2009, or whether you do it via the Upgrade Center. In both cases, NIS 2010 is installing over NIS 2009. The over-install method should automatically transfer your settings from NIS 2009 to NIS 2010.

The removal tool will wipe out your settings and any other Norton products on your machine, so don't use that method :-)

Re: NIS10 - What if you want to just download the complete installer?

Okay, understood.  Thanks.

In reality, I plan to wait for quite a while to do this upgrade.  Actually, I don't believe in being an early adopter.  If they call it NIS 2010, I can wait until next year.  :)

Just use the over-install method, and your settings should be transferred automatically ;-))) That's one of the reasons why the over-install method is so popular. Lol, well, you can wait a little to see how NIS 2010 establishes itself ;-D

Hi Yaso_Kuuhl,

 Any difference between Mattp link > NIS10UPEN 82,628KB and your link > NIS10TBEN 82,593KB

I plan to use Over-install ....just thought I would be prepared and have 10 and NRT on my desktop...couldn't hurt.

So, any difference or ?

The Norton 2010 installed un-installs previous Norton Products, e.g. N.I.S. 2009, beautifully; upon Re-Start, it Finishes the install of Norton 2010 Products, along with the Removal of Norton 2009 Product, and indeed with previous Norton Products.  Via the Norton Download Manager, it should keep all your Settings, so, if you have Identity Safe set-up with Norton 2009 Product, this should be carried over to the Norton 2010 Product with no problems.

HOLD ON!

I have found out the hard way that NIS 2010 does not take over certain settings when installed on top of NIS 2009 -- specifically the antispam allowed and excluded lists built up with NIS 2009 or earlier since NIS 2010 has taken over the system used for the Enterprise versions of Norton Security.

I understand it does take over Passwords and Parental controls  but since I don't use these I can't confirm it.

I used the Update Center jusst because I had assumed that it would take over these settings as before since on one occasion when I did a clean install it took weeks to educate NIS 2009 but NIS 2010 had no provision for education -- it apparently does it all on its own.

See this specific messageRe: When Installing NIS2010 Be PATIENT!   from a Symantec Staffer on this.

Maybe read the thread before you install in case you get worried about the delay in completing the update although by no means everyone has experienced this.

Thanks for clarifying the issue with the settings, huwyngr :-) In that case, if the user does not have any other Norton products on their computer, using the NRT for a "clean" installation would also be an efficient uninstallation method to clear the way for NIS 2010... ;-)

Provided he has no settings to keep although I think even NRT leaves a link to Norton Account and of course a flag if it is a trial installation of limited duration to stop one abusing the time limitation .....

The NRT leaves the product key untouched, that way a Norton product which is installed at a later time can still pick up the key automatically and activate itself.
