The SecureCircle Windows agent can be installed on an endpoint by calling the installer, wherever it may be available on the endpoint. For example, if you placed the installer into a user’s downloads folder, you could run

Install

C:\Users\%username%\Downloads\SecureCircleInstaller.12345.exe

Argument Format

/arg=<details>
  • No spaces between the = sign and the details

Argument Values

/S Silent mode - S must be capitalized, no prompts will appear for the user

/url SecureCircle server url (without https:// prefix) Example: /url=yourserver.yourdomain.com

/inv Invitation ID - Found near the bottom of the Description field when selecting a Circle User. Example: /inv=12345abcde

/proxy more info

/forceupgrade=1 This function will force the upgrade process in the event we release a patch or dot release that is too similar, resulting in the application thinking the same version is already installed.

Example:

C:\Users%username%\Downloads\SecureCircleInstaller.12345.exe /S /inv=098abc123def765ghih456

Uninstall

The SecureCircle Windows agent can be uninstalled from the endpoint by calling

c:\Program Files (x86)\SecureCircle\uninstall.exe

Arguments:

/S Silent mode - S must be capitalized, no prompts will appear for the user
/keepcircleinfo=true retain local caches
/keeplogfiles=true retain agent log files.

Changing either of the “keep” options to =false will result in their respective local caches being removed. Removing the local cache for your Circle information can result in the loss of access to encrypted files until reconnecting with the server. If the Circle no longer exists on the server or the key database no longer holds the keys required to access these, access can be lost permanently.

Example:

c:\Program Files (x86)\SecureCircle\uninstall.exe /S /keepcircleinfo=false /keeplogfiles=true
