Trend Micro Client Packager

The trend micro client packager is used to create trend micro installation packages tailored to your network. It is located in:

C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\OfficeScan\PCCSRV\Admin\Utility\ClientPackager

If you want to create builds that run on windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 you must be running does not support anything higher then Windows XP and 2003.

Also note, although can install 32bit trend on a 64bit version of windows it is not supported and it does cause problems. Ensure that only a 64bit version of trend is installed on a 64bit version of windows.

To find out what version of Client Packager you have right click on ClnPack.exe in the above directory and click properties. Then click the Version tab. looks like this and does not support the new operating systems: looks like this and supports the new operating systems:

To create a package to deploy to workstations or servers open the Client Packager (ClnPack.exe) from the above directory. I recommend changing the package type to MSI because it allows you to deploy it through group policy or manually.

Update Agents allow the pc you deploy this package to to be an update agent and distribute trend updates to other trend agents. This is something you do not normally want so do not tick this. All the other boxes grey out.

If you have a simple trend install always specify this source file unless you know what your doing:

C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\OfficeScan\PCCSRV\ofcscan.ini

Then specify an output file.

Please note if your trend server is running a 32bit version of windows you can only create 32bit MSI files. If your trend server is running a 64bit version of windows, you can only create 64bit MSI files. If you wish to create a 64bit installer on a 32bit windows install specify the package type to be "Setup".

  1. Great info, but had a heck of a time figuring out how to get the Trend Client Packager update you referenced, since it did not come down with the typical "Stand Alone" 150MB service pack 2 update from Trend. It appears you must also download the Product Patch = WFBS_60_SP2_WIN_CriticalPatch_B3154.exe or download the entire 600+MB full Trend Worry Free Business Security file to get the Client Packager update! Also, there was absolutely nothing I could find in the Trend knowledgebase about any of this!!

  2. Hi, When we install TM OfficeScan with client packager, if we have TM Internet Securuty, the client packager uninstall it?

    We're finding for TM support page, but I don't find nothing.

    Thanks in advance,
