With most deployment methods, the Agent is installed automatically on the targeted devices. Manual installation is only necessary if the automated installation fails, or the Agent was emailed to a device. In that case, the installer must be launched manually.

Uninstalling and reinstalling the Agent can become necessary as part of troubleshooting a device. The process is different depending on the operating system of the endpoint. Refer to:
