I would like to package an installation of the NetGenius Service through PDQ Deploy. I need to know the command line interface installation options to only install the service on remote computers.

Thanks!

It would be this command line:
netgenius_setup.exe /COMPONENTS="svc" /SILENT
This will only install the service component, i.e. without GUI.

What is the silent remote uninstall CLI command?

netgenius_setup.exe /COMPONENTS="svc" /SILENT worked to install, but I also need to be able to uninstall remotely from the command line in our next phase of testing.

For unattended uninstall please use this command:
C:\Program Files\NetGenius\unins000.exe /SILENT /NORESTART
Note that there will be a user prompt about removing settings and data.

To prevent this message box from being displayed, please install over the latest build. In that latest build, you can use the /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES parameter like this:
"C:\Program Files\NetGenius\unins000.exe" /SILENT /NORESTART /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES
In this case, the settings and data will be deleted.

Hello,
I downloaded and installed the latest build of NetGenius, but when I use the /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES parameter, I get this message from Windows 10 User Account Control:

Do you want to allow this app from an unknown publisher to make changes to your device?
unins000.exe

Can we stop this box from appearing for the end users?

You see those Windows UAC dialogs because the uninstaller (same as the installer) needs administrative privileges for writing in C:\Program Files.
This can be solved by launching the uninstaller as administrator.
