Has anyone successfully used PDQ Inventory to deploy Sophos Central anti-virus endpoint?
I've created a package, added the .exe file, and added the /S switch for silent install, but it isn't installing. The install takes 10 minutes when run manually, but my package just says running and doesn't progress.
This similar thread should help you. I would suggest you reach out to your account manager if at all you face any issues.
Thanks, there's some useful stuff in that thread. I've tried using the -q switch but that didn't work
Account manager is hit and miss responding to my emails unfortunately
The other thing the customer tried was uninstalling on Prem Sophos first rather than letting Sophos Central installer do it. I could program some uninstall options into PDQ Deploy. What is the correct order to remove these components in please?

You can uninstall components in the below order, If unable to find one or more components in the list, it may not be installed. Proceed with the next component:
For anyone else trying this
1.) The correct switch is --quiet (note the two dashes)
2.) Make sure the old anti-virus has tamper protection switched off
