To install Huntress on clients, just put in your Account Key and Organization Key in the remediation.


$scriptblock = {
#Define Registry Location for the 64-bit and 32-bit Uninstall keys
$uninstReg = @('HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall','HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall')

$appName = 'Huntress Agent'

# Get all entries that match our criteria. DisplayName matches $appname
$installed = @(Get-ChildItem $uninstReg -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue | Get-ItemProperty | Where-Object { ($_.DisplayName -match $appName) })

# If any matches were present, $installed will be populated. If none, then $installed is NULL and this IF statement will be false.
# The return value here is what the ScriptBlock will send back to us after we run it.
# 1 for Non-Compliant, 0 for Compliant
if ($installed) {
return 0
} else { return 1 }

$exitCode = & "$env:SystemRoot\sysnative\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe" -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -WindowStyle Hidden -NoProfile -NonInteractive -Command $scriptblock
Exit $exitCode


$acctkey = 'YOUR_ACCOUNT_KEY'
$orgkey = 'YOUR_ORG_KEY'
(New-Object Net.WebClient).DownloadFile("$acctkey",$env:temp+'/HuntressInstaller.exe');iex $env:temp"\HuntressInstaller.exe /S /ACCT_KEY=$acctkey /ORG_KEY=$orgkey"
