in sophos 6, user will need to put a server address to pull the virus 
updates. i'm wondering if this could done with unattended installation. i 
was trying to record the answer files by doing this in run mode: 
C:\savxpsa\setup.exe /a /r /f1C:\setup.iss, but i couldn't get the answer 
file to work..

		<check type="uninstall" condition="exists" path="Sophos AntiVirus" />
		<check type="uninstall" condition="exists" path="Sophos AutoUpdate" />

		<install cmd='\SERVERNAME\wpkg\software\savxpsa\setup.exe -updp
"WEBSITE_ADDRESS" -mng no /qb'>

		<exit code="0" />

when i run the code above, it needs user interaction so my goal is to be 
unattended installation.
