Changes in version 3.5.1.4

From version 3.5.1.4 the underlying regexp engine has been changed to ECMAScript. These should run fine out of the box with the new engine, unless a unique change has been made in the old config files. For more information on the ECMA scripting, follow this link: http://www.cplusplus.com/reference/regex/ECMAScript/

Normal GUI Installation

The MyPass Password Filter can be installed in GUI mode which is described and illustrated in the following these installation steps.

To start the installation, you must be logged on as a user with administrative privileges. Then start the installer or open a command prompt as Administrator, FastPass-PasswordFilter.msi. This will pop up the InstallShield Wizard program.

After a few moments, the program will automatically proceed to the following screen.

Click the “Next” button to continue and for the “End User License Agreement” screen to be displayed.

Click the “Next” button to proceed. This will take you to the “Installation Confirmation” screen.

Click the “Install” button to proceed. This will initiate the installation process and pop up the “Installation Progress” screen. If the installation was successful, the wizard will automatically shift to the “Rule File Path” screen.

To close the InstallShield Wizard, click the “Finish” button.

Please note: Since it is required to activate the filter in the Windows LSA service, a reboot of the server will then be required.

Silent install using command line options

The MyPass Password Filter can be installed in silent mode. Please note that the Visual C component will NOT automatically install as in GUI mode. Please make sure that the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86) is installed (which can be found here http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5555) on the system prior to installing the package in silent mode.

The syntax for this is as shown in the following.

/s /v””

Syntax explained:

  • /s – Indicates that the installer will run in silent mode.
  • /v”/qn” – This argument is used to specify the values of public properties for the silent installation.
  • /v”/qn INSTALLDIR=C:\Program files (x86)\PasswordFilter” – Passes the installation directory value to the installer while running silently.

If you want to install the password filter using the default installation directory %ProgramFiles%\FastPassCorp\PasswordFilter, then execute the following command:

FastPass-PasswordFilter.msi/s /v”/qn”

Or if you want to specify the installation directory, execute the following command:

FastPass-PasswordFilter.msi/s /v”/qn INSTALLDIR=C:\PasswordFilter”

Please note: Since it is required to activate the filter in the Windows LSA service, a reboot of the server is required.
