Download Links for Shavlik Protect Installation Files

Version 4



    This document is meant to help administrators stay up to date with the current download links for install and upgrade files for all currently supported versions of Shavlik Protect.




    With each release of a new patch for Shavlik Protect, we release two installer files for our administrators: an patch upgrade and a full installer. The upgrade version is a lighter version of the installer, containing only the files needed to take the previously current version of Protect and upgrade it to the current patch. The full installer is meant for new administrators or for users who are seeking to do a full install on a machine that does not currently have Protect installed and includes other required components like SQL Express.


    Customers can obtain all download files at our downloads page which is always up-to-date:


    Links are provided below, for each current version for 9.0 and 9.1, with the full installer and patch upgrade versions designated:


    Shavlik Protect 9.1.0 + Patch 2

    Installation Notes: The Shavlik Protect Console must be installed on a 64 bit operating system that is Windows 7\2008 R2 or later.

We recommend that new users install 9.1, and not 9.0. Shavlik has released a patch for Shavlik Protect 9.0.
