Does anybody know how I can remotely update the version of Wireshark on a numbers of servers and end user devices?

Ideally, a script to run on each machine, or a solution through Qualys would be great.

I do this with BigFix. the actual commands are:

Wireshark-win64-3.6.3.exe /S

I also ensure that I do not have any Wireshark-related processes running, which will cause this to fail. A lot of our Windows servers have dumpcap running in which case it has to be stopped, then the update run, then dumpcap started again.

If the install involves an update of npcap, it will also fail - I have not yet figured out how to automate that.
