How to install Thor on MacOS (silently)

In order to install the Heimdal Security Thor Agent app, you must run the “HeimdalPackage.pkg” file.

The files can be downloaded from here:

- Production:

- Release Candidate:

1. Open the Terminal window (Note: it will ask for your user password) and run the command line below:

cd  /path/to/file/

2. Rename the application's filename with the Heimdal License Key using the command line below:

mv HeimdalPackage-rc.pkg xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx.pkg

(We rename the filename to add the Heimdal License Key to the installer. The filename format should be the following: xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx.pkg , where xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx is your Heimdal License Key)

3. To install Thor, please run the command line below: 

sudo installer -pkg xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx.pkg -target  /path/to/file 

(if the current user has a password, a new step is required to fill in the password so the install process can run)

4. After hittin Enter, the product will be silently installed.
