Use the following procedure to install Carbon Black EDR Windows sensors on endpoints.


  1. In the Carbon Black EDR console, on the navigation bar, click Sensors.
  2. In the Groups panel, select the sensor group for the new sensor to join.
    The Download Sensor Installer drop-down list appears.
  3. From the Download Sensor Installer list, select one of the following to download a ZIP file that contains the package installer:
    • To install a single sensor only, select either Windows Standalone EXE - Latest Version or Windows Standalone EXE - <specific version>.
    • To install one or more sensors, select Windows MSI for GPO Installation - Latest Version or Windows MSI for GPO Installation - <specific version>.

      where <specific version> is the sensor version that the group’s upgrade policy specifies for automatic updates. This method is useful for bringing on a new host and installing the same sensor version group-wide.

  4. For a standalone installation, do the following:
    1. Copy the downloaded <install package name>.zip file to the Windows endpoint.
    2. Extract the contents of the <install package name>.zip file to a temporary folder.
    3. Double-click the file CarbonBlackClientSetup.exe and follow the installation prompts.
  5. For the Windows MSI for GPO installation, follow the instructions in the GPO_README.txt file, which is included in the downloaded <install package name>.zip file.


After the installation is complete, the Windows sensor is installed and running. The Sensors page in the Carbon Black EDR console shows the sensor as registered and checking into the Carbon Black EDR server.
