    This article covers the command line switches used by setupmirror.exe.
    These switches are commonly used when trying to uninstall the mirror driver on a machine that already has an agent installed?
    The standard location for setupmirror.exe is - C:\Program Files\LANDesk\LDClient\setupmirror.exe
    The command line structure and switches follow this format:
         Setupmirror.exe [-u | -noblanker ] [-v]


    No switchesInstalls the mirror driver and screen blanking driver. Note: Right now the screen blanking driver does not install on Vista.
    -uUninstalls the mirror driver and screen blanking driver.
    -noblankerinstalls the mirror driver without the screen blanking driver. This is only available in LDMS 8.6 SP1 (and later) and LDMS 8.6.1 (and later).
    -vVerbose mode. For example if you run "setupmirror.exe -u -v" and a reboot is required, you will see a popup window that tells you a reboot is required.


    An addition, there is a checkbox in the agent configuration which allows you to choose whether or not to install the mirror driver and/or the screen blanking driver for new agent installations.
