Installing Light Agent for Windows via Kaspersky Security Center

You can install Light Agent for Windows remotely from the administrator's workstation using Kaspersky Security Center.

Installation is performed by using the Remote Installation Wizard or the remote installation task (for details, please refer to the Kaspersky Security Center documentation). Installation requires an installation package that contains the group of settings necessary for installing the application.

The Kaspersky Security Components Installation Wizard automatically creates an installation package while installing the Kaspersky Security management plug-ins and Integration Server on the computer where the Kaspersky Security Center Administration Server is installed. This installation package is stored in the Kaspersky Security Center Administration Console tree in the AdvancedRemote installationInstallation packages folder with the name Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 5.1 Light Agent for Windows (5.1.X.X), where 5.1.X.X is the application version number.

By default, only the File Anti-Virus component is installed on a virtual machine running a Microsoft Windows server operating system.

You can use the installation package that was automatically created by the Kaspersky Security Components Installation Wizard, or manually create an installation package.

In the properties of the installation package, you can change the Light Agent for Windows installation settings or fine-tune the installation settings (for example, change the set of installed Light Agent components).

Prior to beginning installation to the virtual machine, the virtual machine is searched for applications that could cause conflicts with Light Agents if allowed to run concurrently, and those applications are removed. If such applications could not be automatically removed, installation ends with an error.
