Creating a Light Agent for Windows installation package

Prior to creating an installation package, you need to unpack the distribution package of Light Agent for Windows into a folder that can be accessed by the Kaspersky Security Center Administration Server.

To create a Light Agent for Windows installation package:

  1. Open Kaspersky Security Center Administration Console.
  2. In the console tree, select AdvancedRemote installationInstallation packages.
  3. Click the Create installation package button to start the New Package Wizard.
  4. In the wizard window that opens, click the Create installation package for a Kaspersky application button.
  5. In the window that opens, enter the name of the installation package and proceed to the next step of the wizard.
  6. Select the distribution kit of Kaspersky Security. To do so, open the standard window by using the Browse button and specify the path to the ksvla.kud file from the Light Agent for Windows distribution package.

    After the file is selected, the application name will be displayed in the Wizard window.

    The Copy updates from storage to installation package check box is selected by default in the Select application installation package for installation window of the wizard. Kaspersky Security Center includes in the installation package all Light Agent for Windows database and module updates that have been loaded into the Kaspersky Security Center storage. After the Light Agent for Windows component has been installed, databases and modules of Light Agent for Windows are updated automatically on the virtual machine.

    Go to the next step in the wizard.

  7. Read the End User License Agreement concluded between you and Kaspersky, and the Privacy Policy describing the handling and transmission of data.

    All application usage conditions listed in the End User License Agreement for Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 5.1 Light Agent also apply to Kaspersky Security updates: Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 5.1.1 Light Agent and Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 5.1.2 Light Agent.

    To continue creating the installation package, you must confirm that you have fully read and accept the terms of the End User License Agreement and the Privacy Policy. To confirm, select both check boxes in the window of the Wizard.

    Go to the next step in the wizard.

  8. The wizard downloads the files required for installation of the application to the Administration Server of Kaspersky Security Center. Wait for the download to finish.
  9. Do the following:
    • Specify the Light Agent components for Windows that you want to install. Components for installation are grouped into two blocks: Components for installation on server OS and Components for installation on desktop OS. Select the check boxes for the components that you want to install.
    • Enter the path to the installation folder, if necessary. By default, Light Agent is installed to the following folder depending on the operating system:
      • %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Kaspersky Lab\Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 5.1 Light Agent\ – for 64-bit operating systems.
      • %ProgramFiles%\Kaspersky Lab\Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 5.1 Light Agent\ – for 32-bit operating systems.

    Go to the next step in the wizard.

  10. The wizard creates an installation package and displays a notification that the process has been completed. Finish the wizard.

The created installation package is stored in the Kaspersky Security Center Administration Console tree in the AdvancedRemote installationInstallation packages folder. You can use one and the same installation package multiple times.

After creating 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).
