The article is a detailed guide on using the Kaspersky Update Utility dedicated to users not having experience with configuring and using the utility.

  1. Download and extract the archived utility into a folder (we are going to use /home/user1 for example):

    # tar -zxvf UpdateUtility_lin_en_2.0.1.1707.tar.gz

  2. The utility folder contains several interactable files:

    • UpdateUtility-Console – runs the console version of the utility

    • UpdateUtility-Gui – runs the utility GUI

    • updater.ini – configuration file

    • ReleaseNotes.txt – notes concerning current utility version
  3. Let us use the GUI for example: execute the UpdateUtility-Gui file, and click the Applications button:

  4. Select Kaspersky Lab applications that you want to update:

  5. Click OK and then Settings button in the home screen. Go to the Download tab and assign temporary and updates folders:

  6. Click Start in the home screen and wait for the download process to complete.

  7. Once the download is complete, an Updates subfolder will appear in the configured folder. You can copy this folder on a removable drive or share it, over FTP or SMB, for example. The Kaspersky Lab software that you have installed will be getting updates from that folder.

  • Updating in a local network disconnected from Internet

    Share the Updates folder and select it as the updates source in the Kaspersky Lab application that you are going to update:

  • Updating locally (using a removable drive)

    Copy the Updates folder to a removable hard disk or a flash drive, connect it to a computer that has Kaspersky Lab software installed, and select the Updates folder on the removable drive as update source in the Kaspersky Lab application settings.
