The Riprep utility is designed for preparing client PCs for deployment. It allows to quickly perform operations on a client PC necessary for deployment. 

The Riprep utility is located in Kaspersky Security Center installation folder (C:\Program Files\Kaspersky Lab\Kaspersky Security Center, by default) on a PC with installed Administration server.

Riprep allows to:

  • Disable Simple File Sharing. This option is not available for the following operating systems: Microsoft Windows Vista, Microsoft Windows 7 and  Microsoft Windows Server 2008.

  • Start the Server service.

  • Create an account having all permissions required to perform remote installation.

  • Disable User account control (UAC). This option is available for the following operating systems only: Microsoft Windows Vista, Microsoft Windows 7 and  Microsoft Windows Server 2008.

  • Open the following ports which is necessary to be able to install applications:
    • TCP 139, 445, 13000, 14000, 18000
    • UDP 137, 138, 13000

InformationThe Riprep utility is incompatible with Microsoft Windows Home Edition.

The utility should be run on a client PC which you want to prepare for deployment under an account having local administrator permissions for that PC.

The utility has a GUI, and can be managed using command prompt as well.

Managing the utility via GUI:

  1. Copy the file riprep.exe to a client PC and run it.
  2. Check necessary box(es).

During account creation an additional window will appear prompting to enter login and password:
