In order to install Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2012 from the command prompt, do the following:
  1. Download the distributive of Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2012.
  2. Unpack all files from the downloaded distributive using any application to work with archives (for example, 7-zip). Find the setup.exe file.
  3. On the computer where you want to install Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2012, run the command prompt:
    • in the left bottom part of the screen click Start 
    • select (All) Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt

  1. Drag and drop the setup.exe file to the Command Prompt window. The path to the file will be added.
  2. In the Command Prompt window you can enter a command to launch the executable file setup.exe with various installation parameters and properties. The file can be launched with the following keys:
  • main parameters: 
    •  /s –silent mode (no dialog windows are displayed during the installation) (the correct syntax in the command prompt is the following: setup.exe /s)  
    • /p <property>=VALUE> – specify an installation property (the correct syntax in the command prompt is the following: setup.exe /p "ALLOWREBOOT=1 SKIPPRODUCTCHECK=1")  
    •  /h – hint

  • additional parameters:  
    • /a – administrative installation (installation files are copied to the defined network folder) (the correct syntax in the command prompt is the following: setup.exe /a"Z:\Kaspersky Lab")  
    • /x – uninstall the product (the correct syntax in the command prompt is the following: setup.exe /x
  • most significant installation properties: 
    • ACTIVATIONCODE=<VALUE> – activation code of the product 
       
    • ALLOWREBOOT=1 – allow reboot if necessary (the correct syntax in the command prompt is the following: setup.exe /p "ALLOWREBOOT=1")  
    • INSTALLDIR=<VALUE> – installation directory (the correct syntax in the command prompt is the following: setup.exe /p "INSTALLDIR=C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\kav2012"
    • KLPASSWD=<VALUE> – set up a password to various product functions (the correct syntax in the command prompt is the following: setup.exe /p "KLPASSWD=12345678"). If the value of the KLPASSWDAREA parameter is not set, then the default password scope is used:
      • change product settings 
      • finish product work
    • KLPASSWDAREA=[SET|EXIT|PARCTL|UNINST] – password scope set by the KLPASSWD parameter: 
      • SET – changes product settings 
      • EXIT – finishes product work 
      • UNINST – uninstalls the product
      Information Multiple values of the parameter are entered through a semicolon ";".  

     

    • SELFPROTECTION=1 – enables product self-defense during the installation process (the correct syntax in the command prompt is the following: setup.exe /p "SELFPROTECTION=1") . 
    • SKIPPRODUCTCHECK=1 – skips product check for incompatible software with Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2012 products (the correct syntax in the command prompt is the following: setup.exe /p "SKIPPRODUCTCHECK=1").

WarningUsing the SKIPPRODUCTCHECK=1 value may cause unpredictable results in cases if other incompatible third-party software is installed. If you use the value, you take upon yourself all resposibilities concerning unpredictable causes.

Information The search is performed for the products which Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2012 always detects but does not delete automatically (the detected software should be removed manually).

For example, the following command setup.exe /p "ALLOWREBOOT=1 SKIPPRODUCTCHECK=1" entered and executed during the installation of Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2012 allows computer reboot and skips search for incompatible software.

  1. After you have entered the command in the command prompt, press the Enter key on the keyboard. As a result installation of Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2012 is launched. 
  2. Follow the instructions of the Setup Wizard and finish the installation of Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2012.
