Creating an installation package

An installation package is a set of files created for remote installation of a Kaspersky application via Kaspersky Security Center. The installation package contains a range of settings needed to install the application and get it running immediately after installation. The installation package is created using files with the .kpd and .kud extensions included in the application distribution kit. Kaspersky Endpoint Security installation package is common for all supported Windows versions and processor architecture types.

Protection components

In this section, you can select the application components that will be available. You can change the set of application components at a later time by using the Change application components task. The BadUSB Attack Prevention component, Endpoint Agent component, and data encryption components are not installed by default. These components can be added in the installation package settings.

Installation settings

Add application location to environment variable %PATH%. You can add the installation path to the %PATH% variable for convenient use of the command line interface.

Do not protect the installation process. Installation protection includes protection against replacement of the distribution package with malicious applications, blocking access to the installation folder of Kaspersky Endpoint Security, and blocking access to the system registry section containing application keys. However, if the application cannot be installed (for example, when performing remote installation with the help of Windows Remote Desktop), you are advised to disable protection of the installation process.

Ensure compatibility with Citrix PVS. You can enable support of Citrix Provisioning Services to install Kaspersky Endpoint Security to a virtual machine.

Path to application installation folder. You can change the installation path of Kaspersky Endpoint Security on a client computer. By default, the application is installed in the folder %ProgramFiles%\Kaspersky Lab\Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows.

Configuration file. You can upload a file that defines the settings of Kaspersky Endpoint Security. You can create a configuration file in the local interface of the application.
