Installing the application locally using the Wizard

The interface of the application Setup Wizard consists of a sequence of windows corresponding to the application installation steps.

To install the application or upgrade the application from a previous version using the Setup Wizard:

  1. Copy the distribution kit folder to the user's computer.
  2. Run setup_kes.exe.

The Setup Wizard starts.

Preparing for installation

Before installing Kaspersky Endpoint Security on a computer or upgrading it from a previous version, the following conditions are checked:

If any one of the previous requirements is not met, a relevant notification is displayed on the screen.

If the computer meets the listed requirements, the Setup Wizard searches for Kaspersky applications that could lead to conflicts when running at the same time as the application being installed. If such applications are found, you are prompted to remove them manually.

If the detected applications include previous versions of Kaspersky Endpoint Security, all data that can be migrated (such as activation data and application settings) is retained and used during installation of Kaspersky Endpoint Security 11.7.0 for Windows, and the previous version of the application is automatically removed. This applies to the following application versions:

Kaspersky Endpoint Security components

During the installation process, you can select the components of Kaspersky Endpoint Security that you want to install. The File Threat Protection component is a mandatory component that must be installed. You cannot cancel its installation.

By default, all application components are selected for installation except the following components:

You can change the available application components after the application is installed. To do so, you need to run the Setup Wizard again and choose to change the available components.

Advanced settings

Protect the application 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.

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.
