Transferring application installation results to Kaspersky Security Center

After you have created the application installation package, you can configure it so that all diagnostic information about the results of the application installation is transferred to Kaspersky Security Center. For installation packages of Kaspersky applications, transfer of diagnostic information about the application installation results is configured by default, and no additional configuration is required.

To configure the transfer of diagnostic information about the results of application installation to Kaspersky Security Center:

  1. Navigate to the folder of the installation package created by using Kaspersky Security Center for the selected application. The folder can be found in the shared folder specified during Kaspersky Security Center installation.
  2. Open the file with the .kpd or .kud extension for editing (for example, in the Microsoft Windows Notepad editor).

    The file has the format of a regular configuration .ini file.

  3. Add the following lines to the file:

    [SetupProcessResult]

    Wait=1

    This command configures Kaspersky Security Center to wait for setup completion for the application, for which the installation package is created, and to analyze the installer return code. If you have to disable the transfer of diagnostic data, set the value of the Wait key to 0.

  4. Add the description of return codes for a successful installation. To do this, add the following lines to the file:

    [SetupProcessResult_SuccessCodes]

    <return code>=[<description>]

    <return code 1>=[<description>]

    Square brackets contain optional keys.

    Syntax for the lines:

    • <return code>. Any number corresponding to the installer return code. The number of return codes can be arbitrary.
    • <description>. Text description of the installation result. The description can be omitted.
  5. Add the description of return codes for a failed installation. To do this, add the following lines to the file:

    [SetupProcessResult_ErrorCodes]

    <return code>=[<description>]

    <return code 1>=[<description>]

    The syntax of these lines is identical to the syntax for the lines containing successful setup return codes.

  6. Close the .kpd or .kud file by saving all changes.

Finally, the results of installation of the user-defined application will be registered in the logs of Kaspersky Security Center and then shown in the list of events, in reports, and in task run logs.
