Installing Light Agent for Windows
January 10, 2024
The Light Agent for Windows component can be installed on a virtual machine in several ways:
- Remotely from the administrator's workstation using Kaspersky Security Center.
- From the command line.
- Locally using the Installation Wizard.
- Remotely from the administrator's workstation using Active Directory Group Policies.
It is recommended to install Light Agent for Windows on virtual machine templates locally using the Installation Wizard or remotely using Kaspersky Security Center.
Before installing the Light Agent for Windows (including remotely), it is recommended to close all applications running in the operating system of the virtual machine.
During installation, Light Agent configures the settings of Windows Firewall to allow incoming and outgoing traffic for the avp.exe process. If a domain policy is used for Windows Firewall, you must configure rules for incoming and outgoing connections for the avp.exe process in the domain policy. If a different firewall is used, you must configure a rule for connections for the avp.exe process for the firewall. When started for the first time after installation, the Firewall component is enabled, which causes the Windows Firewall to be disabled.
Installation and operation of the AMSI Protection component is not supported on virtual machines with guest OS version lower than Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016.
