Before installing Network Agent on the devices running Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 or Windows Small Business Server 2011 Premium Add-on, make sure that you have installed the security update for Windows 7 (KB3063858).

In Microsoft Windows XP, Network Agent might not perform some operations correctly.

You can install or update Network Agent for Windows XP in Microsoft Windows XP only. The supported editions of Microsoft Windows XP and their corresponding versions of the Network Agent are listed in the list of supported operating systems. You can download the required version of the Network Agent for Microsoft Windows XP from this page.

We recommend that you install the same version of the Network Agent for Linux as Kaspersky Security Center.
