How to create a deployment package for Kaspersky using the Administration Kit version 6.0.1710

Download the Anti-Virus software from Kaspersky that you wish to deploy. In my instance it is Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 for Windows Servers Enterprise Edition.

Double click the executable and click ‘Next’ at the Welcome screen



Select a location or accept a default where the setup files will be extracted to.

The executable files are saved locally but the deployment package process configures and uploads a copy to the Administration server as part of the package creation.


The files are extracted and when complete you may be prompted with a ‘Setup’ window. This can be cancelled as we just require the extracted files.


Open Kaspersky Administration Kit. Locate ‘Remote Install’, right click and select ‘New’ and ‘Installation Package’


Click ‘Next’ at the Welcome wizard and select a name for your new package and click ‘Next’.


Select ’Make Kaspersky Lab’s application package’ and click on the ‘Browse’ button


Locate the kavws.kpd file whose location varies by product. Depending on the product and version there may be 2 directories containing the kavws.kpd file especially where it contains an x86 and x64 version.


When the file has been selected click ‘Next’


Select the license key and click ‘Next’

At the ‘Loading Installer Package’ select ‘Next’


When the package has been uploaded click ‘Finish’


Right click your newly created package in Administration Kit and select ‘Properties’


Here you can set the settings for the deployed application and determine what components are deployed and whether or not to force an OS reboot after installation.
