Kaspersky Endpoint Security 12 for Windows

Change application components

8 July 2024

ID 181472

During installation of the application, you can select the components that will be available. You can change the available application components in the following ways:

  • Locally, by using the Setup Wizard.

    Application components are changed by using the normal method for a Windows operating system, which is through the Control Panel. Run the Application Setup Wizard and select the option to change the application components that are available. Follow the instructions on the screen.

  • Remotely using Kaspersky Security Center.

    The Change application components task allows you to change the components of Kaspersky Endpoint Security after the application is installed.

Please take into account the following special considerations when changing the application components:

  • On computers running Windows Server, you cannot install all components of Kaspersky Endpoint Security (for example, the Adaptive Anomaly Control component is not available).
  • If the hard drives on your computer are protected by Full Disk Encryption (FDE), you cannot remove the Full Disk Encryption component. To remove the Full Disk Encryption component, decrypt all the hard drives of the computer.
  • If the computer has encrypted files (FLE) or the user uses encrypted removable drives (FDE or FLE), it will be impossible to access the files and removable drives after the Data Encryption components are removed. You can access the files and removable drives by reinstalling the Data Encryption components.

Advanced Settings of the task

Parameter

Description

Remove incompatible third-party applications

The list of incompatible applications can be viewed in incompatible.txt, which is included in the distribution kit. If incompatible applications are installed on the computer, installation of Kaspersky Endpoint Security ends with an error.

Use password for modifying the set of application components

Administrators typically enable Password protection to restrict access to Kaspersky Endpoint Security. That is, to modify the selection of application components, you must enter credentials of a user that has the Remove / modify / restore the application permission. For example, you can use the KLAdmin account.

Use Azure WVD compatibility mode

This feature allows correctly displaying the state of the Azure virtual machine in the Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack Platform console. To monitor the performance of the computer, Kaspersky Endpoint Security sends telemetry to KATA servers. Telemetry includes an ID of the computer (Sensor ID). Azure WVD compatibility mode allows assigning a permanent unique Sensor ID to these virtual machines. If the compatibility mode is turned off, the Sensor ID can change after the computer is restarted because of how Azure virtual machines work. This can cause duplicates of virtual machines to appear on the console.

Use the password to uninstall Kaspersky Endpoint Agent and Kaspersky Security for Windows Server

Administrators typically enable Password protection in settings of these tasks to restrict access to Kaspersky Endpoint Agent (KEA) and Kaspersky Security for Windows Server (KSWS). That is, if you are migrating from the [KES+KEA] configuration to [KES+built-in agent], or if you are migrating from KSWS to KES, you must enter a password to remove these applications.
