You can activate Kaspersky Security for Windows Server by using an activation code.

When activating the application with this method, Kaspersky Security for Windows Server sends data to the activation server to verify the entered code:

  • If the activation code verification is successful, the application is activated.
  • If the activation code verification fails, the corresponding notification is displayed. In this case, you must contact the software vendor from whom you purchased your Kaspersky Security for Windows Server license.
  • If the number of activations with the activation code is exceeded, the corresponding notification is displayed. The application activation procedure is interrupted, and the application suggests that you contact Kaspersky Technical Support.

To activate Kaspersky Security for Windows Server using an activation code:

  1. In the Application Console tree, expand the Licensing node.
  2. In the details pane of the Licensing node, click the Add activation code link.
  3. In the window that opens, enter the activation code in the Activation code field.
    • If you want to use the activation code as an additional key, enable Use as additional key check box.
    • If you want to view the license information, click the Show license information button; it will be displayed in the License information group box.
  4. Click OK.

    Kaspersky Security for Windows Server sends information about the applied activation code to the activation server.

Viewing licensing information

Information about the current license is displayed in the details pane of the Kaspersky Security node of the Application Console. A key can have the following statuses:

  • Checking the key status – Kaspersky Security for Windows Server is checking the applied key file or activation code and waiting for a response about the current key status.

Renewing the license

By default, when the license has 14 days remaining before expiration, Kaspersky Security for Windows Server notifies you about the approaching expiration. In this case, the License expiration date status is highlighted in yellow in the details pane of the Kaspersky Security node.

You can renew the license before the expiration date using an additional key. This ensures that your device remains protected after expiration of the current license and before you activate the application with a new license.

To renew a license:

  1. Obtain a new activation code or a key file.
  2. In the Application Console tree, open the Licensing node.
  3. Perform one of the following actions in the details pane of the Licensing node:
    • If you want to renew a license using a key file:
      1. Click the Add key link.
      2. In the window that opens, click the Browse button.
      3. Select a new key file with the .key extension.
      4. Select the Use as additional key check box.
    • If you want to renew a license using an activation code:
      1. Click the Add activation code link.
      2. Enter the purchased activation code in the window that opens.
      3. Select the Use as additional key check box.

    An Internet connection is required to apply an activation code.

  4. Click OK.

The additional key will be added and automatically applied upon expiration of the current Kaspersky Security for Windows Server license.
