Installing Kaspersky antivirus on Parallels running Vista

Parallels "comes with" Kaspersky anti-virus software and since I’d had a few issues with AVG on my Vista host I decided that at least Kaspersky must have been tested to run on Parallels. Why do I make these assumptions? 😉 Anyway to install it you simply select the menu item from Parallels. It tells you it will reboot and sure enough it does. But then nothing else happens. I tried this a couple of times and no sign of a Kaspersky tool anywhere. So I tied it again but this time I didn’t allow the autorun to…run. I then right-clicked on the setup exe (kissexe or something) and said ‘run as administrator’. That rebooted but this time it acutally installed. Hurray….good grief.
