This sort of a continuation of thread https://community.kaspersky.com/kaspersky-internet-security-13/how-to-obtain-an-offline-installer-11454?postid=57171#post57171
asking about offline installer and preventing automatic upgrades.
In that thread I was informed that KIS will now automatically upgrade to version 2021 and beyond. However, only 1 of my 4 computers has done that that upgrade. The other three stayed at 220.127.116.115(m). I’ve confirmed that I do not have the registry hack in place that disables automatic upgrade. Has Kaspersky stopped doing the automatic upgrades or is there something special about these computers? (All are running Win10 2004.)
If Kaspersky has reversed its policy on automatic upgrades I will stop looking for alternatives to KIS.

You can test which of the two will work. I did not analyze why this registry key is constructed using different data types. Perhaps the enterprise version product and the personal version product use different data types for the same registry key. They are quoted together here, who knows why. You can see which of them can take effect in KIS/KAV/KTS 2010 version.
That is going to be difficult to test. One of my copies of KIS 20 automatically upgraded 8 weeks ago. The other 3 have not. I can change the registry on 2 of them, but I won’t know when the lack of upgrade is because of the registry change or just coincidence.
Actually, one of the 3 un-upgraded copies I replaced with a competitive product. If I reinstall KIS 2020 maybe the installation will trigger an automatic upgrade. I’ll try that. Can I add the registry record before reinstalling KIS, or will the installation delete the registry record?
You can add the registry record before reinstalling KIS. Also you can delete avp upgrade task scheme in Windows Administrators Tool → Task scheduler
