I apologize if this is a really stupid question but ...

I want to buy KIS 2019 from Amazon.co.uk (they're not selling KIS 2020 yet) but I noticed that the Kaspersky website only offers you KIS 2020.

Will the KIS 2019 activation code work with KIS 2020 on a clean install, as I have 2016 installed so (I guess) I'd have to uninstall that first and remove that license.

Or do I have to install KIS 2019 offline /en-gb/kis/19.0.0.1088/, add the 2019 activation code, then upgrade internally to 2020?

The Kaspersky website says that a KIS 2019 activation code will only work with KIS 19, 18 & 17, but I keep reading that you get a free upgrade from the current product to the latest. Is that when KIS 2019 is already installed?

Thanks in advance.

You can ask KL Support an offline installer, or download all that structure of folders/files and then run startup.exe...

Hi, months ago I installed Kaspersky Free Antivirus version 2019, now the version is 19.0.0.1088(h).
Does not Kaspersky updates itself to the new 2020 version?
What can I do to upgrade to 2020 version?
Thanks.

Hi, probably not, depending on the country regions...

You can run the KFA2020 version and try to install over the 2019 version, it should work.

If does not work, then You should uninstall 2019 and then install 2020...
