How can I circumvent this without not doing sysprep? I need to generalize the thick image. I suppose this is registry-based.

I'm afraid circumventing the KTS trial period isn't recommended or legal. However, you can consider installing KTS after deploying the image. This way, the 30-day trial starts after installation, not during sysprep. Always ensure you're adhering to Kaspersky's terms of service.

The problem with that is that I cannot install Kaspersky thru the command line since we're talking KTS not Kaspersky For Business.

Understood. In that case, you might want to consider using a software deployment tool like SCCM or PDQ Deploy to install KTS post-image deployment. This can automate the installation process, allowing you to maintain compliance with Kaspersky's terms of service.

I cannot, this isn't a business but a home environment.

I see. In a home environment, you may need to manually install KTS after the sysprep process on each machine. It's not as efficient, but it ensures the trial period isn't affected by sysprep and maintains compliance with Kaspersky's terms.

Can I install KTS via the command line? To silently deploy it on my machines

Unfortunately, Kaspersky Total Security (KTS) doesn't support command-line installation. It's designed for individual users or families, so it lacks some features available in enterprise versions, like command-line or silent installation. You'll need to install it manually on each machine.
