K-Lite v2.7 is an addon tool for KMD 2.7.x. It adds many features missing from the offical KMD client, such as an intelligent download accelerator, auto-search more, fake file analyzer, IP blocker, and a fresh new look. It also contains some very handy tools as well as neutralising all ad and spyware.

Why the FSP K-Lite installer and not the K-Lite installer?

  • No need to download two installer files!
  • Easy to install: No hassle with two installers!
  • You can't go wrong: No installing Kazaa and its adware by mistake!
  • The total download size for the installer has been reduced by nearly 50%!
  • The total download time for the installer has been reduced by nearly 50%!
  • The FSP K-Lite full installer simply is the smallest K-Lite full installer!

The only limitation to FSP K-Lite is you must install K-Lite in the default program folder "C:\Program Files\K-Lite" (where C is the letter used for your HDD). So just click next at the program folder selection.

What's the difference between K-Lite and KMD?

What makes K-Lite better is that it contains no spyware, adware or advertising. But also a lot of extra functionality has been added. KHancer is the main part of K-Lite and adds most of the extra functionality and is also 100% intergrated into the Kazaa interface, meaning there's no other windows open like other Kazaa addons.

K-Lite Installation Instructions

If you aren't going to download the FSP K-Lite installer you can follow these 25 steps to install K-Lite with the official installer. Using the official installer has no real advantage (see above). Download the K-Lite installer AND the KMD 2.7.2 installer (7.49 MB). Then use KShield to install K-Lite. KShield will block everything from being installed but the essential files needed to run K-Lite (this includes the large load of adware included in the KMD installer). You MUST first execute KShield and NOT KMD.
Below are step-by-step install instructions:

  • Download K-Lite (2.27MB) and download kazaa272_en.exe (7.49MB) then execute "klite27rc1.exe" and click Next.
  • Read the License Agreement, click "I accept the agreement" if you agree and click Next.
  • Read through what's in K-Lite (not necessary, but makes you go in awe) and click Next.
  • Select the folder where you wish to install and click Next.
  • Select what you wish to install.
  • Select where you want to have your Start folder for K-Lite. (You can also select to not have one.)
  • Choose to have K-Lite and a Shared Folder shortcut on your desktop or in the Quick Launch (in the toolbar next to Start) or set access rights for those with "limited" (or user level) account privilages.
  • The installer will go over and confirm with you the items you want installed. Read this, you may want to go back and make changes if you want/need to! When finished, click Install.
  • If you are starting with a fresh install, K-Lite should see that kazaa.exe is in the folder. Assuming you already downloaded the "kazaa272_en.exe" file in the beginning, click Start KShield and continue to the next instruction.
  • Get ready to start the KMD setup and hit Start KMD Setup.
  • A window will popup asking for the "kazaa272_en.exe" file. Make sure it is EXACTLY named like this or it will not be accepted! Select the file and click "Open".
  • After selecting the file, KShield will open "kazaa272_en.exe". However, this will be a spyware and adware free installation because of KShield. Click Next.
  • Agree to install the software and click Next.
  • Again, agree with GAIN and click Next. GAIN will not be installed anyway.
  • Now we are at the point of where to extract "kazaa.exe" and "magnet.exe" to. A message to tell you to install it in the same directory as K-Lite.
  • Click Browse to look for your K-Lite folder. (NOT the shortcut)
  • Click Next after you have completed finding and selecting your K-Lite folder.
  • Uncheck ALL the boxes, you won't need it, and click Next.
  • Now you will get an overview of what Kazaa will install, just click Next. The info shown is inaccurate, KShield will block everything from being installed but the essential files needed to run K-Lite (this includes spy and adware).
  • Everything is now set-up using the Kazaa installer. Click Finish.
  • KShield should confirm that everything went well. Click Start K-Lite.
  • Welcome to the Configuration screen. Select a name you want to use on the network.
  • Select where you want to have your "Shared Folder". All downloads will go here and files here will be shared on the network. Click Next afterwards.
  • Select the type of connection that best describes yours. If you don't know, just keep it at N/A, it should still work. Click Next.
  • Congratulations! You have completed everything! Click Finish and give yourself a pat on the back (or you can ask someone else to, but do expect an unusual response from them).
  • What's the difference between K-Lite and KMD?
    What makes K-Lite better is that it contains no spyware, adware or advertising. But also a lot of extra functionality has been added. KHancer is the main part of K-Lite and adds most of the extra functionality and is also 100% intergrated into the Kazaa interface, meaning there's no other windows open like other Kazaa addons.

    As I mentioned in the other fastrack sections, don't bother. If you want files use bittorrent.
