Deploying Coro on windows endpoints

This guide describes the process for deploying Coro to Windows endpoints.

System requirements

Windows desktop devices must meet the following minimum specifications:

Operating system

  • Windows server 2012 or later.
  • Windows 7 (64 bit) or later.

System resources

  • RAM: 8 GB
  • Free disk space: 126 MB

After deployment, RAM usage for Coro agent is 300-600 MB. CPU usage depends on the operation. For example, during an initial scan or malware scan, CPU usage can rise to 100%.

Deployment options

Install Coro Agent through one of the processes described below:

  • For single users: An administrator obtains and emails an installer link to specific users on whose device it must be installed. The user selects the link and follows the instructions to install the software on their device. This same process can be used to upgrade existing Agent versions (for version 1.5 and later).
  • For use with mass deployment tools such as GPO: An administrator downloads a copy of the Agent installer package, then deploys it to all devices using the mass deployment tool.


For details on upgrading the Agent software, see Upgrading the agent.

See the following process for details of how to obtain the Agent installer.

Downloading and installing the Agent

To download and install (or upgrade) the Coro Agent, perform the following steps:

  1. Log in to the Coro Console.
  2. Select the gear icon in the top-right corner to access the Control Panel.
  3. Select Devices > Agent Deployment.
  4. Select the ACTIONS button:

    3. Select the COPY button to copy the link to your clipboard.

    To install the agent, paste the link into a web browser and follow the instructions to install.


    Admin users can provide this link to all endpoint device users to install the agent directly. Alternatively, the same link can be used for mass deployment tools.

  • Download the installer file directly:

    1. Select Download to download the agent installation file to your local device.
    2. After the download is complete, open the installation file, and follow the instructions to install.

After the installation is complete, the Agent may download additional updates:
