Dr.Web key file. License period
I bought a boxed version of Dr.Web 7.0 (5.0, 6.0). According to your website, the latest version is 8.0. How do I update my Dr.Web to version 8.0?
Regardless of which Dr.Web distribution was in the box you purchased, you can use the latest version of the anti-virus (as soon as you register your serial number on our website and receive a license key file). The latest distribution can be downloaded from our website: http://download.drweb.com.
If you haven't installed Dr.Web yet, just launch the downloaded file. During installation, enter your license’s serial number.
If the anti-virus is already installed, but you want to upgrade to the latest version, you should run the installer of the new version. When the installer detects an outdated version, it will remove it. After a system restart, the newly installed version of Dr.Web will start automatically.
After registering my copy of the Dr.Web anti-virus on your website, I received a key file. Where should I put it?
Put the downloaded zip file in any folder other than the one in which you installed Dr.Web. Then right-click on the anti-virus icon (spider on green shield) in the system tray near the clock. Select Tools → License Manager.
Press Get new license → From file…; browse to the key's location. Click Open.
After you import the key, restart your computer.
