What license key, the one for avast 4.8 won't work on avast 5 ?

- avast! 5 Pro license convert from 4.8 Pro license. Try http://www.avast.com/resend-license.php now, fill in the form giving your email and 4.8 Pro License key and they will send the new license file to you (presumably it will check you have a legit 4.8 Pro license first).

I did this but it just sent me the text of the license file rather than an attachment (might have something to do with yahoo mail).  So I copied the text and made it into a .avastlic file but it says ....is not a valid Avast! license file - help?

You could try a different email address (non yahoo), what you have effectively bumped into I would guess is the anti-piracy and integrity check on the license file.

I don't know for certain as I'm not using the Pro version, but I can't see how they could retain any sort of integrity check/anti-piracy function without the complete file being attached to the email without being edited, etc.

By 'Getting rid of.... etc.' I meant the stupid windows option to hide certain files and folders (which you did) not the files and folders themselves. What I'm finding is that after VPS updates the old VPS Folders weren't pruned (XP location, C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast5\defs), which is effectively a duplication at over 50MB a day. Now it seems that they are being cleared out but now it appears to be working, with the current VPS and the last VPS.

In Vista these "def" files seem to be located C:\ProgramData\Alwil Software\Avast5\defs\10012700 - I would be interested to know which ones in 10012700 are the update files you refer to?

The folder name matches the VPS version number, year, month,day,versions issued, etc. so that folder would be 100127-0 VPS version number, so that is the current one and you may have the previous one also folder 1001261 or = 100126-1 VPS version number.

The Update relates to you receiving a VPS update and a new folder will be created to contain all that information (much of it duplicated from the previous current folder).

That is interesting info David, thanks.  - I see what you mean about duplicating: logging on this morning I note that that the folder size in Programs has increased from 110 MB to 111 MB with VPS 100127-1. An increase equivalent to that which you mentioned in your earlier post re VPS sizes. No prob.

I am grateful to you because I probably (possibly) could have answered my question using the Help, which I must admit not having looked at for Avast5. I automatically went to the WEBforum as it is lively - which means there are obviously many others who are equally impressed by Avast (I don't recall anything like this with AVG or Avira!)

Your welcome, something often forgotten when choosing an AV is support when things happen and I haven't come across many forums with the speed of response of this forum.

unfortunately it seems you have to request it with the same email you registered with.

exactly what I thought, especially if they don't attach it as a .avastlic file which it has to be in order to insert it...

Have you tried contacting sales (at) avast (dot) com and seek advice on how to get round the problem.

Are you using the 4.8 pro version ?
If so then you can do as suggested back on page 1 of this topic.
