Yes, but that is a slightly different target audience you are talking about from what my comments were made on.
That is the hassle. As I said in my first post, I know many people who have multiple computers but no network and no flash drive. Wasting an optical disk just to copy the activation file is senseless. I suppose someone thought the activation file was better than a simple code.
That target market you mention in your last post are more likely to have a single system so it is a case of visiting the link I gave to have their license resent.
Inputting the license file shouldn't be that complex as Pondus outlined and probably easier than typing in the long license number as they did in avast 4.8, whilst they could copy and paste in 4.8 that wasn't without its issues with a trailing space being copied causing a license error.
I appreciate that some people will have a problem with this, I use the free version of avast and I can't check the license file to see if the is any easier way.
Unfortunately the old style license number is history and I can't see them going back to it, as it was the number of keygens, etc. that forced this on avast and legit users are affected because of the actions of others.
