[Resolved]Info On Free version and Key
« on: July 29, 2010, 03:53:05 AM »
once a regular 'joe'[not my real name ;)] like me has
the free exe. file and a free key code and lots of friends that
no nothing about the difference between a pc and ac/dc
can I just re-use the .exe and key code over and over
because it takes awhile to get another one e-mailed to me.

or what should I be doing to avoid all this? thanks for any and all info
Joe...LOL

With avast! 5 Free you wont get a email with license, just register though the ui.

First you don't say what version of avast you are considering doing this on, 4.8 or 5.0.

However, essentially, you can't use your key on their systems. As when you manually register in order to be able to have an email sent to you you are effectively making a declaration that you are using it for home and non-commercial use.

For avast 4.8 there is no other way but to register on-line making that declaration and getting the email and inserting the registration key. You can't make that declaration for them.

Since avast 5 allows for registration directly from the installed avastUI there is no need to register on-line and wait for the email, it is done directly. So you can use the same installation file and when installed on their system register it then and there through the avastUI.
