AIS Question
« on: January 07, 2011, 07:46:08 PM »
I want to try out the AIS version of Avast. Will I have to uninstall the Free Version or will that install over the top of it? Just wondering.

Thank you and I was curious about that. Does it pop up a box about how many more days there is in your trial? I'm not familiar with that version.

if you have license then just enter *.license file and click OK. Then it willl automatically upgrade to AIS.

Since 'Prince Winter Flurry' is going to use the trial version, there is no license to enter.

Before a trial version can be run as far as I'm aware you will have to uninstall the free version (as that is the registered version), reboot and install the AIS Trial.

@ 'Prince Winter Flurry'
The trial period is 30 days, I would imaging that you would get a notification near to the time. At that point you would have to either purchase a license to enter, or enter free registration key (you would need that see ~~~ below), or do a clean reinstall of avast free.

~~~
Web site (Off-line) Registration rather than using UI Registration (which wouldn't be available in the AIS UI) see support.avast knowledgebase article 459 - http://www.avast.com/registration-free-antivirus.php.

It will tell you how many days you have left in the Summary page. There is also some sort of "countdown" bar that will deplete over time.
