The license key file becomes invalid after editing. Do not save changes after opening the file in text editors to prevent the license from compromise.

Using a license key file

You can use the license key file only with an application installed from the Doctor Web website.

To use a license key file

You can either copy the entire ZIP archive, or you can unpack the archive and copy only the .key file to your device.

2.On the License screen, tap I already have a license.

3.Select Use a key file (see Figure 4).

4.Open the folder where you have copied the key file or the entire ZIP archive to, and tap it.

A key file for Dr.Web Security Space or Dr.Web Anti-virus applications can be used with Dr.Web only if it supports DrWebGUI and Update components.

To check whether such a key file can be used:

1.Open the key file in a text editor (e.g., Notepad).

2.Check the list of values of the Applications parameter in the [Key] group: if DrWebGUI and Update components are on the list, you can use the key file for operation of Dr.Web.

The key file editing makes it invalid. To prevent the license from compromise, do not save the file when you close the text editor.
