info

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 is secured with digital signature. Do not edit or otherwise modify the file to prevent the license from compromise.
