Also, if you look at the
help file in the program under "Subscriptions" there are more instructions, not about transferring but I would think if you forwarded the original subscription e-mail to the new computer and double click on the license file, I think it will probably install. I use the free version myself which doesn't need a key so my program is not exactly the same as yours.
Security program from old to new computer
I'll have time to work on this tomorrow. I already looked
around under Subscriptions. Once when I bought security
from another vendor, it said something about 3 downloads
allowed for a year, (for situations where a computer or
hard drive is replaced?). Maybe in my papers is a page
with my file key from Avast!
Check your old e-mails and see
if the key is in there, That is how they send them. You double click on the file and it installs the key in the program. If you can't find it, I would suggest you post in the avast forum on the link I gave you above but start a new thread there. One of the avast people should be able to help you.
Security Program from old computer to new
Thanks roddy32 for your help. I did glance at
the Avast! thread before going out for holiday
dinner. I realized that most companies as big
as Avast! must have forums that help users
of their products, and that people who are
a little more tech savvy would know that as a fact.
I didn't find help at the Avast! interface, didn't
think of looking at their website, and didn't think
of a "Newbie Forum" as possibly best for my question.
They have different sections in that forum,
just pick the one that best suits your question. I spent some time in the
help section of the program also and did not find an answer.
