Key file is a special file stored on the local computer. It corresponds to the purchased license or activated demo period for Dr.Web for Linux. The file contains information on the provided license or demo period and regulates usage rights in accordance with it.
The key file has .key extension and is valid if satisfies the following criteria:
•License or demo period is not expired
•Demo period or license applies to all anti-virus components required by the product
•Integrity of the key file is not violated
If any of the conditions are violated, the license key file becomes invalid.
It is recommended to keep the license key file until it expires, and use it to reinstall Dr.Web for Linux or install it on a different computer. In this case, you must use the same product serial number and customer data that you provided during the registration.
If you have a key file corresponding to the valid license for the product (for example, if you obtained the key file by email or if you want to use Dr.Web for Linux on another computer), you can activate Dr.Web for Linux by specifying the path to the key file.

In this case, the key file will not be copied to the /etc/opt/drweb.com directory and will remain in its original location. If so, the user becomes responsible for ensuring that the file is protected from corruption or deletion. This installation method is not recommended as the key file can be accidentally deleted from the system (for example, if the directory, where the key file resides, is periodically cleaned up).
