Too bad it doesn't accept my still-valid key for version 5. I thought
they allowed that?

Larry,

They had better! I just renewed for 2 years three weeks ago. LOL.

Your license is for a subscription (time period), not any particular
product. You need a KPSS license, of course, to use all of the KIS
components (KAH, KAS, etc.). Your KAV 5 license will work for KAV 6/2006.

There is one major caveat, though. If you purchased your current
KAV/KPSS license from certain third parties, that license may not be
valid for KAV 6/2006. Read the EULA. A $15 USD key purchased as part
of a Registry Cleaner package may only work for KAV 5, which, of
course, will still be supported for some time to come. I heard some
grumbling in the KL fora (forums) about this ... many threads on
upgrading KAV.

   (http://forum.kaspersky.com/index.php?showforum=4 )

BTW, before you uninstall KAV/KPSS 5, and install KAV/KIS 6/2006, make
sure that you have all of your KL keys backed up, even those that are
about to expire. When you upgrade, you want to add (not replace) the
keys. For example, a new key (purchased today, May 15, for 1 or 2
years) added to a key that is due to expire June 2, will extend the
license to June 1 (365 days, leap year), instead of May 14.

And of course, if you buy a KL license, buy it through Art's web site.

That's what I did wrong! I have KAV Personal 5.0, purchased directly
from KL, but downloaded KIS 6! I didn't see just KAV 6 but will try
again.

Cheers,
Larry

Larry,

For some time, people have been able to use KAV Personal Pro and KPSS
license keys for the technical releases of KIS 6/2006. It is now
official. The KAV 5 Personal Pro license key will work for KIS, but
_not_ a KAV 5 Personal license key. With KAV 5 Personal, you have to
upgrade or add a stand-alone KAH key in order to use KIS 6/2006.

See this KL forum thread (KAV 5 pro key):
   (http://forum.kaspersky.com/index.php?showtopic=14048 )

BTW, there is no longer a KAV Personal and KAV Personal Pro
distinction ... they both merged into one KAV 6/2006.

Hi again, Ron. I checked the download and it *was* KAV 6, not KIS 6,
but the size was wierd: 11.2MB rather than the 12.62MB mentioned on
the download page. Yet it seemed to install without complaint, other
than the key issue during the install. In any case, I re-downloaded it
and it had the same name as what I had tried earlier, but was now the
correct size, and installed and adopted the KAV 5 key without
incident. As I say, wierd!

Thanks for your helpfulness.

Larry
