    Default Can 3-user license key be used to renew 1-user ZAISS subscription?

    My subscription will be expiring very soon.
    I'm currently using the 1-user version of ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite 6.5.
    I want to
    purchase the 3-user version, as I've recently acquired an additional computer that I want to protect.
    I'll probably purchase the 3-user version at a local store (hopefully, on sale).
    Can I purchase the 3-user version of ZAISS and use that license key to renew the subscription for the 1-user version currently installed on my computer?
    If so, is it as easy as just entering the new license key on the Overview/Product Info page and clicking on "Change Lic."?
    Can I then download and install the trial version of ZAISS 7.0 onto the new Vista computer and use the retail-purchased 3-user license key to extend that subscription?
    (I would just install the out-of-the-box 3-user version onto the Vista computer, but it's my understanding that the packaged version doesn't work with Vista.)
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Software Version:6.5
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    I am unsure if this can be done. But ask Customer Support here and see what they have to say.

    Sure the 3pc license key can be used to renew - basically when you buy the 3pc key you will start a whole new subscription, which will incidently renew/extend your current 6.5 version- but...you must un-install as Guru Oldsod has descibed.
    Once you enter the key, the countdown/ expiration date starts for the key - whether you use the second license on a new Vista now or later. Oh, no need to use the CD-Rom from the retail box, the license key is the critical item;
    uninstall 6.5, download 7.0462 and enter the key. A 3 pc key is good for any mix of XP or Vista pc/laptops.<hr>For the new Vista - it would be best to download the Vista version - either a final release 7.1.078 or { you can use the beta 7.1.247 now without using the license key - betas are free to use without a key- but once another Vista
    final release is published - you will have to use the key - your choice} see/click here &gt; http://forums.zonelabs.org/zonelabs/...ssage.id=73617<hr>See/ click here for more tips &gt; http://forums.zonelabs.org/zonelabs/...ssage.id=73645

    Default NaiveMelody - A followup question re: 3-user license key and downloads

    Thanks to you both for your very prompt replies.
    NaiveMelody, I would purchase
    the 3-user retail boxed version of ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite.
    I wouldn't
    use the enclosed CD, but would instead download 7.0.462.000 for the XP machine as you suggested.
    Am I looking for
    the trial version online, then entering the 3-user
    license key when the trial is about to expire?
    If so, is this where I would get the 7.0.462.000 trial
    download: http://download.zonealarm.com/bin/fr...ml#7.0.462.000?
    And does the trial version have all the features of the retail version?
    I assume that I could also use the 3-user key to renew my soon-to-expire ZAISS 6.5 license if I decided against upgrading to 7.0 at this point.
    Is that correct?
    I am a bit reluctant to upgrade because everything's working well, but I realize that there are improvements to the anti-virus in the newer version, so I'll probably upgrade.
    Since I paid for the 3-user retail boxed version, would I also be downloading a trial version of the final release 7.1.078 for the Vista machine,
    entering the 3-user license key when the trial is about to expire?
    If so, where can I find the Vista trial version 7.1.078?
    I don't see it listed on the page linked above.
    Thanks for your patience with me.
    I know I have a lot of questions.
    I really appreciate your help!!!

    The retail boxed versions and the ZA store versions are equal in all respects. Yes, that is the correct link for the ZAISS XP releases or here.

    The Vista ZAISS installer can be found here.

    Yes the key should work ok for the older version. If not, then contact ZA's Customer Support and they will convert the key to make it workable.

    Please ask questions. It is the main reason we show up to help ZA other users on this forum. All questions are honored.

    Thank you SO much, Oldsod!

    You and the others
    on this forum are very helpful, and I appreciate all
    the time you devote to assisting everyone.
    The two links you provided (one for XP releases and the other for Vista releases) are for trial versions, correct?
    Would I
    install the trial versions (which I believe are good for 15 days) and then
    enter the 3-user license key before the trial ends to extend the subscription for a year?
    Best wishes.
