    Hi, i have posted something rather similar in the other AV forum but its more of a computer problem i have and i wasnt sure if the software experts frequently went into the AV section.

    But i have downloaded and installed kaspersky pro and i have the trial key file which i downloaded from the kaspersky site (its a registry file) i click on it and it says do you wish to install, i click yes and an error message occurs.

    I have tried 6 different key files and all the same message. Please can you fix this.

    I believe the AV setup, or even after install, you have to use KAV to import it... :doubt:

    Also....in order to import a file into the registry....the file extension has to be .reg....which is the reason for the Registry Editor error message.

    It doesn’t have to be .reg file, only by Windows standards.
    You can Install a program or make manual registry manipulations so that you can import registry files (registry format) ending with filetype .ass for instance :D

    Sure....there are numerous programs that can add entries to the registry but in this case....I'm assuming Anthony is attempting to import a file with a .key extension that may not be a registry script....which want work I don't think....similar to your .ass example you are showing.

    Oh wait....I forget the :)

    I mean, you can make additional extensions support like .ass for instance, be treated like the actual window standard .reg file, have it import like .reg file upon double-click for instance (or single click depending on the users windows setup) as long as it is in reg format. :D

    One could easily have an executable file with different extension like .ass for instance be treated like an executable file with extension .exe :D

    Anthony....since you started a duplicate type thread earlier this AM in the other anti-virus software Forum concerning this same matter....I'll be closing this one shortly and continue this duplicate discussion in the below thread.

    It also appears in that other thread that you have this issue resolved ?
