I am using WinXP 32 bit. As this is a 3 license version I already have installed and registered the software from the PC from where I am writing.
It's my other PC where also I want to use it, want to register the 2nd license for it but it does not have any internet connection nor i use Wi-Fi in it. I can download the updates from the Mcafee site (dat files) . but want to know how do i register my second license. Can it be done by Telephone or any other mother method?
You cannot update the home products using those DAT or SDAT files, they are only meant for the Enterprise (Corporate) products.
All home product installation must have a live internet connection to function beyond a day or so as they will them throw up errors as they will be unable to update.
I actually bought Mcafee thinking I would be able to use those DAT files to update on the Pc without the internet
Anyways, thank you so much for the info
About 3 years ago it was possible but the two products have totally diverged now.
Sorry to disappoint you.
McAfee does have a 30-days refund policy.
Thank you again
I will e-mail customer care to know if the 30 day refund policy is applicable in India or not.
I would use the Chat option as it is much quicker.
See Customer Service Chat in my signature.
As advised by you I logged on to Customer Service chat and very funnily they directed me to technical department inspite of me clearly telling my problem and how i wanted to know about the refund policy
To my utter surprise I was told that I am using a trial copy with 3 licenses.
Since when a official software purchased from a retailer become a TRIAL COPY when nothing like this is mentioned on the box. I mean its absolutely hard to believe all this
I have the chat saved if you can help me to direct it to someone who can help.
Well, where did you buy it? You should be approaching them.
