Applies to Kaspersky Anti-Virus 8.0 for Linux File Servers

Yes, you can install new versions of the product you have purchased anytime while your license is valid.

By purchasing a Kaspersky Lab product you purchase the right to use it until the license expiry date (for 1 year usually). The license expiry date is specified in the key file or activation code provided with the program. 

A key file is a file with the extension .key (XXXXXXXX.key). It can be used either during installation or with an already installed product. Kaspersky Lab software does not function without a key file.

While your license is valid, you can upgrade a purchased application to a new version (as new versions become available). New versions feature additional functions and have errors fixed.

For example, you have purchased Kaspersky Anti-Virus 8.0 for Linux File Servers with a license for 1 year. The CD you have purchased contains version, which you have already installed. Some time later Kaspersky Lab releases a new version of the same product –

Given that your license is still valid by the moment the new version is released, you can download it, install on your PC, and activate using your existing key file.
