Where do I enter the license for Avira Exchange Security?

In order to install the license, please copy the HBEDV.KEY license in the main directory of Avira Exchange Security:

Avira AntiVir Exchange 9.x

  • 32-bit
    C:\Program Files\AVIRA\AntiVir Exchange\License

  • 64-bit
    C:\Program Files (x86)\AVIRA\AntiVir Exchange\License

Avira Exchange Security 2012 and above

  • 32-bit
    C:\Program Files\Avira\Avira Exchange Security\License

  • 64-bit
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Avira\Avira Exchange Security\License

Avira Exchange Security (Small Business Edition)

C:\Program Files (x86)\Avira\Exchange Security SBE\License

Microsoft Windows Server 2000/2003

C:\Program Files\Avira\AntiVir Exchange\License

Microsoft Windows Server 2008

C:\Program Files (x86)\Avira\AntiVir Exchange\License

Throughout the installation of Avira Exchange Security the file oem.li will be also installed in the "License" directory. This file has to be preserved there, because it creates the shortcut to the proper license file HBEDV.KEY. A takeover of the oem.li file from a different Exchange version is not possible.

The license should be recognized after a restart of the following services via the Windows Services:

  • AntiVir Exchange
  • AntiVir Exchange Control

To verify the takeover of the license go to the Avira Exchange Management Console → AntiVir Monitor → server → right-click on Server Name → Properties.
A new window will open and in the "General" tab under "License Information" should be displayed following entry:

Mode: FULL
State: VALID
