1. Registration instructions for a single usage license


------------------------------------------------------1.1 You MUST have installed WinRAR before registering!
1.2 EASY way:
Please save the attached archive rarkey.rar to your Desktop.
Doubleclick on the icon of the archive: WinRAR registration goes
automatically, and you will see a message: Thank you for support
1.3 Drag and drop (Please use this method for WinRAR for U3 and Unplugged):

Please save the attached archive rarkey.rar to your Desktop.


Extract your key from the archive (right mouse click on the archive,
choose "Extract here")
Drag and drop your key (extracted rarreg.key file) or copy and paste
it into WinRAR folder (usually: C:\Program files\WinRAR)
If your e-mail program allows it, you may drag it to WinRAR directly
from your e-mail program.
1.4 Copy Manually:
copy rarreg.key manually into %APPDATA%\WinRAR folder
Only (Windows 98/ME/2000/XP):
Another method is to copy rarreg.key manually to the folder containing
WinRAR files. This is usually: C:\Program Files\WinRAR
You may use any of the above mentioned methods. They all result in the correct
registration of your WinRAR version. WinRAR finds rarreg.key and activates the
registration after your restart it.
To check if the registration was completed properly, open WinRAR folder
(Start-->All programs -->WinRAR). Your registration data will be displayed in
"Help" -->"About WinRAR" dialog.
2. Registration instructions for a multiple usage license
--------------------------------------------------------The registration procedure is the same as for the single user license.
See above.
You need to register your license key on as many machines as the number of
licenses that you have purchased.
For a multiple usage the license key includes the number of licenses in the
registration string. You can check this number with a text editor or after
installation in the "About WinRAR ..." dialog.
Multiple keys:
In some special cases it is possible, that you have gotten a key for every
license, so every computer gets a different key.
The first key is named rarreg.key, the second key is named rarreg.key.002
and the following key rarreg,key.003 and so on. You don't need to rename
the keys!
Please copy the key manually to %APPDATA%\WinRAR or run WinRAR and drag
and drop the key into the WinRAR window.
Only (Windows 98/ME/2000/XP):
Another method is to copy rarreg.key manually to the folder containing
WinRAR files. This is usually: C:\Program Files\WinRAR

3. Backup instructions
---------------------After registering do not forget to save a backup copy of your rarreg.key,
it may help you later in case of disk crash or other similar problems.
4. Known problems
----------------4.1 Can't copy the attached rarreg.key into WinRAR directory
problem:
When I try to open the folder it say:
Cannot import rarreg.key:
The specified file is not a registry script.
Solution:
Please don't try to open rarreg.key, use the option "save as"
from your e-mail program to copy rarreg.key into your WinRAR
directory. If your e-mail program allows it, you may drag it
to WinRAR directly from e-mail program.
4.2 WinRAR Registration doesn't work.
WinRAR doesn't accept other files or directories which are
named rarreg or rarreg.* in it's folder.
Please delete such files in your WinRAR folder
and repeat registering process.

5. Keyfile for Linux, FreeBSD and Mac OS X


-----------------------------------------To register RAR for Linux, RAR for FreeBSD or RAR for Mac OS X,
please copy the file rarreg.key to the users /home directory
(for root into /root) or to one of the following directories:
/etc, /usr/lib, /usr/local/lib, /usr/local/etc.
You may rename it to .rarreg.key or .rarregkey, if you wish,
but rarreg.key is also ok.
5.1 How to install RAR on Mac OS X
RAR for MAC OS X is a command line version.
The best way for novice users is to copy rar and the other files
of the archive into one folder of your hard disk and then use rar
from MAC OS command line environment.
Please copy the archives to extract also into this folder.
Please look for a FAQ or HOW TO for MAC OS command line environment
in the internet. Perhaps these tutorials may help you:
http://macosx.org/articles/cli_tutorial/clitutorial1.html#intro

http://homepage.mac.com/rgriff/files/TerminalBasics.pdf
The commands and switches are described in rar.txt.
Install instructions:
==========================================================
extract the archive,
copy 'rar' to '/usr/bin',
copy 'default.sfx' to '/usr/lib/' and
copy 'rarfiles.lst' to '/etc/'.
(give root:wheel ownership via 'sudo chown root:wheel ')
(and if you like to: copy documentation to
'/Library/Documentation/Commands/rar/')
There is a GUI (graphical interface) at
http://www.macstarfish.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/rarme.html
available, but we don't have tested it.

6. Registration instructions for Vista
-------------------------------------If you want to register your license key on Vista, copy the license key
into %APPDATA%\WinRAR folder instead of the WinRAR program files folder.
Or run WinRAR and drag and drop the extracted rarreg.key file into the
WinRAR window.
