Unable To Register Bitdefender Antivirus Scanner V7.6.4 For Unices


I have just installed BitDefender Antivirus Scanner v7.6.4 for Unices on Fedora 14 (GNU/Linux

Unfortunately, BitDefender will not allow me to set my new personal license key, in order to complete product registration. When I click on the button, Set new key, I am able to input the license key into the input field, but when I click on Set, the program does save the information. Thus, under Registration Information next to Key it says unknown.

Please help me register the product.

Thank you.

    Correction: I meant to say that "...when I click on Set, the program does not save the information...."
  • Well ....

    Since I've gotten no product support here, I have e-mailed my registration problem to If I can't get the product registered, and hence, usable, by Friday, then I'll have to abandon BitDefender and use Avast!, instead!

  • Hi Fender Strat,

    Sorry for the delay. Try to enter your key in the configuration file '/opt/BitDefender-scanner/etc/bdscan.conf' in the section 'Key= '. Let me know if this works.

    Thank you!

    It didn't work. When I went to edit the file, it already had a license key in it. I then replaced it, as you suggested, with the one that BitDefender e-mailed to me. However, under Registration Information, next to Key, it still says unknown. In the GUI, Scanner and Update are still grayed out. And, on the command line, I get this:

    Hello Fender Strat,

    Please apologize for delay, you have two options

    1) Allow the program stack from being executable:

    Run as root:

    chcon -t execmem_exec_t '/opt/BitDefender-scanner/bin/ultool'

    2) Disable selinux entirely or set it to permissive:

    Edit the file /etc/selinux/config and put "disabled" or "permissive" at SELINUX section

    Thank you
