The Spybot license is an executable file (.exe) which is sent to customers who have purchased Spybot.
When this file is run, it will check to see if a version of Spybot is installed. If a version is installed, the license will be applied to this version of Spybot, upgrading it from the Free Edition to the paid edition that was purchased. If a version is not installed, it will install the latest version of Spybot and apply the license to this.
If a customer loses their license, they can have it resent to them by filling out the Resend License Form.
