Opening AVASTLIC files

Did your computer fail to open an AVASTLIC file? We explain what AVASTLIC files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your AVASTLIC files.

What is an AVASTLIC file?

Files that contain the .avastlic file extension are license files that have been created for commercial versions of the Avast! anti-virus software. Avast! offers comprehensive protection from viruses, spyware and other malware dangers.

The AVASTLIC files that the software uses contain information about a user's subscription and authorization information from Avast including the user's user name, the product details and and the date that the user's license will expire.

The AVASTLIC file is usually sent to the user via email. Once the user has received the email containing the license, the attachment can be used to install the license on the user's hard drive.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
