(Question) Will ESET Smart Security 2014 CD version work on Windows 10?

Recommended Posts

Hi! A few months ago I bought the ESET Smart Security (2014 version and on a CD in a box, polish language) for my current PC (Windows 8.1).

But later I decided to buy a new laptop with Windows 10 somewhere in January / February 2020, so I haven't installed this antivirus on my current PC because I prefer to keep it for a new laptop.

The problem is: I'm worried that since this is a box from 2014 and it is written on it, that it is compatible with Windows 8.x and not 10, because it did not exist then, so I'm not sure if once I install it on a new laptop will it update to the latest version and will it just be compatible with Windows 10? Will license work etc?

The good thing with eset is that licenses work for all versions e.g. if you buy the latest version and a new version comes out you can upgrade as the license is for the product not the version.

Just follow what Marco's said above and you should be good to go

The Polish distributor should have a form for activating retail boxed versions. If the number on the box doesn't work in the activation form, please contact the Polish customer care, e.g. via https://www.eset.com/pl/support/contact-support/.
