iObit has released a new version of one of the most popular driver updates software. On this tutorial I pretend to show how to activate Driver Booster 3 Pro version.
At this moment, there are now licence keys working properly, however I will present two alternatives to get the Pro version while there are no giveaway licence keys.
Read carefully all the steps.
1- Disconnect from Internet
2- Enter this licence key: 0187E-B9764-4D9FA-211B3. As the program can’t connect to server, activation will fail, but you will now have Pro version (until you connect to the internet, something you can only do after all.)
3- On the system tray, right-click on Driver Booster icon. A context-menu will open, then click Exit
Now we will start the difficult part for some users. We will change the read attributes of DB files (along this post, I will use DB to mention Driver Booster).
How to open folders locations?
This is just a quick trick. If you press Windows key + R, you will see Run dialog. If you type a folder location and click Ok, Windows explorer will show up. This explanation is required along this tutorial.
If you are running a 64-bits based OS, browse to: C:\Program Files (x86)\IObit\Driver Booster
Else, if running a 32-bits Windows OS, browse to: C:\Program Files\IObit\Driver Booster
Or, to make it easier, if you have a DB shortcut on Desktop, right-click hover it and then Open File Location
On this folder, look for the file Register.dll, right-click hover it, go to Properties and tick the Read-only box. Then click Apply and OK.
Ok, after that, open C:\ProgramData\IObit\Driver Booster\License
Set the files License.dat and Register to read only, by repeating the process above.
After this, you now are able to re-connect to the internet. Run DB, and you stay with Pro version. Please, leave your feedback. This is an experimental process, so I would appreciate to know if it really works 🙂
If the above method fails, you can also try this.
After you installed Driver Booster, you must add the following “code” to the hosts file.
To do this, I will present two options.
1- Browse to the folder C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc
Right-click hover hosts file, Open, select Notepad and OK
2- As an alternative, and maybe quicker, press Windows and R keys simultaneously to open Run dialog, paste the command notepad.exe /A C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts and the Notepad will open the hosts file.
Ok, now paste the above “code” line. At the end, it should look like this:
Save the changes.
Note: If you try to Save, probably you will get a error because you are trying to save a file in a protected directory, and Notepad has no UAC permissions. To workaround this, Save as… and save the file without extension on the Desktop e.g. Then, move that file to the //etc folder and replace files.
Go to Driver Booster and enter one of the following licences.
