Me too!
When I tried to install my ASUS P565 (Marvell TravorP CPU, windows mobile 6.1 Traditional Chinese Edition), I got error message saying "avast4ppc_arm_setup is not a valid Pocket PC application".
I have tried the other 2 installation programs "avast4ppc_wm6_setup.exe" and "avast4sphone6_setup.exe" all not working, why is that? ???
Could anyone help me please? Thanks!

Hello,
ppc- versions are not intended for your device, you can use only sphone- versions.

Do you say, that http://files.avast.com/files/pda/sphone_wm6/avast4sphonewm6_setup.exe shows the same error messages? Could you please try Sphone 2002/2003/2005 versions from our web? http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-pda.html

Thanks.

Hi there!

I have the HTC Touch Cruise 2009 and I tryed to install the 'avast4sphonewm6_setup.exe' version on it. The message I receive says "'avast4sphonewm6_setup is not a valid Pocket PC application", same like the other guys upper.

Which is the right version for my phone? Thanks for your time!

Avast RULES, keep the same direction!

There currently is no Avast version for a smartphone, however there is a thread of security news and updates on this forum in the General Topics section for all OS's.  There was discussion of Avast perhaps having a smartphone version in the Smartphone thread a while ago, but we have no further news of this.  It is much needed, and with so many people using smartphones these days, it could benefit many people.

When it is released, you will see news about it here.  Usually releases are for the full product, and usually free.  I have no further information at this time.  We'll have to stay tuned for more information.  :)

@ seemasaiyom,

Who are you directing your post or comment to?  If it is to clb137, that post was from 2/14/09 (> 1 year old) and no further follow up so must be resolved by now.  The technology has most likely changed and Avast will be coming out with a Mobile AV in the near future.  But thank you for your comments and suggestions.  :)

It's not there yet.  You will most likely hear about it here first.
