How can we upgrade? Even after manual upgrade I still see 18.5.2535.

Upgrade will be available later. We are doing slow roll-out. In case you strive the new AV 18.6, uninstall the previous version and install the new one is the only option for now.

We updated the AV client to new one, but its showing that previous version is a newer version. N.B this is the onsite master agent.

Hi all,

I've talked with support, and was given the same instructions with going through the hassle of uninstalling, then downloading from the Console. It ends up on the same version, 18.5.

I fail to find something about how to enter licenses in the unmanaged Business version.
As far as I can tell, upon first installation at the end a popup form asks for the license and it then gets activated.

Where can I change the license used when this is not the case?

*Update 17.09.2018* I got the information that there should be an entry "Subscription" in the settings of the app. It is possible to download the wrong installer on the Avast website which doesn't show this pop-up form during installation. One has to make sure that the proper installation file is chosen (Managed/Unmanaged, ...)
