avast! Free V7.0.1447 - Windows 2000
« on: June 28, 2012, 03:42:56 PM »
Hello!

I had Beta V7.0.1443 (Free) on one of my Windows 2000-PC's.

Scenario A:
I tried to update via "Maintenance -> Update -> Update Program" to V7.0.1447. This worked so far without problems, all 3 steps were OK. At the re-start to I was requested, came an "Application Popup" (see attachment) once. After clicking "OK" the installation was completed successfully. The Popup appeared never again, neither after re-starts. V7.0.1447 is running without problems, Stream-Updates are working too. For testing I de-installed V7.0.1447 via "Control Panel -> Software". At the question "Do you want to restart now?", I choose "no". After that, I couldn't close the program "mshta.exe" in a normal way to make a re-start by myself (see screenshot).
My questions to Scenario A:
Is there a special relevance of the Application popup?
Is it normal that the "Control Panel -> Software" cannot be closed normally after de-installing V7.0.1447?

Scenario B:
After "Scenario A" I ran the uninstall utility in safe mode and installed V7.0.1447 (Free) from scratch. At the bottom of the welcome screen, you can choose to install "Google Chrome" (see screenshot). But Chrome was never released for W2K (and as far I can remember, as I installed V7.0.1426, the bottom was not shown). I unticked the first option and installed V7.0.1447 without Chrome. The complete installation was performed without problems. Stream-Updates are working too, the system is fine and stable.
My question to Scenario B:
Will you remove the bottom (again) in the final (official) version for installations on Windows 2000?
So the (few) users of W2K will be prevented to run into problems if they try to install Chrome.

Just for information: both Scenarios happened at updating from 7.0.1442 to 7.0.1443 in the same way.
Please answer my questions.

Thank you in advance!

Hello SafeSurf!

You marked my problem as [RESOLVED], but this is only a partial truth. Because "Scenario B" is still an open issue, see at:
http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=100788.msg805785#msg805785

There is no reply at the moment, but I hope that the development team has an eye on it.

It is not resolved until you (the original poster) actually marks it as such...I was just showing you how to do it.
