Problems with automatic update - file corrupted
« on: April 13, 2005, 08:01:21 AM »
Hello! Avast was a fine programm until yesterday: the automatic update started and after a while it said: (translated by sense from german version) problem occured: the update file was corrupted.
The definition stayed ("about dialogue") "0515-0", but when i start the update manually avast says, it is alreasy "0515-1" and nothing has to be done?! Whats the matter with this. Can anyone help?! Did it update or not?!
(The avast running on my friends PC updated correctly, but had older signature files than 0510-0 before hand).  ???

Hi, YCD!
Actually, the Avast! Update Version is 0515-1. Tried to run again? Maybe it was only a temporary failed connection with the server for exagerate traffic volume. If your problem persist, post again.

Buona giornata=guten tag ;D

Yes, i actually tried to re-run the update manually several times!
Avast always said, everything fine, already up to date with 0515-1 no need to update. But when I let avast show the definition version it says it has 0515-0 in use!!! So what definition are used by my avast?!

Strange thing... Your control of installed version is by right-click on the blueball->about Avast?

Waiting for Igor's reply, I ask:"Have you tried to open the Avast Registry Visualizer? I don't use English or Deutsch version and on my screen I see "Visualizzatore Registro di Avast!". You know how to open it?

If you see the same message (underlined in red) your version was installed successfully. But we don't find why you don't visualize the exact number... :-)

12.04.2005 17:26:19   SYSTEM   1904   An error has occured while attempting to update. Please check the logs.


Any idea?! What went wrong?
WHICH version is installed?! 1505-1 or 1505-0.
I wonder if i am protected anymore. Could the virus-db be corrupted by this problem, destroying protection?! Please help!!!

Don't worry... If a download fail, the last VPS will be there, working...
Just set the Update (Basic) > Details settings to 'Normal' (not silent) and 'Show update progress'.
If the update works, never mind, you're protected  8)

Ok, thats a relieve!  :)
But what's wrong with my avast?! I am curious if the update to the next version 1505-2 or up will function...
Since the updates are incremental...could it happen that the information of 1505-1 will be missing because avast does not "notice" the "gap" (because it states using 1505-0 but does not update to 1505-1 because it thinks, its using it already?!)...very confusing... ???

We're now using 0515-1 VPS version and not 1505-1...

Forget all the problems... Updates are incremental and intelligent.
All avast! will be at the last version. Update routines 'see' what do you have and what you 'should' have and update.
If you 'miss' an update, avast takes it and adds it to your update.
