No Internet and Manual Update
« on: May 13, 2005, 07:03:27 PM »
A friend don't have Internet connection and periodically I give him
updates of antivirus and anti-troyans. Now he use AVG, but a few days
ago I switch to Avast and is much better. I wish my friend switch too,
but he don't have Internet Connection. He can install Avast anyway?
How he made updates? With AVG, I copy 4 files from my installation and
rewrite that files in his installation. Wich files I have to copy to
manually update Avast? I know of 400.vps. There are another files?
Thanks and sorry for my english

Copy the downloaded programme file to a cd then get the manual updates from here
http://avast.com/eng/update_avast_4_vps.html copy to floppy or cd.  He will need to register to get the key to activate the free programme I'm not sure how he can go about that without an e-mail address.  Welcome to Avast :D :D

I did it for a my friend. He created (using my pc) a free mail-account on a webbased freemail provider (like msn, yahoo, tiscali...) after few minutes, I received the code and I copied it with the installer file of Avast! It's simple.
