Hi Che,

If we install the Beta EPS now, will we be able to push out an update of the final version to all clients once it becomes available in January? Thanks.

Yes you will be able to push the update from the console to the clients...it won't be a problem.

Hello everyone,

 I am currently working at a school with no full-time tech support / network agent so I am having to install / run everything on my own. I do not have the expertise to remotely push an install across all of our new machines, so I figured it would be less insanity to manually install Avast on each computer. I did receive the education license for 100 machines though, so I believe I am good to go on that front at least.

So my 2 questions are:
1) Which file from the posted list (below) should I download and install to each computer if I am doing so manually (one computer at a time)?

2) Will my license file that was emailed to me prior to this version (the version that did not work with 8.1) work with this? Or will I have to go back and resubmit an application for a new license?

Thank you in advance to anyone who can help!

- Mr. S
