Got UI crash when tried to initiate remote connection (remote PC is using beta2).

It is reproducable. Also there seems to be issue with showing PC status. First it is "offline", but after selecting (click on PC) it and going back, it shows it's ready to initiate remote connection.

I've sent support package (with new tool). 20150220_1526_9G130_3247316768

Thanks for you feedback, I'm investigating the issue about remote connection. Just a comment about "offline" status. It takes some time to recognize that remote PC is online (and remote connection is allowed). So, probably avast recognized it when you was on second page a if you returned back avast knew this information and thus showed that remote connection is allowed.

Thanks,
David

I've created new thread too, so check it out :) Issue is caused by Remote control, which is not installed on host PC :)

You are definitely right. It will be fixed in next release. Thanks a lot for your help.

Hi Avast! Are the settings that is related to VPS update notification via the Avast GUI removed in this version? Refer to this https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=159528.165 reply number 172 and 174. I don't use beta programs. Many thanks.

Installed...so far no problems.

NG entries in the System 32 folder...is still resolved?

TerraX

Problem is resolved, but you can experience last new log items during update (generated by old vbox). After update restart, it should never happen again.

Well NG will be moved away from the system restore points hopefully in R3 in a few months.

Then this will get much better and faster hopefully.

Yes, this will be part of R3 in June/July

I have manually deleted the old text documents...everything is fine. :)

When it is ready it will be released. You will be looking at another Release Candidate 2 and Release Candidate 3. Usually after RC3, the final version gets released.

There seems to be confusion about one thing so I would like to verify it:

Is NG (or whatever it's called nowadays) already working without system protection/restore, and if not, when it is estimated to arrive in any public release? Thank you.

I noticed on RC1 an additional AvastUI process, that used -gpu-process command-line argument.

Guess it is related to Chrome/Blink, but it even appears if unchecking use Chrome webview.
