« on: December 09, 2015, 11:40:38 PM »
Hello,

We are very happy to announce the  official release of our Endpoint Protection legacy products. These products include Endpoint Protection, Endpoint Protection Plus, Endpoint Protection Suite and Suite Plus.  This also includes program updates for both our Enterprise Administration Console (AEA) and Small Office Administration Console (SOA) as well as our stand alone version of Email Server Security (ESS) and File Server Security.
 
The new version includes:
  • Windows 10 compatibility
  • Win XP update issue fix
  • Behavior Shield functionality is now part of File system shield
  • Enterprise Administration database updates
  • Remote Assistance Fix
and Many other minor tweaks and fixes
 
All business products can be downloaded from our official avast web site: https://www.avast.com/download-software

The available versions are as follows :
  • AEA (ver.8.0.378)

  • Managed EP clients (Stand Alone) (ver.8.0.1606.511)
  • Email and File server security (ver. 8.0.1606.511)

*Before you can update your managed clients you MUST FIRST update the console, then once the console has been updated you can push the program update to the clients and/or deploy a new client installation for example to a Windows 10 machines.

How to Update Small Office Administration Console

1. You can update directly from the SOA console via the console Update Tab (*Please note that if you were using the Test BETA then you CAN NOT update from the console directly and must run the new installer over the beta console and then redeploy to the clients.

           OR (if you have some trouble updating this way)

2. You can update the SOA console by running the new installer found in the downloads on the avast! website.  Please be sure to choose the correct Endpoint Product + Mirror when running over your current installation.

How to Update Enterprise Administration Console (AEA)

1. You can update the EA console by going to the Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs > Choose update option and the console will update automatically.  Once the update is complete you can

*Please note that after the client has received the new program update or new installation a reboot is typically needed to complete the update.

We thank you for all of your continued support, cooperation and loyalty though this time and we continue to appreciate your feedback.

If you have any questions or issues we ask that you email us directly at absfeedback@avast.com.  If you purchased your product from a reseller we kindly ask that you first contact your reseller so they can assist you in your local language and so they can provide quick and efficient expertise.

Thank you again and Happy Holidays to you all.

Kind Regards
Che Johnson

SOA update is not working directly from console, download standalone installer and try again (please run a backup job before).

The "non-plus-ultra" in the story: the new SOA required the latest Silverlight plug-in, BUT the "Click here to download the latest version of Silverlight" link points to an older version... so everyone with the same issue go and download Silverlight plug-in from the Microsoft's Silverlight site...  ::)

BTW.. Standalone SOA installer works flawless...

Great news, we're hoping so. 

But yes for silverlight installations you can do the following for chrome.

How to Enable NPAPI plugins (Silverlight) - Windows only

1. Open Chrome and browse to chrome://flags/#enable-npapi

2. Click the Enable NPAPI setting. 

3. After that, click "Relaunch Now" at the bottom of your Chrome window. Note: Closing and reopening Chrome is not sufficient, you must click the "Relaunch Now" button.

4. Once Chrome relaunches, verify Silverlight is installed by browsing to http://www.microsoft.com/getsilverlight/Get-Started/Install/Default.aspx

5. If you see the below message, browse back out to Panopto and continue as normal

6. If you see the below message, Silverlight is not currently installed. Please click the "Click to Install" button to install Silverlight.

This should resolve your issue but if not please let me know.

@Che Johnson
Your post for Chrome will not work for *64 Chrome, as I know - all x64 browsers not work with Silverlight

But I will check now this, and say - works or no

Yes, npapi not in list, because
NPAPI support will be completely removed from Chrome. We expect this to happen before the end of 2014. – (Google Chrome team)
This means by end of this year Silverlight will stop functioning in the Chrome browser, which represents roughly a 45% audience based on June 2014 browser statistics.

Do not updating EAE.

add\remove program\AEA\Update\Check for Update -- System can not find such path


c:\install\setup_enterprise_eps.exe -> update -> next -- There was an error for changing product configuration

Fact is Silverlight will died like Flash in the near future, with all security bugs, that is the cause why Chrome, FF and all others kicked it out, and the workaround help but it not the right way for the future, Avast !

"Microsoft announced that the upcoming Edge browser, available in Windows 10, will not support Silverlight for video playback. Originally developed by Microsoft as an alternative to Adobe Flash, development around Silverlight was focused on streaming media, but became obsolete over time as support for a more universal standard in HTML5 was being developed. Microsoft actively stopped developing Silverlight in 2013 and competing browsers, like Google Chrome, are ending support for Silverlight."
