Possibly a Permission Issue?
« Reply #60 on: July 17, 2016, 02:51:00 PM »
Hey guys/gals,

This seems like a permission issue but I'm not sure how to fix it. Anyway, I changed my login from my Local Admin account (which is my normal login) to the Full (Hidden) Admin account and I was able to export the settings. See below:

Using my Local Admin account:



Using the Full (hidden) Admin account:



Note: I did the initial install using my standard login account (Local Admin).

Hopefully this will help Avast understand the issue more clearly.

I really wouldn't call that fix as non of my broken computers have been fixed, its hard to say what you call that but definitely its not fixed, never was until rest of users effected can confirm their machines are rectified.

Hi all,

thanks for the patience with this annoying issue. We also managed to reproduce the issue, it got bug ID AV-10406 and the fix is already present in the last beta (12.2.2275):
https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=188942.0

I forgot to mention it in the release notes  :-\. Hope the fix works in all reported cases. If not, please let me know!
