The new version is OK.
I have installed offline now.
No.
The offline installer is the exact same as before.
If it works for you now, then the installer must have been granted internet access during the setup procedure, and/or the fixes have been applied through the Emergency Updater.
Many of us run avast! under a much more controlled environment, so we need updated offline installers!

The problem was not in the installer, but in one emergency update which is also being downloaded during the installation. And that is fixed now.

The Emergency Updater does NOT have internet access on my system, and I've encoutered the same problem as other users, where the main GUI will pop up on the screen all by itself!
Please update the offline installers.

Hello,

please be informed that I had very big issue with this update: Avast could not run in background. In other words it did not work at all. I tried to unistall/reinstall, along with all the options present in Control Panel without success.

Eventually I solved the issue by: uninstalling the program and creating a Restore Point in Windows to a previous date. Now I have a program not updated but perfectly working.
@administrators: please solve this serious issue with v 12.2.2276; this is the first time I have had problems with Avast.
 
I hope my advice is useful to oher users   :)

Tomaso,
even if a new(er) file has the same size as the old one, it doesn't mean things haven't changed.
hello and apple are both words, they have both 5 letters but they definitely are not the same ;)

Are you kidding?
What are the odds them being the exact same size, right down to the last byte?
Besides, it's got the same creation date (‎28 ‎July ‎2016, ‏‎10:54:32), and the same checksums:

I can confirm positively that the offline installer--even though the same version as when the problem started--works now.  During installation, it will need internet access for the Emergency Updates to take place.  Once complete, all is well again--as it should be.

That defeats the whole purpose of an OFFLINE installer!

If no internet access, then the PC is rebooted after install, and first time goes online, Emergency Updates will occur since the Definition needs updating too eventually...

Like I've pointed out before, some of us run avast! in a much more controlled environment then others..
The Emergency Updater does NOT have internet access on our systems!

Sorry, all I can tell you is what works for me and my systems... Maybe someone from the official Avast Team could help with your situation.

Tomaso,

it is you own choice to use a "more controlled environment".
Sure it can have benefits, but it also will have downsides.
Learn to live with them.

If the emupdate does not have internet access, it means the systems are not as good protected as they could be.
