gee, how stupid could i be??   ???

i did not install the other languages! i just tried to do it again, and then i saw that by default the other languages are marked with XXX meaning DONT install.

i did it all so quickly the first time that i thought that all languages were selected by default  :D i expected to see either *empty* boxes or *ticked* boxes, but not crossed X boxes LOL

okay, sorry for that. i'll post again how it all works though (downloading at the moment).

cheers!  ALEX

Well, you are "right" in fact - the chekboxes are confusing.
Vlk suggested today that thay should be of different color at least (crosses red, checkmarks green, or something like that). Hopefully it would make the things clear.

Re:Yet another beta update (4.1.315)

There is yet another beta update now available on our servers.
This one adds the following fixes and improvements:
- technical's problem with the NAV warning

Happy to be a usefull beta-tester... Next boot, let's see 4.1.315!  ;D
Btw, I tested twice and the Norton SpeedDisk problem related before - and now corrected, as I hope - remains in the older version... Let's see in the new one. I'll post.

Sorry, Vlk, I do not have any 'new' packed files to test... pk and Igor solved all my troubles with packed files in the past 8)

I'll have to plead guilty to not trying the beta, mainly 'cause I'm a cautious old-timer and try not to mess with upgrades till they're past the beta stage.

Something I might have missed in this topic, but didn't see mentioned -- are you holding off on database updates for the "regular" 4.1 home until you're happy with the new beta?  Seems like an unusually long while since the last update -- less than a week, admittedly, but even that long is unusual for you guys.

Best,
Mike

Well, yeah, this is because the last update was released on Thursday because of Friday as it contained the Scold virus that seemed to do pretty well...

Next update wil be just today, as usual for Tuesday...

What a big update for the VPS: 145 kb... Is that correct? or there was any other update included... Anyway, the iAVS push update worked fine for me...  8)

Yes, it is correct - it is of this size for two week now already - it is incremental comparing to 0311-0 and the "change" still contains the two weeks ago changes: the huge bunch of trojans, new macro viruses and modified cleaner. We believe the 0312-0 will be released soon - so after this it will come back to "standard" sizes :)

OK, the official update is just being sent to our download servers.

Just invoke program update, that's all you need to do (you don't even have to restore the original servers.def).

The release number is 4.1.319.
Web servers will be updated tomorrow...

Thanks again,
Vlk
