Ok, how? Just wait another 30 days and see what happens? Autoregister sounds like an internet connection is required...

Just wait. It will auto register offline.

I've got an update on this:

There is no need to register the free version via key anymore.

The offline will auto register automatically.

Well that is good news, the only problem being is they don't appear to have implemented this in the avast free UI.

Or why tell the user that he has 30 days to register (as in the image Reply #7) at all if there is no requirement.

yes we will still need to do some changes in the UI but don't worry about the registration. the registration doesn't influence anything

Thank you, hopefully this user confusion can be cleared up soon.

Ok, to to get rid of this counter I wanted to install the most current version. As the installation failed I uninstalled the old version using the deinstaller from windows and the Avast cleaner tool. Unfortunately the installation of the current version failed again. Re-installation of the old version (17.3.2291, build 17.3.3443.0) worked, but with the registration countdown. I tried again to update to the new, current version, which failed again.
I attached the installation log file. Maybe it helps...
It seems to fail at sending anything to the internet... obviously, as it hasn't an internet connection. This shouldn't be a problem for an offline installation...

Use the off-line installer or change your DNS to the one(s) from Google and try again.

I used the offline installer (at least some installer with 285MB, downloaded as offline installer). DNS shouldn't matter, as my machine won't get an internet connection under Win XP (already mentioned several times).

There has been something mentioned by one of the avast team about installing avast on XP it does need to have an internet connection, even if you are using the off-line installation setup file.

I can't recall exactly where this was mentioned, I have spent some time browsing the avast beta sub-forum (as that is I believe it was), but I have been unable to find it.

Can anyone remember this as I didn't save the topic URL.

I only found it because an other helper gave a vague answer and I started to look for the solution. :)
I hate it when incomplete help is offered. To me it's worse than no help but in this case it found the answer you needed. :)

So this means that there is no true offline installation anymore. Hmmm, too bad, what a pity.
A promising software broken down for... nothing?
Then I'll have to find another anti-virus solution for my XP-PC. No new user, as I'll stay with Avira for the other PCs.
