Added support for fallback download server (using HTTPS) in setup in case standard servers don't work

Any chance this is related to the install problems I had with avast! (very long install times)?

What it should do and what it does are two different things that why I posted this issue:

According to your screenshot you're not on beta channel.

My error, I didn't realize this was a beta release.  :-[
Reading what's been fixed, also doesn't make me want to change back to the beta version.
Many of the old reported problems still haven't been addressed but some new ones have been introduced.
I'd like to see Avast devote some time to address all the outstanding problems before releasing new items.

Regarding Smart-Scan, same as reported in a prior beta.
-> https://forum.avast.com/index.php?msg=1429560
Add "Sensitive Data Scan" to the list, it doesn't show up either.

Test the beta version 18.1.2323:
1.Click Set-> Contract->Registration.Registration is easy.
2.Last night, reinstalled the system, installed the beta version 18.1.2323, shut down the computer 23:05.
9:00 this morning boot, in the case of no connection to the network, the software showed license invalid.This problem still exists.
Connected to the network, successful activation again, do not need to restart the computer.

Thnx for the new Beta :)

I have upgraded to Premier last week, and that is giving a lot of new to look at :)
Will post here, or on Slack, if I see things.

Greetz, Red.

9:00 this morning boot, in the case of no connection to the network, the software showed license invalid.This problem still exists.
Connected to the network, successful activation again, do not need to restart the computer.

Today is January 21, 2018 Beijing time。In the morning, when the computer is powered on, the contract is expired and needs to be restarted to display the activation. Noon shutdown, 4 pm boot and the contract expired, how hard this can not be activated.
Reinstall the computer system and install avast beta version 18.1.2323 free  again, clicking on Register Now in the contract can not be successful.
It was observed: avastui.exe networked 50 times, only four links 203.208.51.94,203.208.43.126,203.208.39.254. The rest of the connection 119.81.142.202-203.119.81.94.2-3。
By the way, I use the network is China Great Wall Broadband (Xiamen).
Do not understand why I always encountered this situation.
Authorized connection in Beijing, China is not good? Must use the outside?

Found an interesting phenomenon: first connected to the network (router power), and then power on the computer, the license will not be reported invalid.

Avast probably verifies the license when it starts. Since you aren't on-line you're getting the invalid license message.
If you start the router first and are on line when you start the system, problem solved. (Maybe Avast needs to change and not check for a valid license till it knows there's an internet access ??? )  This is just a guess on my part. :)
