Depending on the OS you install it on (mainly XP) it requires a connection to download a UI display element not included in the off-line installation file.

Have the same issue. I want to install Avast Free Antivirus on the computer with no Internet connection. Is it possible? What is the reason of using "offline" installer if it does need Internet connection?

As Dave already mentioned, it depends on your OS...

Offline installation is officially no longer supported on Vista and XP (since V17.4) because new CEF (only one bundled in offline installer because of size) is not supported there and the online installer will download the correct CEF version.
