Go Back To using Registration Codes For XP
« on: February 11, 2018, 05:24:22 AM »
Since I can't update because you don't support my version of XP to auto-update, please, go back to using codes.

I wonder to what the OP is referring?  The daily virus definitions?  Because I have the aforementioned scrap bait antique OS Windows XP SP3 Pro and I can still get the daily virus definitions.

Or might he be referring to not being able to upgrade to avast 17?  Now THAT has eluded me.  But, oh well.  avast 12 works fine for me.

I just installed the latest version of Avast! in Windows XP SP3 within VirtualBox, and updated to the latest definitions. It works fine on a clean install of Avast! Home Edition.

If you are running an older version of Avast!, you may need to uninstall it first. I was unable to upgrade directly, as it was producing false memory allocation errors in the updater. (I didn't try running the new version's installer over the old installation, as I was worried it may cause further corruption).

My best guess is something in the older versions on XP is not compatible with how the updates are given now. The latest version seems to solve this.
