Update Fails Since 05 JUL 2006
« on: July 06, 2006, 11:49:55 PM »
I cannot update manually or automatically with Avast Home Edition.  Here is the error message that is repeated in the Event Viewer:

05JUL2006 07:31 AM - Function setifaceUpdatePackages() has failed. Return code is 0x2000000C, dwRes is 2000000C.

Here is the error message displayed on the screen:

Information about current update:
Last encountered error: Can't select any server for downloading (from 0).

Total time: 0 s

Everything was working normally up to that point.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

The servers.def file would appear to be corrupt or 0KB, C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\Setup\servers.def You can try and download the servers.def file, http://files.avast.com/iavs4x/servers.def and replace the original.

That was exactly the problem.  My 9 KB servers.def was completely blank.  Downloading the new file got it working like new.

Thanks.

I'm unsure what your asking, but if it is about the frequency of VPS signature updates ?
There is no set number per week, they are released as required, it averages out around 3-4 per week and often more. I have seen as many as 4 in a day, each time you connect to the internet avast will check to see if any VPS updates are available and every 4 hours if you remain connected.

If it is about program updates, that is different, once a program update is released it will be available and everyone should get it within 7 days as the load is spread so as not to overload the servers.
