If this has been reported or isn't supposed to work yet sorry but I find that with this beta update 2354 the Repair Tab in Settings/troubleshooting section does nothing for me (doesn't respond) , Nor does the "Back Up Settings"

Is this working for everyone, or is not supposed to yet. Thanks :)

Since this beta has now been released (with the same version number, my pet hate) is this bug still in the New program as an undocumented bug/known issue.

From my understanding, the Release version does not have the same "Setting" option/Menu so I don't think what I'm seeing is in the Release version.
I don't know for sure as I don't run the Release, only betas :)

There is no Repair in the Released version, unfortunately.

Since it has been released, Avast are hardly likely to make changes to the beta versions. 

However, as Bob said the Repair is no longer there in the UI and neither is it in the Control Panel > Add Remove Programs/Programs and Features either. 

Very disappointing as this valuable Repair option has saved many Avast users having to do a clean reinstall.

Hi David
THe 'Repair option' is in the beta UI but it's just not functional yet.
I 'originally' pointed that out because I stumbled across it and didn't realize it wasn't functional ???

I guess they resolved the fact that it wasn't functional by removing it  :(

Unlike you I have gone in the opposite direction, I no longer run the beta builds.  I got fed up of the inconsistencies, were something was functioning OK only to be screwed up in a beta release. 

Currently I'm only running the latest version on my XP Pro system (much better backup and recovery strategy in place) and not on my win10 system.  It has got to that point were I now wait to see what transpires in the forums before I manually update.  I may however have to do that before I allow the next win10 program update.

Nope, it's broken for me as well. Cheers
Thank Asyn. :)
 Wasn't sure if it was a known issue or just my systems.

With the next beta release, will it be 18.8 or is there another update for 18.7?
Thanks  :)

I would have thought for it to advance to 18.8.xxxx beta version, version 18.7.xxxx would have to be released as a regular program update.

We will certainly find out once it's released. :) (Unless Avast provides an answer. ) :)

But things are more clear now, since the Beta version 18.7.2354 has been released, there is no beta session running.  So following the usual pattern the next beta session (if one of the monthly ones) would be 18.8.xxxx. 

However, given there is going to be a fork in the road with the Vista/XP oses not being supported from November 2018, 18.x needs a polish to ensure all issues (there are a few in the forums) are resolved before pressing on with avast 19.x.
