« on: November 27, 2018, 06:43:29 PM »
Hi,

Avast Business Antivirus version 18.8 has just been released today (27th November 2018). This new Antivirus version will be available for client devices connected to our Avast Business Cloud/On-Premise consoles and un-managed version.

This release focuses on a small configuration change to support Windows XP and Windows Vista on Avast Business Antivirus version 18.8.

Additional Information

Avast Business Antivirus client 18.8 will be the last version to support Windows XP and Windows Vista. We will continue to support these operating systems going forward and client version 18.8 will be installed.

When Avast Business Antivirus client version 19.x is released in the new year, this version will be available for installation on Windows 7 and higher operating systems, 18.8 will be available for installation to Windows Vista and Windows XP operating systems. Both 19.x and 18.8 versions will be supported via our Management Consoles (cloud and on-premise).

Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit and higher operating systems will continue to be supported on client version 18.8 and 19.x.

Client Updates

Devices on Avast Business Antivirus 18.7 or lower will upgrade to 18.8 version over the coming weeks.
A restart prompt will appear for users, but can be postponed (depends on device settings you have set in the console), there will be no automatic restarts.
