Avast 4.7 on Vista Home Prem x64 refuses to update
« on: June 30, 2007, 08:42:41 PM »
Hi,

I've installed Avast! version 4.7 Home Edition over Windows Vista Home Premium x64.
The current VPS File version is 000711-4
I updated my registration today too.

Auto update doesn't appear to compete.
I downloaded the vpsupd.exe file and ran as administrator after stopping all Avast services. The error message 'installer in use by another process, try later'

I would really like the auto updater to work - any ideas?

Regards

Keith N

Never mind - I got it to work. Looked like the connection settings and then a reboot.

I've tried to answer while you've posted... so...
Welcome to avast forums.

Auto update doesn't appear to compete.
Please, post the last 100-150 lines of avast log: C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\DATA\log\Setup.log

after stopping all Avast services
It's not needed to shut down the services...
