Hi, I'm writing a cyber tool and would like to be notified on any Avast alert.
Is there an API/SDK for such an integration ?
Thanks
Avi

Hi David, the main problem with Export/Import should be solved in this version. However, during verification of the fixed problem we found out some more issues that are connected to specific configuration not being exported/imported properly so agreed to give it more time in December/January to make it better. Have a nice day. Petr

Awesome news!

What I can add, as an example, in version 21.8 Export/Import of settings into/from a file kinda worked,
but some settings didn't restore at all to the ones that were set during exporting into a file.

That was easy to miss, until I tried changing every single setting (and removing global exceptions) after the Export and then trying to restore them.

When you will be finishing the fixing of the Export/Import system, and will be checking that everything works,
especially keep attention to those problematic settings:

The Shield's own settings (I only had Web and File Shields installed, so it could be either a problem with them, or with ALL the Shields),

"Malware / Potentially unwanted programs" Sections of settings.

Global exceptions, (directory paths added manually).

This version seem to have solved most of the Restore problems including Firewall Application Rules. But it still can't restore Ransomware Shield settings i.e. Protected Folders and list of approved apps.

Thanks for the prompt response and the new of further time being spent on it as I feel it is a very useful/crucial backup tool.

Hi,
I don't know if it's part of the bugs treated with this version but:
1-the special characters are displayed correctly in the new release notes
2-"Avast antivirus" does not appear twice in application notification.
as it was the case when I upgraded to 21.10

edit:
however I spotted a French translation issue.

I noticed that the new version of Avast Free with the firewall active was randomly slowing down my internet connection and not opening web pages.
I uninstalled Avast Free and everything is working fine again.

I updated to the new version through Avast, selected the restart now option and let it do its thing. Now my display drivers don't work properly. I can't adjust the brightness on my laptop monitor, and my second monitor plugged through HDMI can't be detected. I had the same problem a few months ago when I had to uninstall and reinstall Avast, and it messed it up on the uninstall portion. I was able to fix that though through an optional HP (the brand of my laptop) driver update through Windows update that found and fixed the problem on a restart. I don't have the ability to do that since there are no HP updates through Windows update to install right now, and the Device detector from the HP website isn't helping me out.

Has anyone had a similar problem after an Avast update, or ever?

Afaik, no. If you want to dig deeper, start a new thread and provide details.

Hi,

Like the previous version after the install with full installer, the first start doesn't work.

I mean there's normally a screen saying to start first scan and many things after...

But nothing, it have a warning message, it doesn't load, try to load, or repair installation....

After a simple reboot it's ok to go inside the avast main page, but is my pc fully protected :o :o :o
