Software Updater Details
« on: October 18, 2022, 06:19:36 PM »
Avast Free Antivirus Version.2.9.6034

I updated to the newest version a few mins ago.

When I click the 'drop-down' arrow, the 'current' apps are displayed but it does not display their individual specs (versions).

Clicking (or right-clicking) on each of the apps has no effect.

What detail am I missing?

It appears there has been a change to the program gui.

The version numbers for each program is indeed missing.  Program has been updated.  Confirmed.

You can attach a screenshot of your program, it may be different if using Avast One, for example.

See below for attached .png file.
Windows 10 Home 64-bit 22H2 Microsoft Windows Defender - Windows 11 Home 23H2 - Windows 11 Pro 23H2 Avast Premier Security version 24.4.6112 (build 24.4.9067.762) UI version 1.0.803

Thank you for responding to my posting.

To be clear, I am using the free version of Avast Antivirus..

I figured that each 'app' would either be clickable or right-clickable 'or' have its own drop-down box to view specs.

Since an outdated app was displayed (*after the new version was installed), it did state what the new specs were. However, 'after' the update, it only showed the app.

Hi,
Attached is a screenshot of what it should look like. Is yours different?

Rz2Vast-If you are using the latest Free Version then, yes, the layout is the same.

It is odd that, although the 'Software Update' does not show app specs, the 'Update' page, that shows Virus Definition section and the Program Definition section do show version specs.
