Do you realise that the offline installer for Avast Free 22.11 is in fact for Avast Free 22.12.  I wasted 2 hours before realising this crass mistake when I wanted to reinstall Avast Free 22.11 because 22.12 disabled Avast Secure Browser.

They are the SAME files.   I thought that someone would have the sense to recognise the potential for confusion.

As far as I'm aware, Avast has never offered old versions of the installation.  The link for the off-line installation file will always be for the latest version.

You would need go somewhere like filehippo.com, see attached image.
Or filepuma.com

Good job I have installer for version 22.10.  In an ideal world etc. etc. etc. ...

A screwup with the release of any new software version is always possible.  Such a not unlikely eventuality should be catered by routinely providing the offline installer for the immediately previous version.  To do otherwise is irresponsible.  Is Avast worried about losing face?

Avast One appears not to have an offline installer.  This is not an encouragement to use Avast One.

Ultimately, I am to blame for my own neglect to secure a copy of the 22.11 offline installer.  I will be more careful in future.
