FW is installed during program update even on Free versions.

Does this mean that it is no longer installed during a program update? Or that it is now?

I suspect that it may have been installed during a program update 'if you didn't have the Firewall component installed'.
Otherwise why mention it, if you already had the Firewall component installed you would want it updated.

Also since this is the Beta channel, I would think that this is more related to the beta version/s.

First beta of 24.2 contained issue that when updating FREE version without Firewall to 24.2, component had been installed during update. This is now fixed and Firewall is no longer installed during program update to this new beta.

Thanks Karel, I updated through UI more than 24 hours ago with no issues noticed. :)
