Hallo,

-I didn't uninstall the older version avast before updating it to the new version. Is it OK?

Place your mouse pointer over the VPS in the left upper corner of the main gui window. if it's smething like 0.0.90-whatever,
and if your updates work (use menubar, show update details), and about window shows 3.03, it's OK.

- 'm using Thunderbird(3.0.1) as a mailer. Having sent the eicar testfile to myself,
there's at the moment no support for thunderbird, because it's not the default system mailer (Mail).
but, we`ll have a look at it, maybe small wrapper add-on would solve this.

-After I got avast Mac updated to 3.03, the following things are happening.
1)Every time I try to shut down the system, the application "Mail" starts and
pops up the window that says something like this : "The application "Mail"  
canceled the shut down. Finish "Mail" before shutting down." So I finish it and
try to shut down. Then the same thing happens. It goes on and on.  I've
noticed I need to leave "Mail Support" in Preferences of avast unchecked to
shut down the system.

yes, there's no need to invoke mail when you use thunderbird.

2)When I boot the system, it sometimes happens that two icons of avast appear
on the Dock and two main windows of avast pop up. Each of them is a new
version(3.03).
Do you have any advice or suggestion about these 1) & 2)?


It's probably the only one sideefect of installing one avast over another one. try to switch on-off the persistent option in preferences.
should clean this mess.

1) Home come my "last successful update attempt" always says "not yet" while "last time anything updated" shows the same date as "last update attempt".  Does that mean updates are not successful?



2) Does Avast Mac use the same virus DB as the PC version?

Hallo, as far as you have the latest VPS (and it seems you have it, just check), they have to be succesful.
Seems like a flaw, will be fixed too. Thanks for reporting.

Hi, zilog.

Thank you for your quick response.

I uninstalled avast and re-installed new one.
It seems the problem of its double appearance ceases thus far.

I wonder if it is a normal behavior that the application "Mail" cancels the process of shutting
down the system as long as the option of "Mail Support" in Preferences of avast is checked.

I do hope Thunderbird will get supported by avast mac edition in the near future!

It's Mail in its configuration state, isn't it? Because: avast invokes it, but mail knows that it's for the first time (= no account is set up yet)), so it goes to the initial configuration-wizard, which blocks.

Hallo,
it does look like app (the gui, not daemon) crash upon its startup, right before the kext is loaded (just one second after it goes up). Is this true? Or what is the exact scenario which has led to this crash?

regards,
pc

I'm new to avast! and wanted to try it. After 3.08 installation it asks for a license. How do I get a trial license?

Hallo, you are the second one who's reporting this flaw - it should, of course, start with a 60 day trial.
I will check it tommorow. thanks for reporting this.

Hallo, it's rather a consequence of the new installer - what would help you now is to delete this file (in your home directory):

~/Library/Preferences/com.avast.MacAvast.plist

... now, it will happily install the new trial, not confused by old preferences from the previous version (which will be lost, on the other hand).
version 3.09 will solve this flaw in the installer.

Re: SOON - Avast! for Mac release candidate 3.09 pkg
« Reply #25 on: May 20, 2010, 03:13:30 AM »
I installed 3.0.7 pkg

All works well, incremental updates, persistent, hide, after-close support etc.

However, if I switch on Mail support it complains:

"Mail Support Inconsistency, Mail preferences were changed outside Avast! ....."

If I go for "Active" and then try to logout I get:

"The application Mail canceled logout"

If I then run:

Disk Utility > Repair Permissions

I can then logout gracefully.

But after login and then try to logout once more I get:

"The application Mail canceled logout"

again.

For now I have to run Avast without Mail support if I want to logout without running Disk Utility.

Is there a fix ?

Thank you

Timoto

P.S. I also tried this:

Disk Utility > Repair Permissions

Turn on Mail support (no error message this time)

Logout gracefully

Login

Logout:

"The application Mail canceled logout"

It seems that after login the bug comes back.

Hallo,
probably, you don't use Mail, but you have chosen mail support in avast's preferences. just tick the preferences off, quit avast, and there should be no interaction since this.

please, confirm whether this is your case, of  whether the flaw is related to something different.

Thanks for the reply.

Yes, Mail IS being used.

If Mail support is on, Mail prevents system logout.

If Mail support is off, System can logout normally.

Hallo,
please, inspect Mail's preferences, the "rule" section - there should be exactly one avast's line. Just delete it, and then, from avast, click mail support on/off from avast's preferences, things should go in sync.

Couldn't install versiĆ³n 3.07. The installers fails to "run preflight script"... What does it mean, and how can I avoid it?
