About Home Edition
« on: July 07, 2004, 02:04:52 PM »
Hi,

I saw in the Pro Edition that all the packers wasn't selected.

In Home Edition, the packers are selected by default or how can I know wich are selected?

Thanks

You mean in the on-demand or on-access scanner?

Please be a bit more specific.

Thanks
Vlk

The settings in Home and Pro are identical. The difference is that in Pro, you can customize them. On Home, you can't.

With your reply, I can conclude that the Home Edition doesn't have all the unpackers enable, right?

For the on-access scanner, you are right.
In the on-demand scanner, you can enable all supported packers by the checkbox "Scan archive files".

We, shgoh and I, tried a lot to 'solve' this issue... I mean, the deftasks.xml could do it right? But, it is reloaded after boot and all the customization is lost...  :(

Maybe a deftasks.xml automatic generator could be created ?

Someone interested ?   ;D

Le Doc, each boot, a 'new' deftasks.xml file will be 'created' according to the defaults of the program. Any changes will be lost...
Do you mean an automatic generator of the 'default' file? I think it won't be possible as it is defined somewhere 'inside' avast code.
Of course, I can be completely wrong as I am not a programmer  ::)

Hey, as I said about 10 times already, the changes in the deftasks.xml do get lost but the ones in the actual configuration storage DO NOT. These are of course persisted!!

Please re-read my original post... :)

Don't get angry with us, please  8)

I do not found your original post but I'm confused: what is 'actual configuration storage'?
For me, the configuration are stored into Windows Registry, avast4.ini and deftasks.xml file... What am I missing?

Excuse me, Vlk, I really do not understand deftasks.xml. Sorry boring you, but I tried  :-\

I believe the actual storage is the Avast4.mdb file when Database=ODBC (and probably Avast4.xml for Database=XML? just guessing...)

I'm not angry. It's just that no matter how hard I try to explain I don't quite seem to be understood... a bit frustrating, gotta say... :)

Here's the original explanation: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=1;action=display;threadid=5492;start=msg40916#msg40916

The " Configuration Storage" is indeed the avast4.mdb in case of Database=ODBC and avast4.xml in case of Database=XML. In short, the file where avast stores its current configuration (besides the ini file).
