Installation issue
« on: May 30, 2010, 06:02:02 PM »
When I try to install avast free on my slightly modified windows installation, it says I do not meet the requirements when I do. The debug log shows:

30.05.2010 10:48:19 general: Err:Your operating system does not meet the minimum requirements. You can install avast! only on Windows 2000 with Service Pack 4 or higher.

Is there any way to get it to ignore that and install anyway ?

You can't install avast in a server environment.

What exactly does it mean "slightly modified windows installation"?
I'm not aware of a server version of XP...
