incorrect expiration date since avast 6.0.1000
« on: March 12, 2011, 03:30:41 AM »
I registered avast today and noticed in the GUI the following:

expiration date: 3/11/2012 4:29 pm.


The date is a day behind and the time is an hour ahead. this never happened with avast 5.0 and 5.1

If you count the registration day and the expiration day as full days, you have a full year registration. But do you really think this is a problem ???

The wrong expiration date was definitely noticeable and how hard is it for avast to fix this. I registered one computer on march 1 and the date said feb 29. Some like to know the exact date that they registered.

Leap year is in 2012.

OK, so the registration is not for 1 year, but rather 365 days... Is it really such a huge problem? :)

What do you want to have fixed? 2012 is a leap year, nothing to fix there.  ???

No, it's not off one day, it's perfectly fine. Leap year == 366 days.

Depends on your definition of correct apparently. It's correct already as it is in your very first post.

Yeah, "here". It's 22:34 here. Check your timezone settings. No idea what "its not the 11th either" is supposed to mean either.  ???

I'd conclude this thread with "some people simply have too much time on their hands".
