"Program Settings..." in tray system...
« on: November 17, 2004, 05:27:49 PM »
Hi,

I installed the avast! Home Edition in another pc, and the "Program Settings...", in tray system, didn't work until I clicked in the "Start avast! Antivirus".

Is this normal, or a bug?

Thanks

What OS is this? I'm not able to simulate the problem.

Thanks Vlk.

Strange... Mine is the same and it's ok?
Is it a fresh installation or an update of the 4.1?
(I updated 4.1 > beta > 4.5)

I did a few fresh installs of v4.5 on my XP Home SP2 machine this week. :-( Each time, I got this "Program Settings" quirk.

What exactly does it mean that it "didn't work"? Nothing happens, or some kind of error message is given?

I solve the problem with a new Registration (use the same Home version number key but registered again, enter the number...) and a boot.  ;)
