Great news Vlk! Have just updated to AIS v7.0.1407 with the built-in program updater. First I thought the update went wrong, seems like it (the progress indicator) freezed and get stuck for a minute, but I just waited, and voila´ , the update worked just fine!  :)

I've decided to format my laptop and install avast! 7 from clean. Looking forward to see some global success with the new features.
Congrats to entire avast! team for the (so far successful) launch of the 7th version!

still no way to update from the UI ... guess the bug was in beta 3 updater (and not just in the RC installer package?) ... downloading the file and will try to update, otherwise...>>> clean install.

What a mess.  AIS
Tried to update from last beta to this via updater. Doesn't work.
Downloaded full package - cannot read installation file.
Downloaded package again (exact same file size) Installed
System said license had expired - inserted license file - accepted
All shields disabled, cannot turn on. rebooted twice, still cant get "network shield" on

Second machine - same issues.

Win 7 / 64 all latest patches - drivers


Update - turned off all shields, rebooted twice. ran CC cleaner. Re-enabled shields. Rebooted. All seems well now.

Is this an update from a previous beta? I'm afraid that won't work in most cases (works in some).
A clean install is preferable though.

Thanks

Problem with installer not away...
"Error reading product data from ... setup"
Have to uninstall, reinstall and make all settings manual like in rc1? What annoying...is there another trick to get this working without that?
Thx
