let program through firewall in Windows 8?
« on: May 07, 2012, 08:23:01 PM »
I have installed Version 7 Internet Security in Windows 8 Customer Preview.
The Store app doesn't work because the Firewall won't let it through.
I can turn the Firewall off for 10 minutes and then it works.

How do I get Avast to ask me if it is ok for the Store app to have internet access so I can easily fix the problem?
I tried to add application to the list of program allowed but it didn't work. Must have done something wrong.
