I ran Comodo CFP_Setup_22.214.171.1246_XP_Vista_x32.exe twice.
First time to uninstall the patched Comodo 126.96.36.1998, second time to install it.
Same story ... cmdagent.exe is not running.
From your first reply:
If that fails, let us know what security software you are running, the version of CFP you are using and whether you are using any Startup manager or tray manager software.
I'm running both StartupCopPro (PCMag) and WinPatrol. Neither of them is preventing "Comodo\cfp.exe" -s from running.
I just realized that cmdagent.exe is a service. Its status is AUTOMATIC but Stopped.
I tried to start it from Control Panel/Services and got this error:
Could not start the COMODO Firewall Pro Helper Service service on Local Computer.
Error 1058: The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no .
See above re "disabled" - Its AUTOMATIC,but I don't know what "enabled devices" it should have "associated with it"?
FWIW: I don't see anything in Event Viewer that appears related to Comodo.
I seem to recall another problem like this that had no resolution despite our best efforts.
You may want to try installing the bug fix version - see:
for the way to get it.
I assume the "test version" referred to there is superseded by Comodo 188.8.131.526?
How close are we getting to: "no resolution despite our best efforts"
Question: what functionality is COMODO providing/missing with cmdagent.exe not running?
Edit fix: full error msg above s/b:
Error 1058: The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.
