Wanting to be of assistance and help out a bit, I uninstalled 2.2.0.11.  Uninstall (using Add/Remove) went surprisingly well.

Then after rebooting, I installed beta 2.3.  Install was truly effortless and the reboot was problem free. 

Then ran every program / application / update request for applications that I could think.  It all went flawlessly .. very smooth indeed.

Then I edited the registry to change OSMODE from 0 to 3 and did a reboot.  As reported by others and thus as I was expecting, I get a "Comodo is closing ... do you want" window when I shut down or reboot.  But I must observe, on a rather simple configuration such as mine 2.3 (and your new installer) is looking good.  My "Event Viewer" remains clean and problem free.  Nice going.   :D

Well, maybe this isn't as much help as I wanted but I'll keep pushing my system and will be back if anything comes up.

No news is good news - and in the case of a firewall log file - it's GREAT news! Glad to hear it went so well for you. continue test,please and post any issues you find here.

Thanks in advance,
Ewen :-)

Re: Here is the Beta version of CPF 2.3 :-) - FAULTING
« Reply #107 on: July 01, 2006, 09:40:50 PM »
I am using the new beta 2.3 version, just installed this afternoon. Previously I was using 2.2.0.11 but uninstalled 2.2.0.11 before installing the beta.  WinXP SP2 FireFox
--------------------------------------
I was on-line making a purchase.  I sent a copy of the order to FinePrint 5.54.  I print on-line information and screens like this on a regular basis.

Anyway, after I had printed a couple of different screens, FinePrint 5.54 apparently faulted ... then quickly (seconds thereafter) CPF also faulted and I got the WinXP notice that FinePrint and CPF needed to shut down.  I then found my internet connection had also been lost ... and then FinePrint also crashed (very unusual ... FinePrint never mis-behaves) ... so I rebooted and went back on-line.  I completed the order, printed several more pages without any problems this second time.

I hope this is helpful.

Here is the error message from XPs "Event Viewer" for CPF.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Think I found an issue.

The beta blocks PDA syncing with MS ActiveSync 4.1 and above.  Even allowing all applications access, and replacing the default "block all IP in" network rule with an "allow all IP in" rule does not work.  Nothing shows up on the log as far as to why the connection isn't successful.  Setting Comodo's overall security level to "Allow All," however, lets the PDA sync. 

I read earlier that SPI rules are always enforced, and not modifiable.  Do we know if this is a set thing?

Do a search for ActiveSync. Egemen has done apost that outline the particular requirements to get this working with CPF. There were a couple of ports you had to explicitly allow.

Thank you for your reply.  I may not have been clear in my original post.  I explicitly allowed *all* ports.  I also logged blocked activity.  Nothing showed in the log.

As an update, I think the issue is a bit more complicated than I thought, as it seems to not occur consistently.  Trying to narrow down precisely when it happens.

I realise that you have allowed ALL ports, but apparently you stil have to explicitly ALLOW the specific ports for Active Sync. Dunno why, but Egemens response seemed to indicate this, and he's the man!

Just a question, will the final version of CPF 2.3 require us to uninstall our current version? Or will it just update like usual?

I actually tried opening just the specific ports before I opened all ports.  I didn't want to particularly leave all ports open, and only did that after opening the specific ports didn't work for the purpose of testing.  The results were the same either way.

Just to update...

Turning off high-performance mode seems to get rid of the problem, as far as I can tell so far.

I'm actually going through the application behavior rules to check if any of them are the problem; it is HORRIBLY frustrating that blocks due to app behavior rules don't show up in the log, so I have to troubleshoot by turning them on and off one by one.  An option to let those show in the log would be a FANTASTIC change.

Out of curiosity, am I right in posting bug fix/suggestions as replies to this thread, or was I supposed to start a new one?

Hi!
I noticed, Melih, that you said we need to uninstall previous CPF before installing the beta.  Is there anyway of retaining the existing configuration/rules, etc?

Since installing 2.3 I suddenly noticed that the Max Log Size setting is not being remember between reboots, it always resets to 5MB.

In addition, log file entries also disappear between reboots. However, this doesn't seem to be consistent, since some entries are remembered. I can't see any pattern at this point.

I tried stopping CPF manually before rebooting and playing with OSMode's 0 & 3. But, this had no impact on the above.
