CFP BETA has been released! [CLOSED]

Hi guys,

We would like to announce the availability of the COMODO Firewall Pro
There are many fixes and improvements in this release. Here are a few of them :

Previous configurations exported are not compatible with this one because of the major arhitectural changes. So please try clean install only.

Major changes

1 - Summary section has been finalized
2 - Introduced 2 new modes for the Defense+ : “Installation Mode” and “Clean PC Mode”
3 - Introduced “Pseudo-COM” interface protection : which protects priviledge escellation and other serious operaing system services e.g. service control manager
4 - The Defense+ now learns during the booting and related BSOD(SESSION_INITIALIZATION_FAILED3) bug has been fixed
5 - Configuration Import/Export windows has been redesigned
6 - Many Vista and x64 based bugs fixed
7 - Defense+ Common Tasks section has been redesigned
8 - Firewall Stealth Logic has been slightly changed to improve compatibility with various advanced network confiurations
9 - Automatic detection of new private networks added

Known Issues:

1 - Firewall DoS protection is not active right now
2 - Tips are not active right now
3 - The default configuration does not contain all critical resources e.g. registry keys, COM interfaces etc.
4 - There are compatibility issues with some other security products waiting for investigation

Edit : We do realize that we should provide a very good documentation about CFP 3 in detail. So sorry for the lack of documentation in these beta versions.

Ah ! Enfin.


Lookin’ forward to tryin’ it. out. Downloadin’ now


Yay, thanks for that!

Won’t be a to big problem, hopefully my router will do that job for me :slight_smile:

I’ll download it now, and hopefully, this time nothing will crash ;D


I have been waiting for several days

Aaaargh! Downloaded (surprisingly quick, considering the anticipation), but can’t install it :cry:

The installer tells me that I have a Beta version already installed, offers to uninstall it, but then can’t find the Beta.

I did try the Alpha, but got rid of that a few weeks ago.

Any ideas, please?




Based on the presumption that you have no Comodo firewall installed…

Open the registry (go to Start/Run, type “regedit” - no quotes). Navigate to the key
HKLM/Security/Software/Comodo. Right-click and Delete.

If you DO have a Comodo firewall installed, reboot into SafeMode and use the built-in uninstaller (Start/All Programs/Comodo/Firewall/Uninstall) to uninstall.

It would also be good (IMO) to install this Beta (and all firewall, AV, or other security product) in SafeMode to avoid installation conflicts.


Thanks LM.
I have 2.4 installed; I did have the last alpha but got rid of it.

I’m reluctant to uninstall 2.4 and also the Alpha warning might still be there.

Before trying to install v3, I stopped v2, stopped CmdAgent, prevented Comodo from starting and renamed v2’s folder, so that Comodo wouldn’t start, then rebooted.

I’ll try in Safe Mode - always have ZA (I put this on a Vista laptop, so have the .exe) if necessary 88)

Just on time, I just reinstalled Windows Vista, will install it immediatly.

No, even in Safe Mode I get the same message, even with Comodo not starting.

Very reluctant to uninstall v2, as lots of training has taken place!


(:CLP) (:CLP) (:CLP) (:CLP) Trying this very moment and by now LOVING IT (:LOV)


In this thread there is a batch file written for v3 Alpha to address this very issue.
The only thing I’m not sure about is similarity of path for v2.4’s registry entry. I think there’s a slight difference, but I’m not sure, since I haven’t had 2.4 in a while. In v3 the registry Configuration path is:
HKLM/System/Software/Comodo/Firewall Pro and in v2.4 I think it’s HKLM/System/Software/Comodo/Firewall. You want to get rid of the v3 path while retaining the v2.4 (if they’re different; they must be, or you wouldn’t get the message you’re getting).

As for uninstalling v2.4, this thread has a batch file written specifically to export all the Config for you, so you can import it back in later if need be.,2366.0.html

Hope that helps,


Thanks for this LM.

Much to my surprise, I tried again - without closing down v2 - and it worked. Had to reboot; the v2 folder is now empty (so was Beta actually v2?) and v3 installed.
Now clicking on lotsofthings!
