First time for reporting here, though have been a Comodo CIS home user for around a couple of years now and trying to talk to my work place about using CIS on their office PC’s and notebook’s, too - but, still working on that one.
My problem is, and has been over this weekend just gone, I have a computer with CIS PRemium v 7.0.317799.4142, Database version 18849, showing ‘Last Update 2 days ago’ and now Windows is flagging up as AV out of date.
The computer in question is: Windows Vista Business 32 bit, CIS version as above.
I have come across this issue before, though not on this computer, and I got around it (after a little bit of Google 'ing), you can download the ‘base.cav’ file and import manually, which resolved this for me before - but, not this time.
If I click the Update button (at the foot of the main window, on the group of 5 buttons), it goes through all the motions okay and checks and ticks very options all okay and basically says ‘No updates’ - which, I find a litte unusal. And the fact I have downloaded the ‘base.cav’ file to try and manually update, does have me a little baffled now!
My only final thought to do, but I thought I would post a message here first in case I overlooking something, is to;
Uninstall CIS Premium (after a backup/export of settings first).
Restart the computer.
Download and install latest version of CIS Premium.
Hi and welcome itpete,
Database updates are delayed for some unknown reason.
As a workaround to stop Windows flagging/nagging it as out of date, rename the ‘bxxxxxxx.cav’ file to ‘bxxxxxxxxold.cav’ and then either import or download the entire Database again.
As a final step, reboot the system to allow deletion of the old file.
i was having the same exact problem. for 2 days no updates but says its up to date. just now i tried to manual update it. it finally updated. what a relief. so anyone having that problem , it may be resolved now… thank you
No problems. This was not the wrong place to post it. It just turned out that this time the problem did not reside with CIS on your system, but with the Comodo infrastructure in the cloud.
Thanks for reporting, and if you encounter anything like this again don’t hesitate to report it here. It’s much better to assume it’s a bug, and report a strange action, than to ignore it and deprive the devs of information they may need to fix a legitimate bug.
