Great job, Comodo! :smiley:

Thanks for the update :-TU

I have the previous CIS installer i.e 8.2…4508.
I am going to install CIS.
Guess installing 4508 & then upgrading through the GUI would be better instead of downloading fresh installer for the new one.
Upgrading through GUI will be a small update, right?

“Sandbox does not block malicious launched from 'Quarantine”
What was this bug i.e what does this means?

Hi all,

Updates for existing CIS 6.x, CIS 7.x and CIS 8.x users are delayed a little bit. Sorry for inconvenience.

Are you sure about that? I just updated CIS to via internal updater.

Thank you downloading my firewall wight now :slight_smile: :-TU

We stopped updates at the moment. We found an issue at production and need to fix it first.

How much time will it take?

Hi Everybody,

There are no problems with the installers for now (except windows 8.1). We need to have a check on the updates (there may be some issues on binary updates).

I will let you know once we fix the problems. Thank you very much for your understanding.

Kind Regards

What is the problem with the installer with Win 8.1?

Awesome! Downloading as we speak!

Thanks for the update Comodo. :-TU

Does somebody know already - is purging of unused files already implemented ?

Thanks :-TU :love:

In reply to Peter Pan:
No, sadly they have NOT re-added the purging of non-existant files in this new build ( I will re-raise the request…


Hi, can you please tell me when the upgrade will be again available via autoupdate?
thanks .

A Comodo staff member confirmed that purge will be re-added in a later release, link here.

She talked about “big release”…this one is more like a hotfix than big release :wink:

Hello Mike,

This is a minor hotfix release so the main purpose of the release if the bug fixes. We will be adding the purge button with the next major release .

For your kind information,
