i have made numerous additions to the firewall and defense policies. i have even disabled all functions (AV, FW, D+) of CIS without much if any increase in success rates. i also tried “exiting” CIS which does increase application start success rates marginally.
in fact, the only way i have been able to get the java application to run without fail is after uninstalling CIS.
i am open to suggestions or work around methods other than those which i have found via searching “splash: recv failed comodo” as none of those have been successful in the least.
This is a huge issue. I finally uninstalled comodo so that I could open a simple java app. Now I just reinstalled b/c i do not want to be without the protection and hoping it would magically be fixed, but of course it’s not. Is there any fit for this? Is it even acknowledged that there is a problem? I see there’s a forum post about this from months ago without resolution. Please help.
Edit: For instance, if I try to open the link several times (10+ times) “Enter The Gathering Place to play this game” found at http://www.gametableonline.com/gameinfo.php?gid=22 it will usually work eventually. So Comodo doesn’t always block it, but it usually does. So there’s got to be some bug. It should either always block it or not and we should be able to make it a trusted app and never have a problem again, right?
I also have the exact problem being unable to run Java Web Start apps. I also get the splash screen error.
I have tried changing every setting in Comodo and I don’t use D+. Sun is marked as a trusted vendor, even entire Java directory is marked as my safe files. There is no sign in any of the normal firewall event logs of Java Web Start being blocked but still it doesn’t work.
I run Win XP SP3 with JRE 1.6u13.
If I uninstall Comodo it works fine.
Is it possible to turn on some other (hidden?) more technical log?
I really hope for a solution very soon or I am forced to move away from Comodo to something that works.
Has anyone found a solution for this? I too have added sun and jave to every allowed list in Comodo. However, the only way it works is to uninstall Comodo. Like the others there is nothing in a log to suggeste javaws.exe is being blocked.
When using the RC2 there is a program update waiting that gets installed in two steps. The first step is an update simulation testing updating from 3.8 to 3.9. The second step is the real program update.
I have the same problem, and I fixed it for now by changing to a different firewall, still running Comodo av and D+.
THE PROBLEM IS IN THE FIREWALL, NOT THE ANTIVIRUS OR D+. THE PROBLEM IS STILL THERE IN VER. 3.9, AND IT HAPPENS ONLY IN VISTA. MY XP MACHINES ARE WORKING FINE.
I did try different settings for days on end, and finally gave up. I do hope that this will be fixed soon. I have to use programs based on java, so I can’t use the Comodo firewall in Vista until it’s fixed.
I am having this problem with XP 64bit and comodo 3.12.111745.560. I have tried many things but none work. About 10% of the time I can load the java. What is the deal. I would have thought this to have been fixed by now. I am trying to run the jnlp directly from my desktop.
I was having this problem too. I could get one javaws application to work but others would give the same error message. As there are 32 and 64 bit binaries for javaws and various libraries I was thinking that perhaps the firewall is getting confused so I had a mess around and found a way to get all working.
The fix was to remove “sun microsystems” from the my trusted software vendors. Then to remove all entries referring to javaws.exe in Firewall Network Security (Application rules) list. After doing that setting the defence and firewall mode to “safe mode” (not training) then open up a java web start (javaws.exe) application and when the firewall popup appears select “allow” and tick the remember tick box. This should only need doing once and after that all javaws applications should work without the error.
Hope that helps someone. I still think Comodo need to look into testing this more thoroughly as there seems to be some sort of conflict when running multiple javaws apps when running Comodo.
