i’m using cis version 5.12 and like many have had trouble getting it to update definitions.
i just tried downloading it and do the manually activation via safe mode then rebooting.
Now the page said “Latest Database Version: 22597” but after rebooting it tells me i have 22569
not 22597. i try clicking the update again they download but on finalizing it stays [at]90% with 50% cpu usage, then fails.
i just think if it says the latest version is 22597 thats what should be downloaded, not 22569.
*Also they say they update every 2 days… last update i got was june 24th (3 days ago not 2)
this tells me comodo does NOT update regular or as listed.
Hi John Buchanan,
seems its only working for newer cis versions.
i reinstalled cis 5.12 tried to update from the default #1 version of definitions, of course that failed.
typical definition update failure message, so tried to download the latest one again which said
Latest Database Version: 22600 but after replacing the bases.cav files in safe mode again,
i only walked away with version 22569
The confusion stems from the advertised version is not identical to what version the full A/V defs is.
The advertised version is the latest full + incremental updates. Currently that is 22612.
So if you install the current bases.cav and ABOUT shows 22569, then after out-of-date flag is thrown on the play, click update now and incrementals should download and after it spins its gears at 90% will finish at v22612.
Are you saying that it fails doing the update after you installed the latest full A/V defs, and ABOUT shows v22569?
hi WxMan1, sorry its taken me a while to reply.
But Yes that is exactly what I mean.
the about will only show the latest full A/V def’s, and fails on any attempt at the increment updates.
so it leaves me with just the installed latest full A/V file i downloaded.
