Well, I went to upgrade to the current version today, although I had a v3 installed. Because I wasn’t sure which if any upgrade download would work I just re-downloaded the whole thing again.
Then, after I uninstalled, I chose NOT to reboot, and then continued with the installation. However, cfpres.dll apparently was then deleted on boot, and so now the FW will not function, nor can I uninstall it now, either with the installer, or manually (per the pinned post above!
Basically, the installer won’t install unless I uninstall, and when I uninstall it fails to find cfpers.dll, and then exits. If I tell in “No” don’t uninstall, it just exits! (That should be fixed!!)
Finally, I am unable to delete the non-plug-n-play Comodo devices, or run the Control Panels uninstall per the pinned post. So, how do I get this thing to install again now?
This means that right now I have no firewall running and cannot install one!
P.S. I would have to say that although this is the first bad experience I’ve had with this firewall, I would say that the installer SHOULD NOT require the previous version be uninstalled if at all possible, this is just a pain in the ***. My 2 cents.
No, your system is still protected when it first boots. There is typically a substantial delay before the CFP icon appears in the system tray.
I’m sorry it took so much work to get your issues resolved, but persistence pays. I think we’ll finally see a cleaner, leaner and more-robust version of CFP released before too much longer. Let’s hope that our collective patience will be rewarded.
