Per Chiron, have started this thread for advice on getting version 6 to work. ???
Been running CIS firewall and defense+ happily for ever alongside AvastFree. Now on CIS v5.12. Rare need to post. Fancied v6 for new Kiosk etc. No point waiting for updater as better to fresh install and re-enter rulesets.
Downloaded cispremium_installer.exe file version 6.0.2566.2708 124MB.
Uninstalled v5.12, rebooted, clean installed v6. Opted out of AV, Geekbuddy and Yahoo. Systray icon and widget took maybe ten minutes to appear, though Action Centre reported CIS firewall on and processes running in Task Manager. Icon and widget finally appeared after a very long time but clicking either had no effect. GUI finally appeared after another very very long time - five minutes? - but wouldn’t interact with me either. Tried uninstalling, system restore point, and reinstalling. Same symptoms. Uninstalled. Reinstalled v5.12 , config imported, and life back to normal.
Wondered if Msoft EMET causing issue so uninstalled EMET. No change. So went back to v5.12. Working perfect.
Haven’t tried safe mode instal as can only get back to v5.12 by installing v5.10 and updating. Bit of a pain if the problem is still my system - which it has to be if other folks can get v6 to work.
v6 seemed to be running, just ignoring me. :embarassed:
Sorry, posted in wrong place. Should be on install help board.
