For me I basically just right clicked the installer and picked run as administrator. In any following windows pop ups I checked the box for always trust Comodo.
Then In Windows manually disable windows firewall and defender (some leave defender running).
Also disable notifications otherwise you get bugged about no firewall.
Because of being a new install I put Defense + in Training mode to learn everything for a while.
After a couple of reboots all settled in nicely.
Now running Firewall Custom, Defense+ Safe Mode, AV Statefull.
So according to that link, the AV vendors have known about the new API since the release of Vista SP1 over a year ago. How come Comodo still haven’t integrated it so we wouldn’t be in this position with Windows 7 (and soon to be on Vista as well!)
Maybe the reason is to maintain XP compatibility. I’m guessing that XP won’t be getting the new API, so I guess that in a while, Comodo and other AVs will need to support both APIs if they want to remain compatible with XP, Vista & Win7.
I PM’d Egemen asking when he expects to have this resolved.
Note too, that developers have an 18-month grace period which ends in September.
Yes, the database version is the latest. It is the reporting format that needs to change, not the database.
When Vista was released to RTM, it had been in the hands of developers for over a year. Despite this, it took some vendors over 6 months to release Vista-compatible software (and this includes quite a few hardware drivers >:(). The same had occurred when XP was released, although the lag was shorter. I think the software/hardware vendors are getting lazy. Each new OS version uses some API extension over the previous version, and a version test can help use the proper one. Of course it would be nice if Microsoft would allow older APIs to continue being used, but at least there’s still some compatibility left, unlike Apple’s OSes…
Are you sure? Is there the download link for the latest BETA version of CPF ???
Because i don’t see any link, only another thread of this forum.
Please, where can I download the latest version of CPF.
