  • Hi, without the logs, it is bit hard to say anything for sure. For some reason it has managed to run the Launch Pad self-upgrade (CCF Basic TP54 package), but failed to continue rest of the upgrades. One most likely reason is that some of the latebound (localizations, customizations, helps, settings, ...) installations…

  • Additional note about the Windows 8 support. Unfortunately this release still doesn't support installing to Windows 8 developer preview.

  • Hi all, this has the same root problem as what is causing the problem in thread "Computer Security Reports that it is Turned Off". We know already how to fix it, but due to unexpected problems with creating the hotfix, it is not yet fully ready. We will release the hotfix for both of these problem tomorrow. Petri

  • Hi Nmousedk, we dropped the Health Check from launch pad as having a separate web application on the local launch pad did not work that well for everyone. Link to Health Check is still available from the Computer Security help menu. Petri

  • Hi, unfortunately for IS2012 beta / TP program FF5 support won't arrive on 8th of July as it is using totally different architecture. We hope to get it released in TP38 (in 2 weeks time) or latest TP39 release (in 4 weeks time). TP37 planned to be released this week won't have it yet. Petri
  • Hi, If you are using the IS2012 beta / TP36, you cannot protect settings with password. In the new product all settings are going to be protected by Windows user access control. So to have protection, you need to have UAC enabled and use different windows user accounts as you protect all windows settings too. Petri

Biggest issue is streaming video where the firewall blocks it completely in Normal - so I turned the firewall completely off as I cound not find any rules that allowed it to work proerly and I don't have time to tinker…
  • Hi Aaron and Mothballs, can I still just verify that did you have these issues with F-Secure IS2011 or with the Technology Preview TP3#? With the new Technology Preview, we have 1 confirmed error where user cannot get the firewall to work properly without changing to "Allow all" profile. But I'm not aware of other "total…

But that wasn't a suprise as the problem happens in winsxs folder, which content depends totally on what you happen to have installed on your computer. So to help us forward, could you try to see, if there are some…
