Problem updating the Ultimate version

Post by Victor Delta » Thu Oct 01, 2015 5:25 pm

Have been using Avant Ultimate version for years (recently build 27). Over the last 24 hours, I have repeatedly downloaded the new version - 28 - but everytime I install it I end up in a loop where a dialogue box comes up saying there is a new version and do I want to install it. If click yes, it extracts some files but then returns to the dialogue box again. If I click no, the browser opens but does not open any webpage.

Is there a way round this problem please. (I've already tried uninstalling and starting from scratch again, but to no avail.)

Download the latest build and reboot your computer first before installing. Just to make sure nothing of Avant is running when installing the new version.

Doesn't seem to resolve problem so have reverted (temporarily I hope) to build 27.

I can also confirm problems with the 28th! That ''famous'' blue screen of death, when tabs just don't want to open and ''Something went wrong with this webpage. ...'' appears. 27th was stable, almost never had such experience like with the old versions, and now this issue comes back again?!? :thumbdown:

So, you still cannot use the build 28 via downloading and installing the latest version manually?
Try this:
1 Backup your Avant profiles first
2 Uninstall Avant cimpletely.
3 dowbload the latest version from our website
4 Install the latest version manually, then can you open the browser without the dialogue box?
