Manual Updates?

6 posts in this topic

Sorry if this question has been posted over and over.

 

Ad-aware 2007 now uses "core.aawdef" as the update reference file.

But the homepage displays "defs.ref" Not compatible.

 

I have two questions:

Where can I manually (yes manually) download "core.aawdef" ?

Why does your home page display "defs.ref" (defs.zip) as a download ?

 

Please help, because I'm very confused here!!

I'll keep checking back here to see any replies.

 

Thanks,

Kim

Hi,

I can't re-enact in your mind what the problem is, sorry for that. :rolleyes:

Run a scheduled update or click the update button that's all. :D

Current version 0004.0000.

Hope it helps

Regards

Raziel

I work at the technical support help desk at a university. One of the things that made AdAware SE useful to us is the fact that you could manually update the program. Often machines that we look at are unable to connect to the Internet. Is there a way to manually update AA 2007?

I'm not sure how to make this any clearer!

I also don't understand why I can't get a clear answer.

 

I will try to help here

 

If I go to http://www.lavasoft.com and download the only free program Ad-Aware 2007 7.0.1.3

Then copy the program to a flash drive to take to an offline computer

Where do I find the updates to also download, to update the program?

 

I noticed that there is a link on http://www.lavasoft.com to http://dlserver.download.lavasoft.com/public/defs.zip

But after installation and directing to defs.ref, Ad-Aware 2007 cannot use this file

(which makes me wonder why it's there)

I have eventually worked out, that the program is looking for "core.aawdef"

But I cannot find a link to manually download this file.

 

I cannot be more clearer, and I expect that there are others like me, wondering how to do a manual update. And also what is "defs.zip" for now.

 

If I have missed something very simple, please let me know. I have gone back to your homesite, and gone over and over it, but cannot work it out. Where is core.aawdef and why is there defs.zip?

 

Please reply back, stating specifically what program uses defs.def now

And also specifically (and most importantly) where is the link for core.aawdef

 

If others could support me, by replying: "I'd like a link to core.aawdef too"; it would help me to know that I am not alone.

 

Thank-you

Kim

This is an oversight on our part. We are adding a download button for the new definitions file shortly.

This is, as Tobias said, an oversight on our part. We are adding download links for both Ad-Aware 2007 (core.zip) and Ad-Aware SE (defs.zip) to both the frontpage and the News from Research blog today.

 

In the meantime, the link to the latest definition file for Ad-Aware 2007 is:

http://download.lavasoft.com/public/core.zip
