Update problem

Recommended Posts

I am having problems updating to the lastest Definitions Files. My Ad-Aware software screen shows that my last update was 0149.0140, but when I try to update to the latest files, 0149.0141, 0149.0142, 0149.0143, 0149.0144, 0149.0145, the Update Manager says "Software is already up-to-date", without even downloading the new files, and it still shows my last update was 0149.0140. This problem started in the last week. My Ad-Aware version is: 8.0.8. Would updating to the latest version of Ad-Aware do any good? Does anyone else have this problem? Edited by Whateveruwant

Somebody else had this problem:

I'm beginning to think maybe Lavasoft changed the server location of the definition file download. The last time I saw this happen, the defs were a few months old - turns out the user's system clock/calendar was inaccurate.

However, you already have the last version of Anniversary Edition 8.0.8, so there's no more software updates. If you've tried updating through the GUI, tray icon, and start menu to no avail, you can also update definitions manually:

Thanks Visitor, for informing Lavasoft for me. It's so annoying when new updates are posted, and when I attempt to download them, Update Manager says, "software is already up-to-date".

Per Lavasoft:

[quote name='LS Padraig An Ollainn' date='Feb 4 2010']Def Updates in AE are working as normal again.

Current Version: 0149:0146

(On a side note) We would recommend users to 'upgrade' to 8.1 anyway as that version is superior to Anniversary Edition.[/quote]
