Serious bug in download!!!!!!

Post by mathman » Wed Feb 20, 2013 10:11 pm

This morning I downloaded AB 2013 build 10 and a bug that is in 2013, but not in 2012 has remained. When I tried to download AB 2012 I got AB 2013 build 11 instead and it (ultimate version) is unusable! I tried to get AB 2012 (not ultimate) and I got AB 2013 build 11 (not ultimate), which is what I am using now.

You need to fix two things immediately - the links to AB 2012 should get AB 2012 and AB 2013 build 11 needs to be fixed. The problem in AB 2013 build 11 is that it freezes almost immediately after loading.

There is a work around for the freeze in AB 2013 build 11. Go to the bottom of the display (quick start area) and click on blank area will unfreeze for the next step. This often has to be repeated. I am using it now since I can't get back to AB 2012.

I think you ended up with a damaged installation when you installed the beta 10 Lite version on top of the beta 9 Ultimate version.

I'm presently running Avant Browser 2013 Ultimate build 11, which is available at http://dl.filekicker.com/send/file/1787 ... asetup.exe, and it's working pretty well. There are still quite a few bugs that need to be fixed, but you might find that reinstalling 2013 build 11 on top of your current installation will fix some of the problems you're having. If not, try backing up your profile, uninstalling Avant, installing Avant 2013 Ultimate build 11, and restoring your profile. As long as your profile isn't damaged, this should clear up most of the problems (except for the bugs that remain to be fixed).

I got the same version for AB 2013 build 11. I would like to install AB 2012 for now, but the link is no longer there. Also after I first ran into trouble with build 11 I installed ab 11.7, so I presume the issue you raised about build 10 was not present. Moreover when I was using build 10 I didn't have the freeze problem. I wanted to go back to ab 2012 because of a tab problem that had not yet been fixed.

Many thanks!!! I am back on ab 2012. I'll keep the .exe in case ab 2013 runs into more trouble later after build 11.
