Downloaded AB 11.7 Build 10 from three diverse places, but after install, keeps reporting 11.7 Build 7 in the About dialog...

What to think ?

Nope, not running in the Task Manager, either.

Strange brew. WIll try downloading it again and re-installing, using SlimBrowser or FF3 to do the download, etc.

Results.... nope, same "problem" on both.

Going to go to another machine entirely, download AB 11.7 B10, verify it's B10 on that machine, and then use USB stick to bring it over.

Have seen this happen a very rare few times for some reason...

Usually, resetting machine it happens on stops it from doing this, but the root cause is not usually known.

MUST be because it's Friday.... :crazy:

Well, only way to "fix" the AB 11.7 B10 that refused to install as that, was to manually delete the avant.exe executable (and only that one file) in the /program.....directory, and then let AB 11.7 B10 install without seeing an existing avant.exe file.

Works fine now.

Definitely MUST have been because it's Friday.

Or maybe there's a hurricane in the area.... :wtf:

Or something... :shock:

Well, Avant doesn't officially support upgrading in the first place. It just so happens that 99.9% of the time installing a new build over top of another works just fine. But there are those rare times when you really need to just uninstall Avant before you install a new build.

Well, as long as de-installing a past AB build 100% does not lose any settings, Bookmarks, History, etc., then that's not always a bad thing.

But every AB build and version in the past has indeed done the other 99.9% and installed over the top of the old superbly / quickly / safely...one wonders why stop now.

Then if that's the case, 99.9% of all apps seem to recognize an older install and this AB might offer to display something like "De-install older version as we install the newer, retaining all existing settings and user files?"

That would be a nice touch, indeed.

Yes, All the features should be customizable imo (Especially those that behaved diffrenetly in the previous builds.)

Though I like the new way.

Secondary PC same as primary but with Windows 7 x64 Ultimate as the OS.
