Huh? Orca replacing Avant according to my firewall

Post by Bob Loblaw » Sat Oct 15, 2005 9:40 pm

I've been using the alpha version for a couple of weeks with no problems. I installed the beta version today and when I go to start it, my firewall (Kerio) alerts me that it is replacing Avant (no, not as the default browser. As a program). When I click to disallow this, Orca doesn't start. I do not want ot replace Avant with Orca, I want ot use them side-by-side like I have been doing.

Is this a bug or an I in the right forum?

What do you mean by "replacing"?
Replacing the avant browser's file?or some rule in the firewall?
IE8(Pro), Microsoft Security Essentials

Don't panic, your satanic majesty. I use Kerio too. It just means that the old Orca alpha represents itself as Avant. This is because it contains a lot of Avant bits that haven't been modified yet. Let it go ahead; I have the beta and Avant running happily side-by-side.

Excellent. Thanks for the reply.
