Re: Problem with updating 11.0.504 to 11.768; also current DAT file version
I was wrong. .NET 3.5 is required to be installed. The new Site Check feature requires it. This is new in version 11.0768.000
So when its not detected we will attempt to download and install it.
In your case since the .NET installer we download from Microsoft is crashing when it runs (not a ZoneAlarm crash ) I would suggest you run the windows update utility and just update EVERYTHING. Don't leave anything out there is no reason to do that at all. Install all critical , non-critical and all other updates of ANY type.
Yes installing all versions of .net and all the patches for .net can take a Long Long time, but to avoid issues in the futures it better to bit the bullet now.
After you done that then install ZA again. ZA will not need to download and install .Net again.
Re: [WORKAROUND] Error updating 11.0.504 to 11.768 --> MS .NET Framework Required
Thank you for all your contributions, the origin of the problem has been identified (MS .NET Framework required).
Taking into consideration that the OP will move to other solutions not requiring MS .NET Framework and that all relevant information has been given I will be revising the title of the thread to hint to the workaround and closing it.
I wish the user good luck for his/her new software solution choosen. There is indeed plenty of free software out there depending on users needs and wishes. That's the beauty of free software! ;)
