I have a brand new install of win 2k. I loaded ZASS 7.0.462 and I it won't update the AV definitions. The anti-spyware updates fine, but not the anti-virus.
I tried deleting the LocalCatalog.xml file, but it says the file is in use, even if I uncheck "start ZA when Windows starts" and reboot. It's a brand new install of both Win 2k and ZASS, so this doesn't seem like a likely fix.
I deleted the whole partition and started over. Five hours later I was back at the same place.
I deleted the whole partition again, and re-installed 2k and 7.0.337 and I got the same thing. Anti-spyware -- fine, anti-virus -- no updates.
I tried dozens of combinations in the AV/AS window, automatic 'on', automatic 'off', etc. No luck.
Checking the ZASS program version works fine, and anti-spyware update works fine, but it won't do AV updates.
I bought a 3-PC license, my other PCs can update fine on 462. One is 2k, and the other is XP.
I tried it first without putting in my license key and again with the key. No luck.
I tried with ZASS starting automatically with Windows and by starting it manually. No luck.
I remember this being a problem a couple of years ago, but it went away.
