Thread: Installing ZAES 2010 over other EA products

    Default Installing ZAES 2010 over other EA products

    Have a desktop running ZASS 8.0 (MS Vista), two laptops running ZAAV 8.0 (MS Vista) and one laptop running ZA Free (Win XP).

    Thinking of purchasing Zone Alarm Extreme Security 2010. Since it has three licenses, thinking of installing on the Vista machines. No upgrade for the older machine, another free version, plus other free apps for virus/trojans/etc)

    Do the older ZASS versions need to be uninstalled prior to installing the newest ZAES?

    Or, will ZAES install over the older versions and copy their settings now in use?

    Has anyone done this? What was your experience with the ZAES?

    Hi!
    in principle it is possible (haven't tried it).
    What you can do is to backup the settings in the different machines and then proceed. If something goes wrong you can always go back and restore the settings.

    If your versions works well, I would first wait that the ZA 9 is offered via the automatic update, second do a trial before buying it, all ZA comes with a 15 days trial.

    Guess I'll wait till after the 3-day weekend and call.

    My subscriptions all end this month. ZA ver 8 is working flawlessly on all my machines right now. Don't want to screw that up either.

    Thanks for the response.

    Then better to wait a bit, there will be more releases of 9 in the near future and plenty of time to update . Not sure before the end of the month but for sure before the release of window 7 (mid October).
