    Default Installation size

    hi,

    I downloaded again the newer version of ZAes 10.0.250 just to try and see if any bugs are removed.

    Just a small query regarding size is that the setup itself is around 250MB, the installation folder is of around 110MB and the size at un installation menu of "Add and remove" shows size as 65-70MB..

    So is it fine or am i not installing it properly.


    Thanks.

    Welcome to the Zone Alarm User Forum..

    This Forum exist to allow Volunteer experienced Zone Alarm Users to help the Few Users who encounter a problem with ZoneAlarm and need to be guided in the right direction..

    It is Sometimes very Difficult to Diagnose and fix a Computer from halfway across the Country, or around the World,
    without All the Details about your computer and Software that you failed to provide, without our ability to sit in front of your Computer monitor and see what's going on..

    1.) did you receive a Update Alert notice like the one below?



    If so then you may have received a smaller Web-Installer that interigates your computer and Only downloads the needed ZA Update parts..

    2.) however, if you just logged onto the ZoneAlarm web-site and downloaded from the Download page or from the ReleaseHistory page then you downloaded the FULL 244MB installer..

    Just follow the On screen install instruction and you should be Ok..

    I think i was not clear

    I have no issues what so ever in installation. I have a Win 764bit OS as host and multiple Linux/winOS in my VMware.

    so i downloaded the version from release history for size about 244MBand installed the same in a fresh windows XP machine on my vmware.

    (Using vmware to test if what i posted earlier if bugs are removed like the one i told you before even after blocking so many access attempts and my log file full of blocked access at the main Computer protected page it still says 0 access blocked.)



    So the setup is of 244MB the installation folder in c:\progra~1\checkpoint is of 110MB and that in add and remove programs it showed the size while i was removing it 65MB.


    Thats why i asked why this size differnt issue.

    Here is the Reason for the Difference in Size..

    (MultiPlatform, installer will install on Both WinXP SP3 and Vista 32bit & 64-bit and Windows7 32-bit & 64-bit)

    The Full 244MB file contains all needed files for all of those different Versions of Windows, so in effect, many of the files will not be installed in every Computer..
