    Hi, this is my first post here :cool:

    I downloaded and installed the trial version of NOD32 and it says it's 2.7.16.

    Recently browsing this forum I read some people talking about a .23 release... is that final or beta? No matter I push 'Update' button NOD updates the definitions file but not the core app.

    Any help welcomed!!

    By the way, I was using avast! Pro, which I like very much and Avira seems very powerfull too but NOD's scanning speed is incredible super fast! Thanx to the assembler gurus at ESET :thumb:

    Best,
    Martin

    Hello,

    1) a trial version of NOD32 does not download program component updates.
    2) version 2.70.16 is virtually the same as any newer version that have a minor bug in the updater fixed.

    But, is .23 the latest stable build or is it beta? Where can I find it? And, which bugs fixes? Do you have any url to check that?

    It is the latest stable build not a beta.

    when you have paid, and get a username/password, you can get the full version - .16 is the highest trial - .23 is a full version release.

    Higher versions will not fix anything for eval users nor will add any new features.

    I think you're missing the point. The trial is the trial - you're running it for 30 days max (unless you mess with it) - and then you're onto the paid version. As a paying subsciber (when you get there), you want Eset's efforts focused on you and the other paying subscribers. The functionality difference between the trial and the full version is not LARGE... and those SMALL changes are not going to affect your purchasing decision (most likely).

    Don't get hung up on it - trial and buy, or move on... your call!

    I think vendors should allways post their latest stable builds for their own good because the trial is in fact the best showcase they can find.

    Besides that, as a sales professional as I am, trial users deserves the same attention than customers because, you ~snip~ , the trial user of today may very well be the happy customer of tomorrow. But if you don't like work this way, well, please target your services to big enterprises and you haven't to care at all of the trial users. :rolleyes:

    NOD32 is very good, yes it is, but I found avast! is pretty cool too and Avira has surprise me very well with it's excellent suite; and I'm not mentioning here that Symantec seems to had learned about their unhappy customers and the latest release of NAV and NIS are way lot more memmory and resources friendly while keeping it excellent protection.

    So, as you see [(trial and buy, or move on... your call!)] world isn't often white or black only, ~snip~. :blink:

    For now on, I will try Avira deeply and in case returning to NOD32 a few registry tweaks may well give me an extended evaluation period of some thousand days :shifty:
