    Where did you download the beta version? Did you download it from Grisoft's beta site?

    Hello Badcompany

    What is the name of the file that you have downloaded? Is it "ewido-setup.exe" of size 1,600,272 bytes? It is the beta file 4.0.0.151. Do you get this one? As of today, the beta file is still at 4.0.0.151. I cannot post the direct link here, because it may be against the beta DNA.

    The desciption #150 and file size 1,562,77 is incorrect. It is the webmaster's mistake who failed to update the site with the correct info.

    If you click the link to download the file, it should be 1,600,272 bytes!!!

    After you have downloaded the file, right-click on the file and choose properties. It should have a size 1,600,272 bytes!!!

    The size is correct

    1562,77 kB x 1024 = 1600276 bytes

    The free version is the full version so what does it matter? Just download it, update it. Go to the main screen and click enter license code and walaaa you have Ewido 4.0 full version..

    Thanks for pointing out. :p

    There should be only one version in the Grisoft beta site, and that is the beta version 4.0.0.151. If you do not have a license code, the beta will function for only 30 days, after which real time protection and automatic update will be disabled. I am not sure what happens after 30 days, since I have entered my license key for the beta 4.0, but it will probably become the 4.0 beta free version with no real time protection and automatic updates.

    If you download the 3.5 version, it will also become the free version with no real time protection after the trial period.

    Hi Chubb,
    I have just found out my problem, I downloaded Beta 4 on Friday but it would not update so i uninstalled and reinstalled, that was my problem.Ewido Beta 4 will only let you download the full program once,if you download it again you only receive the free version.Thank you all for your help, and info.

    Do you mean you get version 3.5 from the Grisoft beta site when you want to download 4.0 beta again from the Grisoft beta site? Actually, when you download the file (3.5 or 4.0 beta), it is the full version. It will only become the free version after the trial period.

    No, you get the full version of 4 from Grisoft the first time you download it, but after that you only get version 4 free, as if the trial period had finished.So you are only permitted one download of the full program.I had the full progam for only 1hr, every time i download beta 4 now, i get only the free version of beta 4

    There is no difference between the "full version" and "free version"; there is only one version. The beta version acts like the "full version", with the guard active. The only difference is if you enter the license code the Status page will show

    Version: 4.0.0.151 plus
    Permium Support: Yes
    Premium Updates: Yes

    Sorry for the incorrect "information" I posted; I though the guard would be active for all beta testers.

    But either way, there is only one installer. Once the license code is entered, the version information will change. (You can use the license code from 3.5 if you have it.)
