    Hey Bob D,

    Could you please supply a download link for the new VBA32 release? The VBA website still points to the older version.

    Alternate link is: ftp://anti-virus.by/pub/ ,although latest release may not be there.
    Earlier release, once installed, should (?) update to latest build.
    If not (as may be the case with demo versions) contact support & request temp. key file for evaluation purposes.
    Support: support-en AT anti-virus.by
    Sales: sales-en AT anti-virus.by
    I've found them to be fairly responsive in the past.

    I follow them on Twitter and there is barely any news in Belorussian so there is no surprise that the English site is so far behind. I think after the vba32.de guys shutdown and Sergey Ulasen went to Kaspersky it's all been downhill. Sad to see, but that is the way it works I guess.
