    On one of my PC's I've got Comodo FW 2.4 but when I press the update button in Comodo it does not make an attempt to update to Version 3.0, why is this.

    Dear Tomaso, the reason that the auto-update doesn't work, is that version 3 code is considerably different from version 2. As a matter of fact, it has happened that the auto-update couldn't update even between 3.x versions. So, as Twl845 said, you need to do a clean install.

    Yes, 2.4 isn't related to 3.0 so you do need to do a clean install, as 3.0 is not for Vista, they wouldn't know if you're using XP or vista

    Well 3.0 is for Vista because I've installed it and it runs ok.

    Because it's a separate firewall, still with its own download area, and a valid option for those (like me) who don't want to be bothered with the D+ stuff.
