The Updates from ClamWin are not working. They are not starting.
If I am clicking Tools -> Download Virus Database Update than is shown:
ClamAV update process started at (Date).

And than there is NOTHING DOING !!! It is only grey.
(Until I push "STOP"-Button. Than "---- Cancelled ----".) NO ERROR MESSAGE.

I have ClamWin 0.94 now updated to 0.94.1. The problem is still the same.

I don't know, why I didn't works. Sometime it had worked.
O/S is: Windows 98 SE (with the newest Patches, Upgrades).

I'm having a DSL-Connection 6MB/s.
My English is not so good, but I don't find any German Language Forum.

OK, I fixed the problem.

I DOWNgraded from 0.94.1 to 0.94.
After Deinstallation of 0.94.1 and new installation of version 0.94 it works fine.

The Upgrade 0.94 -> 0.94.1 itselfs works, but than I can no more download the virus definition updates. With version 0.94 is no problem.
Perhaps these bug is only under Windows 98/ SE. Please check it out.
It could also be a problem with my Router/ Firewall.

Also with version 0.94 I get these messages (from the lock-file):

But it isn't any problem. It works fine !!!

So I think, the version 0.94 works great. I still will use this version and not update now.

It would be usefull to have a forum for German and Dutch Language user, because not all understand so much English. Excuse my bad English.

Best regards.
