  1. When I manually download the SASDEFINITIONS.EXE file and run it it comes up with "SuperAntiSpyware caanot be detected. Please re-install SuperAntiSpyware and try again.


    OS: Windows 8 64Bit

    SuperAntiSpyware Free


    Updating within the applications is fine.


    I also have a pc with Windows XP 32Bit and have no problem manually updating with


    the definitions file SASDEFINITIONS.EXE.

  2. No, it's so that servers aren't overloaded and i'm sure also a good way to avoid meltdown at support in case some issue not seen in testing suddenly affects a large part of users. I get the updates last always 1-2 weeks later and so what? I can just download the installer and update in a couple of minutes if it's important to me.

    Obviously something may be up in your case so i would update manually and if this was originally an older installer perhaps even installed as version 4 i would uninstall, reboot and install 5.5.1012 fresh.

    Isn't that exactly what I said but in a different way that there may be a problem with the update and so there is a delay before it is rolled out? But surely there are beta testers . Either way that is a long time to wait for any updates from Version to Version It has been almost a month since the date on the update was created. I ahve had to moanually update. That required a re-boot. Although I was able to copy the files after stopping the SAS Service on another PC. Why the setup file cannot do I don't understand?

  3. Version released has gone from 5.1.1002 to 5.5.1006 and now to 5.5.1012 and still no internal update. This is quite ridiculous. Still stuck at 5.1.1002. Why have an internal update facility if you do use it on a regular basis when new versions are made available. Is it that you don't trust your own updates and so don't roll them out until you are quite sure. In which case your quality control is not very good.

  4. Welcome to the SAS forum.

    Not all application updates require a reboot.

    With that being said, some core/version updates (like any other program) require a reboot. That's just the way it is.

    Emsisoft AntiMalware also runs as a windows service but doesn't require a system re-boot, just an application re-start. I was actually able to force an update on SuperAntiSpyware by using the Unlocker freeware programme to unlock those files that were not able to be updated namely "SASWINLO.DLL". I then copied the files from another system that had already been updated. Everything seems to be fine.
