    Pest Patrol Updater

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by Phil Rabichow on 05-Jan-03 12:56. to add last paragraph)</P>2 questions, please, for those who've used Pest Patrol. I have the evaluation version of Pest Patrol & Zone Alarm.

    1. I checked & the latest version of their PestInfo.dat & PestPatrol.dat is 9/12/02. Does anyone know if that's the latest time that they updated their files?

    2. I used to be able to update by clicking the Pest Patrol Updater shortcut. Now I get a message "Zone Alarm found but not running" (Whether It is running or not.) & nothing happens. If I actually load PestPatrol & then click the updater shortcut, I get the same message, but it goes ahead & "downloads" the updates. Actually, since September, it says I have the latest of everything. Zone Alarm is configured to allow Pest Patrol. Anyone know how I can get the updater to work as it used to?

    OK--I just discovered something. The updater will work if I'm already connected to the internet, but not otherwise. It used to call up the connection. Any ideas?

    Thank you,

    Phil,

    I just downloaded PestPatrol Eval earlier today and installed it.

    I'm running XPP with ZA with a DSL connection.

    I just ran the updater with no problems.

    I'm going to attach a screenshot of the file versions and dates for you to compare with, seeing as I can't see those two particular file names.
