  1. I have a new laptop and last night a web site said I needed Flash, so started to download it and OA displayed the message as shown earlier in this thread. My OA appears to be up to date. Does this mean this is still a OA problem, or is this something different. This thread and problem seems to date from February???
  2. Yes It was a brand new laptop, first thing I was trying to do, before adding any software including Windows updates, was to install OA. I did not think OA would need Win 7 SP1. I have now downloaded Windows updates, rebooted, ans re-tried OA. It now works. Would have been nice if the error message had been a little more explanatory...
  3. Some further info, it has actually installed, when I try to run it, and select 30 day trial, I receive the above message. I have tried on and off for over 5 hours now.
  4. I have a computer running OA and I now have a second (new) computer, so I downloaded OA for it. When I try to install it says "Invalid server response. Please try again in a few minutes or contact the support" (sic). I have tried this several times, over an hour or more.
  5. Yes, just an example. If a program is recompiled it appears to be regarded as a new program in Programs but seems to be left in Firewall. I would have thought the logic for one would apply to the other. The "trusted" I think was really meant to say "a program OA knows about" as in a record of past activity exists.
  6. I take a program here as an example. Remove all entries for it in OA under Programs and under Firewall. Recompile program. Try to run program, receive a message a program wants to run - good. It tries to access internet, allow it - good. Recompile it. Try to run program, receive a message a trusted program wants to run (sic) - sort of ok, it has changed but was never trusted. It tries to access internet, no warning. There seems to be a lack of consistency.
  7. Does the Firewall info get cleared under this sceanrio? (It doesn't seem to be here.)
  8. If OA informs me a program I have "trusted" (not really, but that is another story...) has changed (and I agree OA needs to check this, for HIPS to be effective), and I tell OA yep, it is the same program, it has been updated or whetever, then why should I have to go through and set all the OA configuration up yet again. I know it is not really the same exe, it has been replaced, etc, etc, but as far as I am concerned it is just an upgrade to a program that OA knows about and a program I have configured in OA previously.
  9. My understanding when I read the help was that if you chose a "non-standard" mask the option was not used. However, the option is still shown as on (if it was before the mask was changed), but the check box is disabled. That implies to me the option to use sub-dirs is on but is not allowed to be changed. Help indicates the option is off...
  10. Oh, and why does changing the wildcard from * to *.* disable the "Include sub-dirs" check box?
  11. Yeah, I never thought an "Option" tab would switch a whole feature on/off, I thought options would contain ... well options on how it ran, I had thought ticking read, write, etc would do that... but I should have checked that tab. Seems to be working, but a few things didn't look right, will check more.
  12. Yep, assumed that. I had Delphi running, so I used it to change a file (under that directory) and save it, no prompt, then recompiled the project, no prompt, then exited Delphi, no prompt. Not sure, but I would have thought they would be prompts on all of those, am I misunderstanding how this works? Do I have to set something up under Programs on that tab?
  13. I could not get the Files and Registry to do much. I tried a rule of: Mask: D:\My Development\* Rule type: ticked all All programs set to ask Never seemed to get a popup Not sure how this fits with allowing programs to say create exes, which takes precedence?
  14. If it is just a different version of the same program, and you acknowledge that to OA, I do not agree it should then forget all the settings you have made for that program, forcing you to start from scratch. This is 100% here, if I have a program that is not trusted and it is recompiled, every time I get a message from OA saying a trusted program has changed.Interesting thing the other day... I decided to clean up OA's Programs list, there were entries, sometimes a dozen or more, for different versions of same programs... so started deleting, started from the top of the list ("A"s), got down to the "C"s... and suddenly OA warns me that my email program (which starts with "G") wanted to run, wanted to use the internet, was a keylogger..... (and it had been running all day before that...)
  15. Have not tested, but I assume global hooks is just an example, I would expect other settings to have the same problem.
  16. Interesting... if you have a program shown as unknown, and you have it all set up the way you want, allow global hooks, yes it is a keylogger, allow it to start exe's, etc... then you click Trust... then untrust.. all is forgotten it seems.
  17. It is unknown (don't know why, it was trusted and I clicked untrust? - I was just trying to reproduce this problem). I do not think this has an effect. Yes Yes, the display is not updated after Allow, and the incorrect value is saved when Ok is clicked Advanced
  18. Suppose we have a program (untrusted) that sets global hooks. OA is set to ask for that. Open OA GUI, double click the program and it will show Ask. Run the program, and click allow. Close the OA GUI using OK. The program's global hooks will be changed back to Ask. Using OA++n5.0.0.1100, Windows 7. (Yes I know, if I trust the program the problem will go away).
  19. Something strange, found one entry, program was trusted (generally never trust programs here) and hide trusted was on.
  20. That is how it used to work here, not any more, I have one entry. Nope, I have one entry only, the directory is not correct, nothing is greyed.
  21. OK, that's strange (I assume you tried this on your system) because I don't. I deleted entries for the program in OA's "Programs". I then recompiled the program in Directory A, ran it and ok'ed OA's prompts. I then copied the file to Directory B, and ran it from there - I received a "trusted program has changed" message (???) but nothing else. Checking OA's "Programs" shows one entry, for Directory A - and that info remains even if Directory A is removed (???).
  22. So what should happen if an exe is copied to another path?
  23. Generally directories for programs being developed are excluded (Mike put that in for me a few years ago). But one program had a few "quick" changes made, and it was not set up as excluded.
