How to make outpost firewall (free) work in W7 !

hi !

how to do it:
run the *INSTALLATION* in compatibility-mode for Vista SP1.

im running it now, looks OK so far, no errormessages yet...

ive tested it with Gibsons "Security test", and "Leaktest", and it passed.

hi !

ive tested it with Gibsons "Security test", and "Leaktest", and it passed.

https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2

i have been running tests for the last couple of hours, i have tested it with Comodos "Leaktests", and after making some small adjustments its now almost "waterproof".

http://download.comodo.com/securitytests/All_tests.zip

now i have 2 leak-problems left to fix.

i also tested Comodos own (free) firewall with their "Leaktest-package", and it had more leaks, (4 or 5) cantt remember now,
im tired...

it got 300 (290 ?) out of 340 points.

Outpost got 320 points, so it seems to be doing a good job.

Hmmm - I have a license for Outpost Paid version as an admin from another forum - I might try it out on Win 7 in a Virtual Machine....

Thanks for the info.

Does Outpost Firewall Free really work? I downloaded, and it wouldn't even so much as launch the installer.

Just tried your instructions on RC 7127 but using the Pro version didn't work for me.
