Thank you Brian, I appreciate that!

@shmu26, thank you, I forgot to mention... there is no need to delete anything. The old database files had .dat extensions, but the new ones have a .db extension. I did this for several different reasons, but one positive side effect is that the .dat files stay in place, in case you want to go back to 3.59 for some odd reason ;).

Also, you can uninstall VS 3.59 first and reboot if you want, but it is probably not necessary.

I also forgot to mention, there might be a couple (2-3) of unexpected windows blocks in the first couple of minutes, but after that, VS should not block anything it is not supposed to. This will be fixed in the next version... but really, it is no biggie.

Also, the VoodooAi score now ranges from 1-100, instead of 0.0000 to 1.0000. I did this for several reasons, but mainly because it makes a lot more sense.

There are tons of other things that I am sure that I am forgetting to tell you guys, but we will figure it out as we go ;).

Nice work Dan. I haven't yet tried the management console.

To upgrade, I exited VS and installed on top of the existing installation. All went well seemingly, though I now have a fresh whitelist (via snapshot) and empty command line list.

Yup lost my two years free. Don't have VS anymore.
Thank you guys!

I transferred all of the accounts from the old server to the new server, so it should be working. If not, please email me at support at voodooshield.com, and let me know the email address of your account, and I will look into it. Thank you!

I figured we would initially have issues with the registration, and I am just going to have to work through them.

I made a change on the server, and the issue is probably fixed.

If anyone is still having problems with registration, please go to VoodooShield Settings / Register, and click the big Reset Registration button at the bottom. This will reset the registration and close VS. You will need to manually start VS (just this once), and you should be able to complete your registration. If not, please let me know. I have received a lot of emails, and I am going to copy and paste a link to this post in my reply.

Also, if VS is not starting on Windows startup, it is probably because the old service was set to (Automatic) Delayed Start. In this case, you can either manually change the VoodooShieldService Startup Type to Automatic, or you can just uninstall VS 4.0, reboot the computer, and reinstall it.

Besides these two issues, we are in pretty good shape... much better than I expected considering all of the changes that were made. There are a few bugs in the error reporting system, but they are easy fixes. Thank you guys!

same man that helped me solve the troubles with my account there (I was unable to post).

I signed up at MWT and WS on the same day and the same thing happened to me - unable to post. Tried twice, even posted on the forum asking for help and received none. I gave up & I've been at MWT which is far friendlier and helpful. Kudos to this forum.

And last but not the least, a big welcome to Dan. I will be purchasing a subscription for my home PCs.

Nope. Did clean install. Service set at Automatic. Does not start.

Event viewer reports...
Service cannot be started. System.Exception: StartProcessAsCurrentUser: GetSessionUserToken failed.

Issue for me with the registration, first time it went fine and returned my accurate expiration date, after a restart of the PC however
it needed re-registering and then threw this error:
VS_SS.png

Reinstalled, made sure the FW was not blocking, ect ect. Nothing worked and the way you re-worked this it is useless to have
installed if it cant register, so for the first time in years I am without VS.
Will try again in a few months. PeAcE
PS: the correct email address is not displayed in the SS, but the one I entered was correct. I don't display my real Email acct's anymore in Screen Shots, I used to.
