    Default Anti-Beacon 2.1 "cannot install files to 64bit locations on this version of Windows"

    I guess this failure to install is connected with this inherited PC I have which is a 64 bit AMD CPU but it's running Windows 10 32bit? Screenshot (49).jpg

    Default SpyBot AntiBeacon 2.1!

    This is a puzzle.

    It says version 2.1 but when I installed in on my Win 8.1 Toshiba I found that it is really a new program = it saved the files in Program Files\Safer-Networking Ltd\SpyBot AntiBeacon\ and left all the old programs in Program Files (x86)\SpyBot AntiBeacon\. So now I have to uninstall the old version. The version of the new file is 3.0.1.72!

    Then I looked in the taskschd.msc and I found that the action had been changed to a program that didn't exist C:\Program Files\SpyBot AntiBeacon\SDAntiBeacon.exe

    So my last question is - has the option to run on startup been moved somewhere else or will it never run?

    Blessings

    Found another issue with 2.1

    When you uninstall the process is not stopped... and several files are left in place.
    SpyBot3AntiBeacon64.exe and the x64 dll files

    The workaround is to install it on an another Windows installation (eg. my 64bit Window 7 laptop) and copy the resulting "Safer Networking Ltd" folder from Program Files to the Windows 10 equivalent. And it works.

    Doesn't set it to run on Start Up mind you, but that's easily solved.
