Premium Trial trashed my Reason installation


Recommended Posts

Win7x64

 

When updating from Propellerheads Reason 10.1.1 to 10.1.2, I got the error message in 

the attached picture. I first tried Retry, and then Ignore. This totally trashed my installation, 

as neither the new or previous installation worked after this. I wasted 2 hours getting it fixed. 

 

No notification from Malwarebytes, nothing in the log/chest. 

 

I had to contact Propellerheads to get access to the old Reason installation so I could

reproduce the Error  by updating. Got the same message again and used "Retry"-button 

after killing Malwarebytes, and the installation went through without problems. 

 

Cheers :)

Greetings,

It sounds like this is being caused by a known issue with the Web Protection component in Malwarebytes 3 which under certain conditions will block applications that it should not from being able to communicate with the internet.  Currently the only workaround is to either disable Web Protection temporarily when updating affected applications or keeping Web Protection turned off.

In order to supplement your protection should you need to disable Web Protection on a regular basis or to keep it disabled until this issue is fixed in an upcoming Malwarebytes release, you may install the new Malwarebytes browser plugin BETA which is available for Chrome and other Chromium based browsers as well as Mozilla Firefox.  Info and download links for each may be found at the following links:

Chrome
Firefox

The plugin will shield your browser from many web based threats, but rather than using large databases of known malicious sites and servers the way that Web Protection in Malwarebytes 3 does, the plugins instead rely more on signature-less behavioral detection of malicious content including tech support scam lockscreen sites, phishing sites, malicious and PUP plugin sites, many ad servers and trackers to help guard your privacy when surfing the web.  Even with Web Protection in Malwarebytes 3 active, the plugins are still very useful because they work differently and can block different things, and they actually work in tandem with Web Protection to help speed up browsing performance by redirecting blocked pages by Web Protection more quickly, resulting in pages and content on the web loading more quickly when those blocks occur.

Hopefully the issue with Web Protection will be fixed soon, but until it is these plugins should help provide some protection if using a compatible web browser.

This wasted even more of my time. The tool looks nothing like that, and asks me for

email and a ticket number. I do not have a ticket number, so the tool will not allow me

to run it. :p 

 

I`ll leave it with that...

Thanks. I just disabled it all together. I did not want to run the trial anyway.

No problem.  You're still free to use the browser plugin if you wish.  I can attest to its effectiveness, having seen it block tons of tech support scam sites etc. while browsing, and since it is a browser extension, it doesn't need to run any additional processes or services in the background.
