just a tad confused

Installation over an older version has always been supported. However, in the case of beta versions it's better to install it from scratch as it may use dedicated beta update servers which wouldn't be set if you installed it over a previous version.

I somehow downloaded  EAV_nt64_enu.msi instead of ess_nt64_enu.msi.

on the ESET Beta 7 site. 

No Matter it is now fixed.

I guess I will never understand why Nod32 exists when there is ESS SS.

The short answer is that some people feel that they don't want/need the antispam, and/or use another 3'rd party firewall. :)

Better? I haven't found the firewall in ESS to be bad, the opposite actually. :)  

 

The way I use it is that I make sure all programs I want to be able to connect have rules created for them, then put the firewall in policy based-mode, that way it won't bother you and it doesn't allow any connections in/out unless there is a rule for it. 

 

So what's not good about it do you think?

It's not bad, I didn't say that but there are much better alternatives. Free and paid. I'm pretty sure you already know that.

I'm not going to derail this thread now.

No we can stop now, all I know is that it is perfectly fine for my needs, and that it does it's job well. I just thought that maybe you wanted to let ESET know what you didn't like to let them improve it. 

 

But if you use a 3'rd party FW that you like wich plays well with ESET, Bullguard, or WSA then there's no need to change :)

I, too, wonder what is missing in the ESS firewall that competition has :)

I tried some other firewalls.

 

What's really missing from the ESS firewall and the ones I tried was a lot of headaches and loud yells of words I can't type here.

If you want a headache install Norton or Mcafee... lol

I heard Jetico has a decent firewall !

Does anyone ever remember Conceal by Signal9 Solutions?

I used that way way back in the day, but i think its gone now.

Will see what i find about that company for some light reading.... :)
