So the above fix is stating that a component of AdAware, which monitors web traffic blocks the program (causing grief) because it appears to mimic a datamining piece of malware, needs to be disabled.
The first question to be asked, is what exactly is Eagle doing which needs to be calling home in this manner?
Suppose it's AdAware being hypersensitive. Am I going to have this problem when my IT guys have the firewall settings clamping down something brutal, and I'm powerless to change that?
Never been a problem with EagleV7 and earlier.
To be specific, the encounter with EAGLE causes Lavasoft to run into a divide by zero error
. If you look through the Lavasoft forums you'll find that users have experienced this issue with other software.
As has already been mentioned, EAGLE on startup checks for a valid license from the Autodesk servers so it is at that point that it calls home.
Now, for the most important question. If the IT guys go hardcore on the firewall settings, then it's likely that a proxy server is available to you(Considering Microsoft and Adobe have gone subscription as well it's likely that EAGLE isn't your IT team's first rodeo) EAGLE can use that validate your license. Additionally the ports used by EAGLE to check the license are standard HTTPS ports that most department have available.
If neither of those two options work than e-mail [email protected]
and we could address it further.
Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.
