AVG GetNativeSystemInfo Application Error

Posted on 2008-11-09
Last Modified: 2013-12-05
Just this week I've started receiving the following entries from AVG7.5 Upgrader.Utils whenever I boot AVG Control Center (AVGCC).  My research has turned up little except that the Upgrader.util is calling "GetNativeSystemInfo", and that particular X64 function is not supported by Windows 2000 (I have Windows 2000 Server SP4).

It looks as if there has been an update to the basic AVG7 program & that it is checking the System Information in a new way.  Is there anyway around this?  I'm pretty much a novice, but I managed to beat down a lot of system configuration errors using this forum.  Figured I'd run this by everybody...

    GetNativeSystemInfo function not found - occuring after the recent Priority updates.  We are slowly having systems report in about this AVG7 Alert.

    I have to obtain support from ZenithInfoTech.  This does not work out well when attempting to get support from them.  It is like pulling teeth.

    What starts this alert is a flag to restart after updates.  Once you restart you get the Alert listed in the original post.

    I have not found a solution to this issue yet and have not been able to get support from ZenithInfoTech.  They bundle it in other packages we purchase from them so they must support us for these issues.

    Thanks for the comment, Roy.  I'm beginning to think that it's a left-handed way for AVG to push us to upgrade to AVG8.  I doubt that upgrading will solve my problem with a Win2k box however.

    I'm going to accept your answer because it seems related to the software update.  You confirmed my suspicions.  I'll keep watching for further postings about this problem.  Thanks again!  Scott.
