Network monitor not displaying 4.0.4 update

Postby Hokeypokey27 » Sat Oct 21, 2017 7:48 am

I just updated LS to 4.0.4 (5096) and it's not displayed in the menu bar and I have had no new alerts. When I open the configuration I can see that it has had recent activity of existing rules but when I go to a website I have no alerts for new connections (sites such as eBay constantly alerts you when viewing imbedded content and Facebook for third party ads)

I run the demo version (I know I know) on el cap. I'm planning to do a fresh install of sierra soon and will properly register then, but wanted to report/ask why this is happening and if there is a fix and if it has happened to anyone else

I still had the boot file for 4.0.2 in my downloads folder so just installed that back on and it's all working again (just FYI I had to restore rules manually though so make a backup before backdateing). Will not update till .5 comes out just in case.

Just to clarify, above when I said monitor I meant agent (the main program) not monitor (the feature). Agent was also absent from activity monitor so was obviously not running at all with helper and daemon the only results for LS

I can confirm this issue. Additionally, preference for upgrade branch is grayed out so you cannot uncheck "Show pre-release versions" in 4.0.4 nightly. Downgraded to 4.0.3, restored rules from backup, unchecked pre-release in Updated preferences and all is good. I can also confirm you'll need to take a backup of rules before you downgrade, as the downgrade will wipe your rules.

Ditto regarding the above and I used the same fallback to reuse v4.0.3

OS X 10.11.6 (15G17022)
4.0.4 nightly (5096)

Same here, also with OS X 10.11.6

Will do the downgrade as suggested
