Here's a page with some details;


Last week Zone Labs finally released the long awaited update of ZoneAlarm 
Pro: version 3.0

VisualZone Report Utility is compatible with 3.0. Unfortunately we have 
learned about a problem with the new ZoneAlarm version that can prevent 
VisualZone from operating correctly.
You have to enable the "Archive log text files every .. days" option!
If you disable this option, ZoneAlarm will not write new intrusions to its 
log file and of course VisualZone will no longer be able to add new 
intrusions to the attack list.

We have contacted Zone Labs about this issue and they have confirmed this 
to be a problem in the current version.

Until Zone Labs corrects the problem, please make sure that the archive 
option is enabled.
Open the ZoneAlarm Pro 3.0 window, select "Alerts & Logs" and click on the 
Advanced button:

[It goes on to show you how do make the changes.]
