Avira has improved, as perceived by AADS, compared to the previous version of Avira: out-of-the-box Avira 2018 runs OK on an AADServer, without the need to change any settings within Avira.
In case Optimize is being used on Windows 10, and the default Windows 10 Tile Menu is disabled, the Administrator can add "Avira Control Center" to the AADS-StartMenu, such to be able to configure Avira:
The Avira installation is almost default, except for the option "Protect files and registry entries from manipulation":
This option needs to be un-checked.
If this option is not un-checked, then AADServer can not be installed properly, and can not be used properly, because Avira prohibits AADSetup for applying required registry settings:
AADSetup attempts to apply Registry Settings which are required for making Windows multi-user, multi-login, multi-desktop, multi-session. These AADS registry settings are apparently not "expected" by Avira.
When the option "Protect files and registry entries from manipulation" is not un-checked, Avira will revert Windows back to single-user, single-login, single-desktop, single-session. Also Avira might remove AADS executables, with the net-result that your AADServer is not working properly.
