I upgraded from Windows 8 to 8.1 yesterday. It appears iSecunia PSI is not compatible with Windows 8.1. Is anyone having a problem getting it to work? I have tried installing previous version of PSI with no success. PSI worked fine with Windows 8 for me. Nothing I try seems to restore it to a working app. Any suggestions will be appreciated - thanks.

I see exactly the same thing. PSI 3 crashes every time you launch it.

I used this link to uninstall 3.0 and put 2.0 back on .

2.0 works fine but does resolve windows 8.1 issue.

Thanks, will try 2.0 - appreciate the suggestion. UPDATE - Installed 2.0 and it's running fine on Windows 8.1 x64 - strange! I thank you again.

It appears the 3.0.0.8013 does not work with 8.1. My wife has same PC and running version 3.0.0.6001. Is there a way to run an older version of PSI 3.0? Thanks

Try version 3.0.0.7011 to see if that helps. A link is here:

http://www.download3k.com/Install-Secunia-Personal...

Version 3.0.0.8013 (which only adds the Arabic language) is causing trouble with Windows 7 as well so I believe something is amiss with the update.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for all the replies. I have now installed Version 3.0.0.7011 and it is running fine, no problems so far. I have Windows 8.1 x64 OS installed. I appreciate all the help I received in here.
