    On my Windows 8.1 machine I have Spyshelter Firewall v2.8 installed. This morning, I got notification there is a new version. I downloaded the new v2.9 but it gives me error on install saying, "Sorry, your operating system is not supported yet." See the screenshot.

    BTW, in a virtual machine I installed it in Windows 8 without any problems.

    Best regards,

    The download section of there website doesn't show a 8.1 compatibility, just the 8 version.

    So maybe, you have installed the 2.8 version on W8, and after get the 8.1 via Windows Update.

    My Two cents

    Rules.

    Hi Rules,

    You are absolutely correct. After what you posted above, I put the installer in Windows 8 compatibility mode and it installed perfectly, without a hitch.

    Many thanks for pointing that out.

    Best regards,

    Mohamed

    According to SpyShelter's Facebook fanpage, they have released a fix.
    However, there is no update note when checking for updates - guess that's because it is the same version as 8.9.

    Download new version manually and it works perfectly.
