    Does WSA not like Win8.1? I've done the windows update, and have been getting a number of HIPS-like popups.

    As a side issue to the above, after total failure to install 8.1 on two puters, days of searching finally threw up an 8.1 upgrade assistant on the Microsoft pages. I ran this and it stated that WSA is incompatible with 8.1 (which I have on both), so I wonder if this is the reason for failure to upgrade. When I get more time I will try again with WSA uninstalled. Will WSA be made compatible anytime soon?

    It is compatible. Even the latest version of WSA 2013 is compatible.

    Could you let me know what build of WSA you're using? Microsoft shouldn't be saying we're incompatible.

    8.0.4.17 on both computers. Curiously I have just run the upgrade assistant on the desktop and it does NOT now show WSA as incompatible!!

    Update 23/10...ran it again to check and today WSA is flagged as incompatible!!
