    Hi I think we should list programs that don't work after upgrading to win 8.1

    I start

    1-Virtual machine failed and to fix it you need to go to configuration file like ubuntu.vmx or windows 8.1.vmx etc.. and change
    vmci0.present = "true" to "false"

    otherwise it will complain of driver issue

    Yesterday I installed connectify on X86, it worked OK, this morning I installed X64 but connectify reported a driver install failure, win8.1 preview doesn't have bb tethering(yet), so went back to X86. :negative:

    Yep, but when using the Metro Button of Classic Shell, the original Windows Button is still behind it.

    I guess that will be fixed with updates to the start menu replacements, they managed to disable it in Windows 8, Im sure they'll manage it again

    I hope StartIsBack gets Win 8.1 support, that's my favourite replacement

    Sounds like they changed the security requirements for things that require 'low level' access.

    I read that Perfectdisk loads, but won't actually defrag, or boot-time defrag doesn't work.
