Re: No update from internet on Windows 8.1

I have come to the conclusion that the only way to get YoWindow (and all those other programmes that I have mentioned) working again is to downgrade to Windows 7 (where they all worked beautifully) and it is just possible I may have that opportunity. In the middle of December my laptop screen went w...

Re: No update from internet on Windows 8.1

Nope, I think it is down to nothing more than the fact that something has happened with Windows 8.1 that means unless the website that hosts the information can run via IE10, Windows 8.1 wants nothing to do with it whatsoever (in other words, it's another Windows 8 bug that will probably not get res...

Re: No update from internet on Windows 8.1

Sorry, even allowing YoWindow direct access via the list of programmes that can directly access the internet doesn't allow it to update. As I mentioned in my orginal post it's the latest in a long line of programme that do not seem to like connecting to the internet via anything lower than IE10.

Re: No update from internet on Windows 8.1

So clearly therefore (as that version is also not updating) there must be a problem with my computer not being able to get internet updates from any programme that accesses the Internet using anything lower than IE10 on Windows 8.1 (which is one of the reasons I detest Windows 8 which I got bumped t...

Re: Licence Key Transfer Question

I didn't pay for it, I was given it free of charge for taking part in a Facebook promotion. I have been through Googlemail and cannot find anything there and there is nothing on the old computer to suggest what the licence key is in the first place.
