Windows 8.1

By: HassonGrove , 5:08 AM GMT on October 31, 2013

Has anyone upgraded to Windows 8.1 yet and use VWS? I was using Ambient Weather with Windows 8 and it worked fine but when I upgraded to 8.1 I keep getting errors saying that C:\vws\wininet.dll is not designed to run on Windows or contains errors.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled and get the same message.

Hello HassonGrove, I'm Dave from San Jose, CA. You would want to contact your computer's manufacture for info to install windows 8. You would also need an updated software from the computer manufacture before windows 8 will work. It has to do with the registry. The registry in your computer needs to be edited so the registry will accept windows 8 and the error message will no longer appear.
