VueMinder Free V11 on Win 8.1

Post by Tochan1983 » Wed Jul 22, 2015 2:04 pm

Have installed the free VueMinder Lite 11 in Win 8.1. The install seems to have proceeded without problems. The Control Panel/Programs shows VueMinder Lite installed. When I launch VueMinder Lite I get a little window that shows "For non-Commercial Use" an alarm clock and the words VueMinder Lite and V11.2.9. Then the program hangs at this point. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling several times but with the same results. If I do nothing, after 5-10 minutes I get a Windows alert that the program has stopped working. VueMinder also shows up in Task Manager utilizing CPU and memory resources.

VueMinder is fully compatible with Windows 8.1. In fact, that's where most of the development and testing occurs.

It sounds like in your case there's a problem with the installation. To fix the problem, use the Control Panel to uninstall VueMinder (this won’t remove any data). Reboot after uninstalling. Next, download and reinstall using the link below:

Please let me know if that doesn't fix the problem.

Followed suggestion above 1) uninstall VueMinder from control panel/programs 2) re-boot PC 3) install from http://www.vueminder.com/Download.aspx. Did not help. Got same results, would not lunch VueMinder Lite. Tried launching in WIN 8 compatibility mode as well as WIN 7. Even tried Run as Administrator. Didn't help.

From http://www.vueminder.com/Download.aspx I clicked on Lite Download. That took me to http://download.cnet.com/VueMinder-Lite ... 60&subj=dl to do the actual download.
