Hi

I just tried ComboFix on Windows 8.1 in Safe Mode and it wouldn't run.

It says "windows 2000 is no longer supported".

Anybody else had this problem and is there a workaround or fix?

Thanks

ComboFix is not compatible with Windows 8.1 yet so you cannot get it to run. If you attempt to use ComboFix on 8.1, it should provide a message alert: ComboFix is not meant to run in 'Compatibility Mode' and exit. This message is intentional by design when attempting to run ComboFix on Windows 8.1.

sUBs has recently advised that he is holding off releasing any working version of his tools for Windows 8.1 which includes both ComboFix and DDS. Meaning he is fully aware of the compatibility issue but needs time for thorough testing to ensure it works safely on that OS.

Unfortunately, no. sUBs advised yesterday in a private discussion topic that he has not been able to do this yet.

sUBs needs a raise...


“May the sun bring you new energy by day, may the moon softly restore you by night, may the rain wash away your worries, may the breeze blow new strength into your being, may you walk gently thorugh the world and know it's beauty all the days of your life.”

ComboFix does not support Windows 10 at the moment as well as Windows 8.1.
