Hi,

 

After signing up I mentioned in the introduce yourself section that I tried to get GlassWire to run, unsuccessfully.  Condobloke replied and suggested I post my isuue here.

 

I am running Vista SP2 on a 64 bit Dell.  I downloaded to a specific folder that I created just for the software.  The erorr is announced in a small error window with    GlassWire 1.0.35 Setup    at the top left and says   GlassWire is not compatible with this Operating System. 

 

It's a relatively new piece of software offerred through BleepingComputer at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/glasswire/  which states  " GlassWire is currently in Beta so bugs may occur and it could cause issues on your computer. When testing GlassWire it worked perfectly on our computer, but as it is in beta we are required to give you this warning. "

 

 

Perhaps my 'puter isn't as perfect as it needs to be ... : ) 

 

Looks like a real good idea for security software.  I'd like to run it.

 

Best Regards,

 

Glenn

Hi gswiatek :)

Glasswire indeed doesn't work on Windows Vista, you need at least Windows 7 to run it. A member of Glasswire team answered someone's question concerning this issue (note that the user is running the same version of Windows as you)

https://forum.glasswire.com/t/latest-glasswire-will-not-install-on-vista-home-premium-sp2-64-bit/643

Unfortunately, you'll have to look for another firewall to use instead of Glasswire. I'll message Grinler to get the description changed on BleepingComputer.

No problem :) Sent a PM to Grinler about it, so it should be corrected soon.
