    Could there be a issue with this installer on win 8.1? I tried it on win 7 and win 10, both doing fine. A re-run gives the choice of deleting or repair.
    On win 8.1 however it stops with the massage: Windows Packet Filter (64 bit) …ended prematurely. What am i doing wrong?? I tried several machines, also a clean fresh windows install.
    Al are Win 8.1, 6.3(9600).
    Best regards,
    A.

    Thanks for reporting this. Difficult to say before testing but probably it is somehow related to detected Windows version…

    Update: from what I can see installer installs the wrong driver version on Windows 8.1. Instead installing Windows 8 driver it installs Windows 10 driver. This behavior is caused by that fact that both Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 have VersionNT value set to 603 and this requires a sort of workaround:

    Can they be found on the Windows Packet Filter page yet?
