Hello,

The New Bitdefender can be installed on the Windows 8.1 Preview. However, we can not guarantee the full functionality of the product on a prerelease O.S.

Rest assured that when Windows 8.1 hits the market Bitdefender will be perfectly compatible with it.

Thanks for posting, hope you have a beautiful week ahead!

I can confirm that.

If the Firewall is activated it will block everything.
I also tried to apply an application rule for firefox but this also didn't work.

Same bug for my Total Security 2014 and windows 8.1 x64 pro.

Firewall stops all network connection ... waiting update

Just thought I'd add my experience to this thread. I bought Total Security this evening and after a few problems installing it seems to be working in an odd manner. The Firewall seems to be blocking everything, even Total Security. The only way I can run an update or access the internet in any way is to switch the firewall to off. Seems a bit daft, the firewall is pretty much blocking itself, a fix would be very useful. Thanks

The solution(temp) is to first enable internet connection sharing and then enable firewall.

Seems like a bug really. But I think developers are well aware of it already.

We appreciate you being transparent on this. I would also like to give this a try and see how it goes.

I have a Bitdefender 2013 Total Security license. Is this compatible with the new Bitdefender as well?

Hello Devdutt,

I checked your Bitdefender license key and it is eligible for upgrading to The New Bitdefender Total Security.

Before installing the new software please run this uninstall tool to completely remove all Bitdefender 2013 files and folders:

http://www.bitdefend...nstall_Tool.exe

Save the tool on the PC and run it (on Windows Vista/7/8 right-click on the tool and choose "Run as Administrator"). Click the Uninstall button and restart the computer when prompted, a few minutes later.

We are here for you in case you need our help.

Which version(s) of Bitdefender will run with Windows 8.1 Preview? I am not upgrading my licenses until I can test. I've tried a couple and none seem to work (running 8.1 preview 9431 64bit in i7).

Thanks,

Skip Stein

Hi Skip Stein,

Welcome to the Bitdefender forums.

Only The New Bitdefender and Bitdefender Windows 8 Security will be compatible with the final version of Windows 8.1

We will post an announcement at that time.

I'm not sure, although it's supposed to be a released to manufacturing version. It may work, but we did not receive any announcements until now.

Indeed, Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition is now officially compatible with Windows 8.1 as mentioned in the changelog posted here:

http://forum.bitdefe...o...st&p=196251

However, it may take up to 1 month for the classic line to be fully compatible with Windows 8.1. We will post announcements at that time to inform everyone.
