    Go into the program properties and find compatibility mode and select Windows 7 if it worked there without problems. Sometimes that helps.

    You may very well need to re-install them. Windows 8.1 seems to have different permission schemes for the filesystem. I had to modify some of the programs I wrote to accomidate thrown exceptions for this. I also ended up haveing to re-install or update most of my programs, including my C++ compiler.

    Once you get through that, it should be fine.

    run this command through command prompt:

    Code:
    ipconfig /flushdns && ipconfig /release && ipconfig /renew
    and tell me what it says. (rght click on the command prompt, the click mark, select the text, press enter, then paste it here)
