Ez Builder Broke From Win 8 To Win 8.1 Update On Surface

Had Ez Builder 7-29 working and communicating with the EZ B until I upgraded from Win 8 to Win 8.1.

Uninstalling and reinstalling Ez Builder didn't work.

Here's a video of the symptoms:

Any suggestions? I'm trying to downgrade back to win 8 now but it's a pain...




Upgrade to ARC Pro

Your robot can be more than a simple automated machine with the power of ARC Pro!

ARC is not broken. Windows 8.1 is broken. The Internet is full of issues with 8.1.

Restore to previous working version of windows.
I was able to downgrade back to 8.0 and ARC is working again.

I wasn't thinking there was a problem with ARC. Yet if enough folks move in that direction of upgrading the Surface to win 8.1 I wanted to supply warnings and enough information for Ez-Robot to make a patch.

Thanks aameralis for the Asus tablet idea. That would have been best.
Good call. Is 8.1 released yet? I thought it was still a release candidate (RT) or Beta.
You're right, 8.1 was what they called a preview release.
