Glasswire and Vista

I tried to download Glasswire on two computers. One a laptop the other a desktop both failed. I went to Glasswire to research, but found nothing explaining the problem. I turned all antivirus off before downloading. Can anyone help?

Re: Glasswire and Vista

Glasswire only works on Win7, Win8, and Win10...  Surprised anyone has a vista machine still as Vista machines, if I remember right, had a free Win7 upgrade for a very limited time.  Apparently the Glasswire program works and interfaces with the Windows Firewall, and it seems Microsoft made some changes with Win7 and up that Glasswire needs, that Vista and lower will never have.

Charles,

Thank you. You are right I have the upgrade for Win7. I installed it on my computer on 10/7/09. It did not work I was told that it was only a patch not the full OS. I had to spend $200 to have vista reinstalled. I'm to tech savvy enough to chance it again.

Re: Glasswire and Vista

Good morning Reggie,

Thanks for posting. I'm glad Charles was able to explain that GlassWire and Vista aren't compatible. I wasn't aware, but this is good to know. Thanks, Charles!
