    compatibility application "runtime error 217 at line 304BE

    Windows 8.1 64 bits, 3 users in PC

    I have download Spybot search & destroy v 2.2.25 (free version) but my windows compatibility application says it is not compatible, "runtime error 217 at line 304BED64"

    I tried the compatibility again with settings for windows, 8, but same error.

    Note: I only ran the compatibility tool, not the application itself.

    Any solution or I just have to delete the application to avoid possible problems?

    Depending on where you downloaded it from, it may not have really been what you were trying to download. Scan the installer file with an AV program, and upload it to if it says it is clean. Never download from the links at the very top of a Search Result, and never download any installer except from the Website for the maker of the software.

    I'd do another search for that software, and download it again, from Spybot's own site.
