    Win 8 & Revo Uninstaller ?prob?


    I've been using Revo (free) for years but since buying a new laptop with Win 8.1 it doesn't appear to picking up on all installed programs. Do I need to tell Revo of all installation folders and if so, how?!

    I'm guessing this isn't strictly a Win 8 problem but I can't find any Revo forums.

    Win 8.1.1 Pro x64

    Free version supports only 32-bit, if you have 64-bit Windows, you need to buy Pro or try something else.

    Of course, I keep forgetting about 64bit!! I've been with Revo for so long I'll buy the Pro version.

    Thanks TarikuOkami.

Hello, I'm trying to decide on an "uninstaller" software. It doesn't have to be free as I don't mind purchasing the software as long as it's from a somewhat reputable company that wont disappear after 6-12 months or keep throwing out updates just to make additional cash for no reason. I've...
