Does MVPS Hosts support Windows 8.1?

Unread postby gakiman » August 19th, 2014, 11:01 am

Hi there,

I used to use this forum many years back, and thats when I was introduced to MVPS Hosts (from the secutiry tips and tricks section of this website). Great piece of sotware imo, very helpful.

Bought a new laptop today after however many years and wanted to again download MVPS Hosts onto the new laptop, however, when going to the software's website, I was unable to discern whether the software supported Windows 8.1 or not (which is what my new laptop is running).

Can anybody help me out?

It appears to support Win 8.1... see note in the main page for MVPS Hosts: http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.htm
Important Note: The HOSTS file now contains a change in the prefix in the HOSTS entries to "0.0.0.0" instead of the usual "127.0.0.1".
This was done to resolve a slowdown issue that occurs with the change Microsoft made in the "TCP loopback interface" in Win8.1.

There are specific instructions for Windows 8... so... I would assume they need to be followed for Win 8.1 as well.
