So, fired up win 8.1 rtm, with the latest Logitech Gaming Software (LGS_8.50.281_x64) for my G19 keyboard, and G35 headset, and during the install my pc just hangs! 

Had these issues ages back, but with LGS v8.45 seemed to work fine. 

 

I also had no issue installing 8.45 on 8.1 CP, but this rtm version wont install LGS.... Anyone else having these issues???

 

I tried some other suggested things from the Logitech community forums, to uninstall Nvidia drivers... but no joy!

 

If anyone has the same issues, or a solution / suggestion i could try ... that would be greatly appreciated! :)

I was trying to figure out how to send it to you here, it's almost 60 meg, (because Logitech have updated so finding older versions aren't as easy now)

 Correction, I'm using 8.40.83, my apologies

Updated from 8 to 8.1 leaving my settings and apps in place and my existing install of LGS 8.45 is still working at least.

Yeah, on 8.1 preview, the 8.43 drivers installed and worked perfectly... on RTM though... nothing! probably going to have to consider going back to 8.1 preview, or 8 ... and wait it out! :)

Sulphy, I don't know if you'll ever see this because it's over a year later, but you're a damn genius.  Would've never guess but it worked.  Thanks.
