ThinkVantage Active Protection System Dissapeared after Win 8.1 Upgrade

2013-11-17, 21:12 PM

The ThinkVantage Active Protection System dissapeared from my ThinkPads after upgrading to Win 8.1.

 

I was going to reinstall it from the Lenovo ThinkVantage page but the Win 8 64bit version is not available for download.

 

Oddly enough, the 32bit version is available.

 

Is this a temporary situation?  Will there be a Win 8.1 version?

 

Can someone from Lenovo explain what to expect?

OK, Active Protection 64 bit for Win 8.1 is now available for download and working great!

 

I guess I panicked and was thinking that Lenovo would quit supporting this excellent tool (It has happened before)!
