I have reinstalled a clean copy of Windows 8.1 on my X240 and can't reinstall Lenovo Settings due to the minimum requirement of Windows 10 in the Store and on the Website. How can I obtain a working copy for Windows 8.1?

We took Lenovo Settings off of the Store because there was compatibility problem, and I don't think we will be putting it back for Windows 8.1 at this point in 2018. But I can help you install it without using the store. First, download and unzip this: https://1drv.ms/u/s!ApXWjQB7_a1bhfth3eCDBZpZBZzbiQ
1. open a command prompt as administrator
2. change to the folder where you extracted the zip
3. run "install.bat" and wait for it to finish
If there are any errors on the screen, post a screenshot here and I'll keep helping you.
