Windows 8.1 is out now, and we have identified a serious incompatibility with Secure Shell (SSH) in all AccuTerm releases on Windows 8.1. An update for AccuTerm 7 is available. This is a free upgrade for all AccuTerm 7 users. Click here to download the 7.1b-sp2 Standard version, or here to download the 7.1b-sp2 Lite version.
If you are running any earlier version of AccuTerm, and plan on installing it on a Windows 8.1 machine, you will not be able to establish a Secure Shell connection. While we officially do not support AccuTerm versions prior to AccuTerm 7 on Windows 8 (or 8.1) (as clearly documented in our FAQs page) some users are running old versions of AccuTerm on Windows 8. If you use Secure Shell, you must upgrade to the latest release of AccuTerm 7 to use Secure Shell on Windows 8.1.
