Topic: Software Informer stuck on startup


I just installed Software Informer on two of my laptops. On both, the client gets stuck at the startup screen where the letters get filled in, right at the last piece of the r.

It happened in both Windows 7 and now in Windows 8.1. The two machines differ greatly:
Main laptop:
CPU: i5 4200U
OS: Windows 8.1 64-bit fully updated

Old laptop:
CPU: Core 2 Duo T8100
OS: Windows 8.1 64-bit with some updates left

All other specs should be irrelevant.
Can anyone help me with this? Thanks in advance!

We apologize for any inconvenience caused. Kindly specify some points for us to resolve the issue:

1) Do you use any proxy or some specific network settings?

2) Do you use any special software to connect to the Internet?

Sincerely yours,

Dear Tom,

Somehow the client started working after a reboot. Still, it installed and ran fine on my desktop (i5 760).

I do not use either of the options you mentioned. My laptops are connected through Wi-Fi, if that makes a difference. The connection should otherwise be stable in both circumstances.

Thank you for the response,

I think it might have been caused by a temporary problem either on our servers or with your Internet connection,
Please let me know if you experience the issue again,
