Hi,

 

It looks like the drivers are not compatible with Windows 8.1. Therefore, I would suggest you to download the drivers and install them in compatibility mode and check.

Follow the steps to install in Compatibility mode:

a.       Right click on the driver installation file and select Properties then tap or click on the Compatibility tab.

b.      Place a check in the Run this program in compatibility mode box.

c.       Tap or click the drop down box and select a previous Operating System, then tap or click OK.

Make older programs compatible with this version of Windows

Let us know about the status of the issue. We would be happy to help you further.

Using these steps does not solve the problem.  Is there some other way to make scree+ work with Windows 8.1?????

Tadasha's solution worked for me on W8.1.  Ran the .exe in W7 Compatability and now have spilt screens.

I'd say don't install it. It maximizes windows and even after uninstall any attempt to drag windows  maximises them. You don't get a full uninstall unless you manually close other apps (ASC and other )

Really superfluous  on an extended 2 monitor display , and counter productive when you can just use tabs.
