Will zoom work on windows 8.1 – none:

Thanks for your feedback, it helps us improve the site. In reply to SEwing’s post on October 20, However, I would still like to know what causes this issue.
When exact date, preferably did you purchase the computer machine? Was Win8. January 1b. Comes with Windows 8 2. None 4. None 5.
None 6. None 7a. Issue relating to IE11 Desktop 7b. It did not. Members of the ‘Windows Insider’ scheme have been able to install W11 before the release date. This is a cunning way to iron out any final bugs, using the help of those curious to see what comes next. Unless you have your new version that recognises W11 ready before that due date, there will be a clamour from those who have upgraded. Maybe you would like to post a link to it here for the community to test.
Can you confirm that you computer meets the actual hardware requirements for Virtual Backgrounds. Can you confirm that Zoom is otherwise working on your computer, other than Virtual Backgrounds? I know at least one person running Zoom on Windows 11 – but I know they would not have been using Virtual Backgrounds. The OS was updated from W10 within a couple of days of purchasing. I have not yet noticed any other problems, having used Zoom for several meetings in the last couple of days.
I Wanted to know if it worked with the Pentium Gold as I’m looking to buy a laptop with this processor? My Laptop is a brand new one with the W11 update. Is just zoom, the one giving me the background issue. Other than that, works fine. Please, help us on this! I need to use the background for work. Thank you Rupert. I too could not use the virtual backgrounds but I installed Zoom again using the link you provided for the 64 bit and now I am in Zoom virtual background la la land!
Thank you so much for providing the link. I am still convinced that somewhere in the code is a table of acceptable operating systems – and W11 is not among them! Since this machine was able to jump Microsoft’s high hurdle to install W11, I am sure that it is not deficient. After installing the linked version and finding that backgrounds were still unsupported, I checked for updates. That version was 5. I hoped that Mepemep’s success was because Zoom had slipped in a sly fix, but I was disappointed.
I downloaded from the link provided and I was able to participate in my meeting successfully with a selected virtual background. As I was closing down the app I checked to see what version I was on and I noticed that there was an update available. I updated to 5. Yes, I am running Windows I also am a Tech professional so I know my stuff.
Zoom is working perfectly for me. Sorry that you don’t have the same experience. Help me! What did you do to get a virtual background to work on Windows 11? I was in touch with Zoom just today and they said Windows 11 does not support a virtual background and I should “work around” on another machine. Not an option and Zoom is no help! Sorry Zoom but this is ridiculous!
Especially for paying customers! So I am supposed to downgrade my system for a virtual background? Doesn’t make sense! I thought that it was just the issue of W11 being left off the list of operating systems, but others have said that they have got backgrounds to work.
I can only conclude that the restriction applies to machines with shared display memory, everything else checks out. However features like eyebrow tracking work, which I would think called for more vision processing ingenuity, so maybe Zoom will get around to the background problem one day.
Are you having problems with static image backgrounds or with video backgrounds? I found that I can use static ones but not video. I am using Windows 10, but I wonder if the same thing happens with Windows 11, or if Windows 11 is more restrictive as to the hardware you must have for video backgrounds.
I’d be happy with a static image! If I select ‘I have a green screen’ that can be enabled, but all the background clutter shows through. In all such cases, such as the ‘upgrade to W11’ test, there should be a ‘I accept that my system might cause problems’ button should force a pass to the test. Friend has an Asus windows 10 laptop with the and gets the message saying the specs are not up to it. Which suggests Zoom perhaps do not recognise it, even though it’s better than previous gen i3’s that they allow..
I don’t understand why they would have that requirement, when there is no similar requirement for Intel processors. I am having the same issues and I have the same processor.. So it means we can’t use background for now then? Actually, it seems to be more complicated. I downgraded to Windows 10 and I am still having the same problem. And with another computer, a desktop with an Intel processor, Core i7, 4 cores, 3. Something is wrong with Zoom. I suspect that the problem is the shared video memory.
It is interesting that the face recognition features, like party hat and eyebrows, do not seem to need that video memory. Highest score default Date modified newest first Date created oldest first.
I was able to disable pinch and zoom in Windows 8. Improve this answer. Does this work for windows 8 and with externally hosted content? Are you modifying the content? My understand of the question is that the OP can’t modify it. Working on Windows 10 — Gus Costa. Unfortunately this is not possible. I used this code, and finally got it to work.

Will zoom work on windows 8.1 – none:. Troubleshooting Zoom Issues
Was this reply helpful? Yes No. Sorry this didn’t help. I got around this problem by enabling the toolbar “Status bar”. On the status bar, you can tweak custom zoom level without any issue. Please answer each of the following [admittedly tedious] diagnostic questions in a correspondingly-numbered list in your very next reply, preferably without quoting this post:.
Did you upgrade a e. What is the full name of your currently-installed third-party anti-virus application or security suite if any and when approx. What third-party anti-spyware applications i. What third-party firewall, if any? Doesn’t matter if you never used or Activated it. Is Firefox, Chrome or any other alternate browser installed?
Are you in the habit of using “Registry cleaners” e. I believe we are not the only ones who observe this behavior. The other places like the setting icon at the upper right or the status bar, both are fine. State your current IE version e. Thank you. If you originally upgraded to Win8 – not Win8. Oh interesting, starting my own thread if I share the same problem as the original poster will “avoid the duplication of effort”.
I would never have thought of that if you did not point it out. Now that you mention it, I see it too in W8. The same two entries of Alt-x Z Tools, Zoom are available. And, if you have the Page menu configured in the Command bar you could also use its Alt-P Z apparently to do the same thing.
So it looks like something didn’t get fixed that could have been reported during the “Preview” but only in the View, Zoom menu which is deprecated anyway. OTOH it would be a way of ensuring that only a certain range or set of Magnification options more realistic than the previously provided absurd and useless ones would be possible, so perhaps it’s WAD?
