AVG internet security 2015 not workable on Windows 10 Home Insider Preview RRS feed

  • Question

  • I tried to install AVG internet security 2015 on Windows 10 Home Insider Preview build 14931 but it's not workable !!!

    Here is the message which appears :

    "Votre application n’est pas compatible avec Windows 10

    L’ouverture de l’application que vous essayez d’utiliser a été bloquée, car elle risque d’endommager votre PC ou d’entraîner la perte de données. Cela tient au fait que certaines applications compatibles avec une version précédente de Windows peuvent ne pas l’être avec Windows 10.

    Accédez au site web de support technique destiné aux développeurs d’applications et vérifiez si une version nouvelle ou mise à jour de cette application est disponible pour Windows 10."

    Is there a solution?

  • Hi Steph,

    Based on your error message, your application is not compatible with Windows 10.

    I suggest you go to the web site of technical support for developers of applications and check if a new version or update of this application is available for Windows 10 as what it prompted.

    Based on its official suggestion in the following article, you should upgrade your AVG product to the latest version before you install the Windows 10 update by following the steps below:

    1. Download and run the installation package: click here to download.
    2. The installation dialogue will ask for a license number. As long as your current license number has not expired yet, you can use it to activate the new installation.
      In case you can not find your license number, you can use License retrieval form.

    More information, read this:
