-Run As Administrator option on the client install
-Logged on user is administrator of the machine

Sorry Tom, Windows 8.1 isn't a supported platform at this time and I'm not aware of any workarounds. Try on your mobile?

[I bet we're not getting a holiday card this year..]

Windows 8 should work - I've not heard contrary at least. I've asked our documentation team to be more explicit about SpeedFlex supported platforms in the next release.

To put things in perspective Win 8.1 shipped _after_ all of our current software releases.

It actually should be working at that point. SpeedFlex is just a console application that runs as a server like that.

Once you start SpeedFlex, go back into the ZD Web UI and initiate another speed test, and you should see that the test progresses.
