LAPTOP: HP-Support Assistant Framework

I upgraded to Windows-8 my Pavilion and installed HP-Support Assitant app.  Started framework and selected [Windows Update] option from menu pane.  On the screen displayed 'No Internet Connection detected'.  Though I am able to connect to internet using IE, but in HP-SUPPORT ASSITANT app not detected.  What would be the reason? if any help is appreciated.

Disconnect from the internet, Do a hard reset . Then unplug the power cord from the router, Wait 30sec then plug it back in. After that turn the notebook back on and reconnect to the internet.

I have the exact same problem. I upgraded to Windows 8.1 and HP support assistant does not recognize that I am connected to the internet. I am also running Hyper-V. All other internet applications work. There is a bug in Support Assistant.

I'm having the same problem on my HP Spectre X2 with Windows 8.1 Pro.

 

Can someone fix this bug?

 

Thanks,

Mircea

Do you happen to be running hyper-v? I see a lot of problems with the fact that the HP software seems to want to only use a hardware adapter and not recognize the virtual adapter. I called HP and they re-installed everything and it started working. It just updated to the latest release of the HP support software and now it doesn't work again. I am using Hyper-V and believe that is my problem

Not a permanent fix but: If you have Hyper-V enabled and you have created a Virtual Switch to "External Network" you need to change the Virtual Switch Manager settings to 'Internal network' as a connection type, and HP Support Center will be able to communicate with the HP Server.  Of course you need to do the opposite when you want to use your VM(s).

The problem is that HP still haven't informed their programmers that Hyper-V exists. So it will just not work and I guess it is intentional, otherwise they would have fixed it.
