    How to Allow running of the Beyond TV Wizard in Windows 10?

    Hi All,

    How do I allow the running of the Beyond TV Wizard in Windows 10 Home Premium and Windows 10 Pro 64-Bit Build 14393.105?

    An administrator has blocked you from running this program.

    I can't reinstall it, nor can I run its Wizard.

    Where do you go in Windows 10 to unblock a blocked program?

    It runs in the Administrator Hidden Account.

    It does not run in the User Account ID with Administrator privileges.

    Thanks in advance!

    I doubt you can because BeyondTV is no longer updated. I gave up on it a few years back.

    Hi Winuser,

    Beyond TV is still working in Windows 10. I use it with an Hauppauge Win-TV HVR-1265 Card and Over the Air Digital Signals, in Windows 10 Pro 64-Bit Build 14393.105.

    That's not BeyondTV, That's just the driver for your Hauppauge card.

    Beyond TV Lives on Windows 10: Here's how I got it to work

    Sorry to revive an old thread, but I recently upgraded my HTPC from Windows XP to Windows 10 (home) over the weekend and successfully got Beyond TV to work as expected. I've created this account specifically to share with other users what steps I took to get it working.

    I'm loosely detailing the steps here in hopes that anyone else looking to do this can find this useful. I spent two days banging my head against the wall so I may be missing something, but I *think* I got everything down.

    Prerequisite: Windows 10 must be fully running and able to access the internet.

    Enable the Admin account:
    1.) From your user account, open an admin command prompt (right-click cmd shortcut, run as admin)
    2.) Type "net user administrator /active:yes" to activate the hidden Administrator account
    3.) Log off your user account and run all subsequent steps under the Admin account

    Download the Drivers:
    4.) On Admin account, download all the Windows 10 Drivers for your hauppauge card(s). I have the quad-hd tuner, an older 1850 model as well as a USB-based 955Q. I think the 1850 and USB use the same driver download file
    5.) Also download WINTV 8.5. You may not need this since it costs $10 to get the valid serial number, but because I had a WINTV 7 disk, it let me download and install WINTV8.0 without any issue for free.
    6.) Download the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package as well as .NET3.0 and 3.5. I'm not hotlinking these as those download links might change. Just google them for your OS version (32bit = x86 or 64bit)
    7.) Install all of those BeyondTV dependencies first and make sure your tuner card can play a video feed through the native WINTV application.

    Extract and install BeyondTV:
    8.) I used WINRAR to extract the contents of the BeyondTV.exe installer to a single folder. After that, right-click on the BeyondTV exe and "run as administrator". Kind of redundant since you are on the Admin account, but I got success doing this way.
    9.) Once BeyondTV finishes its installation, go to the folder it installed to (Program Files (x86)) and navigate to the "SetupWizard.exe" and right click that and run-as-admin as well.

    This will kick-start the actual setup to configure your DTV card, download the channel line-up and hopefully if all the drivers are installed correctly, show you the TV preview after it has done the channel scan portion. If you have gotten that far, you should be good to go for setting up recordings.

    Other notes:
    I ran into an issue where it wouldn't record anything and spent a good while before I realized I set the configuration to record to my file server (Netgear readynas) before I actually set that folder as part of the recording pool. If you are pointing the recording to the local drive, you shouldn't encounter this.

    Also, I''ve left UAC enabled this entire time and it didn't block anything under the admin account. Because I'm running this setup on a dedicated HTPC, leaving beyondTV running on the Admin account isn't a big deal for me. I have not tried loading BeyondTV under the basic user account so your mileage may vary with that route.

    I hope this guide helps give BeyondTV some more life into it for Windows10 users. If anyone needs some clarification, I'll be checking in on this thread to respond to what I can. Since this is a brand new account, I don't think anyone can PM me.
