And in windows file Manager I can see Unknown device and no one word about Viscosity - I think probelm in your program and communication Windows 8.1. 64

Hi Evgeniy,

When you updated Viscosity, you should have been asked to install a driver, it appears you may have hit Enter (which defaults to Don't Install) or clicked the wrong button. Please run the Viscosity installer again, downloaded from below, and let us know if you do not see the driver install dialog, it should look something like the below:
