Looks like a firewall (being a fresh install most likely the windows firewall) is blocking Swiftkit. As the patch notes aren't loading and the timeout error is because swiftkit can't reach the update server.

 

My first suggestion if you haven't tried this already would be to right click swiftkit and go run as admin.

 

My Second suggestion would be to allow swifkit access through your firewall.

 

 

you can do this by type "allow app" into the start menu this will then bring up the windows firewall where you can add swiftkit to the exceptions.

I tried the admin, that dies nothing different, no other windows install did this, that also does not explain the weird permission issues im having which im sure is the real problem, could this be possible related to a security feature in my motherboards bios?

Also on my main computer swiftkit isn’t even on the firewall exceptions list, I think the case is this; i’m running swiftkit from an installer that is 4 years old. I think whoever compiled the newest version of the installer screwed up since this is the first time I downloaded it in 4 years, I think my best bet is to find an older version of the swiftkit installer and update from there like I’ve been doing on my main computer

The firewall does nothing just as I assumed it wouldnt, again i think whoever compiled the installer messed it up.

not even older versions are working, something is wring with a security setting in my bois or with the install of windows 7 itself, i will have to keep reinstalling windows 7 untill it works since i cant play runescape without swiftkit as a screenshot app

Like Simmo said, it looks like a firewall issue since it's not loading patch notes.

 

I see in one of the screenshots that it has saved a debug log in the SwiftKit folder. If you still have that log, could you post it here?

It actually hasn’t changed since the first time, the real issue i feel is the permissions which I have since changed to avail.
