I have a laptop with Windows8.1 Intel Core i3 2.60 GHz 64-bit OS x64-based processor 4 GB memory 584 GB free space

Bitcoin Core minimum recommended is Windows 7/8.x 1 GB memory 80 GB disk space

Downloaded Bitcoin Core and attempted to install and I get the message “Incompatible Program”

What can I do to install the program or get a compatible program?

  • Do you have anti-virus or anti-malware running? Make sure you downloaded the windows version and disable any anti-virus.
