No problems so far with Live version 8.1.4 on a laptop running Vista 64-bit. I chose the program-only update option, which was much faster than previous updates (no re-scanning of the whole Library). I stressed the CPU a bit for some testing with multiple instances of synth VSTs (Harmless and Sylenth), and my standard suite of USB MIDI controllers (LPK25, LPD8, APC40). As I only have one such device, I was not able to test the new multiple APC40/APC20 automatic chaining feature. Also, I might not be the best tester for this update since I never encountered any of the bugs/crashes mentioned in the change log.

Thanks for the post. I'm in the same group as you - those who are not having any problems - so your post is a confidence booster that they didn't break anything while fixing bugs :^)

The new program only update is going to be a real time saver.

I'm using Harmless and Sylenth as well by the way. Here are some free presets I created for Harmless earlier this year - http://www.modulatethis.com/imageline-harmless-free-presets.html.
