If your HttpWatch Professional license key allows access to version 9.x you can simply download and run the latest setup program to get the update.
One of the issues you may run into is that the current version of HttpWatch is not compatible with EPM (Enhanced Protected Mode). This was first enabled by default on Windows 8.1, but then disabled by default in a subsequent update.
Installing HttpWatch with EPM enabled will cause this message to be displayed:
and HttpWatch will be shown as being incompatible in the Manage Add-ons window:
HttpWatch can be used if you disable EPM by unchecking the ‘Enhanced Protected Mode *’ checkbox in Tools->Internet Options->Settings->Security:
We plan to add full support for EPM in a future update to HttpWatch.
Another limitation of HttpWatch on Windows 8.1 is that it currently does not support the SPDY protocol in IE 11 even though it is enabled by default:
While HttpWatch is recording any potential SPDY connections are downgraded to ordinary SSL/HTTPS connections. Again this limitation will be addressed in a future update to HttpWatch.
There’s also a page level summary of the network operations required to load a page:
On the iPad the app now has a split screen button:
which will display the browser next to the waterfall chart of HTTP requests:
In portrait mode the display is split horizontally:
