Error when starting the program

When I run the program I get an error: The procedure entry point DiscardVirtualMemory not found in dll C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Obsidian\Obsidian.exe

Obsidian error

Windows 8.1. All updates are installed.
Obsidian Version 1.2.7

Windows 8.1 is no longer supported by Microsoft, so Electron (the framework Obsidian is built in) has dropped support for it too.

I recommend you upgrade to a supported version of Windows (or switch to Linux or another OS) — especially if that computer connects to the Internet.

Downloaded another version (1.1.16) from here: Releases · obsidianmd/obsidian-releases · GitHub. The program has started!

Maybe it will help someone too.

Current version: v1.2.7
Installer version: v1.1.16
