This is the fourth or fifth posting I've made about 4K Video Downloader. All of them refer to the FREE version.
To repeat what I've written previously, I'm a VERY "light" user: twice a month maximum and only to download one You Tube vid at a time. Hmmm, OK, maybe once I downloaded two vids in one session, but I can't remember when that was.
Anyway, I've been using 4K Video Downloader for 1.5 - 2 years(?) with no problem whatsoever on Win7Pro-SP1 x64. It's always worked, it's fast, and it's free. It's also easy to use: I was able to get my sister up and running with it during a 15-minute phone call. She's ok with computers, and though it sometimes takes me awhile to explain things to her, this was really easy.
Anyway, about two months ago, I got a new machine with Win10Pro x64. I tried to install the previous version of 4K Video Downloader (the one before 4.13.4), but I wasn't able to, al though I'm pretty good with computers. I even got some assistance from the dev / company(?), but nothing worked, so I just gave up.
Then yesterday I saw there had been a version update, so I decided to try it again on my Win10 machine. This time it installed immediately and worked the way it's supposed to.
I guess I should mention here that at some point between the last time I tried to install 4K Video Downloader and yesterday, my Win10 updated from v. 1909 to 2004. I have no idea whatsoever whether that had anything to do with my success.
So now I have it up and running on all seven of my machines. For my purposes, it works great. My thanks to the developers for making the free version it available.
