Windows 8.1 Preview - Google Talk will not connect

I use two factor authentication with my Google Apps, and while Google Talk was working fine before the install of Windows 8.1 preview, it stopped after it was installed.

Going to and generating a new passpharse didn't help, but I found this:

I uninstalled Google Talk, and Google Talk plugin for Chrome and re-installed Google Talk from here:

I also reinstalled the Google Chrome voice and video plugin by starting a video call with a contact.

All seems to be working fine now.

  1. I've discovered that I no longer need this anyway. Chrome has now installed a new hangouts system tray app that lets me chat with my contacts. Just need to find a gmail indicator so I know when I have new mail.
