    All programs that are made with .NET 3.5 or earlier are incompatible with windows 8. The only .NET programs that currently work are the ones made with 4.0. If you try to run a program that uses 3.5, it will say that it needs to install the feature ".NET framework 3.5" and then installation will fail because .NET 4.0 is already built in.

    Lucky for you I put all Windows 8 info. I find on the web in Word documents. AskVG i/e Tweaking With Vischal had a article last week on how to fix your issue. Here's a zipped copy of his article.

    You may want to subscribe to his rss feed. I use Feed Demon.http://feeddemon.com/ and then add this sitee and this one to it's subscriptions list. http://www.askvg.com/ . You just click on the subscribe button and paste or type in any websites that have rss feeds in it. Alot of times you get the articles a day before they get posted on the websites.
