I just installed Windows 8 Dev 32-bit on an old Asus N10Jseries netbookwith a Atom N70 processor and 2 GB of memory. It runs the Metro UI even at 1024 x 600 resolution. However the Metro UI buttons for Metro apps do not work at all.
The only buttons that work are for normal Windows applications and Windows Explorer and Desktop. The Control Panel button leads off to some more Metro UI and loads that part fine. However all the neat little apps like Store, News, Socialite, Stocks, Weather, Tweet@rama, etc. etc. don't load anything at all when I click them.
What am I doing wrong here? Is it that I'm simply using old hardware or that I have to do something more to enable the apps or something? I'm using the 32-bit version on this old netbook so I'm wondering if the apps don't work on that. I know I might be jumping the gun and this might be a specific scenario but is anyone else not having any of their Metro UI apps being able to launch like me?
Also if this is the wrong place for this thread please move it.
