    Samsung Easy Settings does not run on Windows 8

    Hi, everyone.I have a SAMSUNG NP300E4A-B2BDR laptop currently running Windows 8 Pro RTM x64.The issue is that I can't run the Easy Settings application (which enables "Fn" key functions in order to adjust brightness, volume, set touchpad and wi-fi on/off etc).I can install successfully the application, but nothing happens when I attempt to run it (either by double clicking the shortcut in desktop or by pressing Fn + F1,keys which worked fine in Windows 7).The application simply does not start, and I can't use the shortcuts either (for example, Fn + F2/F3 should decrease/increase brightness respectively, but simply nothing happens).

    I checked SAMSUNG PC Windows 8 Upgrade and my laptop is listed as having drivers and softwares available for Windows 8.The executable name is "
    sSettings.exe, which is located in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Samsung\Settings".

    Does anyone know a solution to run Easy Settings in Windows 8?Thanks.
