    Hi there
    Nero 7 Premium re-loaded (the last decent non too bloated version) works fine provided you download install DirectX first from the MS site BEFORE you start the install process.

    If you let the installer try and install Directx as part of the install process it will fail.


    Add the Mega Pack plugins so you can burn Audio CD's from FLAC files.

    The new Nero 11 Lite Free edition (good for basic CD / DVD burning / copying which is 99% of what most people want to do) won't work as it doesn't recognize W8 as an operating system -- It's looking for W7 / Vista / XP only.

    BTW not sure why people need Daemon Tools any more -- W8 will mount an ISO itself now -- just right mouse click on the iso file and the context menu will show MOUNT. This will mount the ISO for you. Eject when you've finished.

    Cheers

    Yeah, it appears none of the 2012 Autodesk products work on Win8 8102.

    The 2011 flavors work, though.

    WindowBlinds v7 -- Operational and Beta

    Installs, shows the different .wba options but clicking them does not change the GUI.

    Also, clicking some themes completely trashes the display, leaving only a black background and mouse cursor.

    There's gotto be a better way to tell people what works and what not, a listing is needed but not in a thread format with replies.

    aem, it seems there isn't any real consistency as some programs work well for some users but fail for others.

    I dunno if it can be done much differently, at this point, as MS hasn't presented any "official" list so, in the interim, with this Dev Preview (and the leaks prior), and until the Beta (maybe not even then) ... well, this is all we've got.
