    I think you're looking for the hardware forum. This is software. And you need to give a brand name and model number so that way people know what device you're talking about. Peace.

    window 8 developer preview


    sorry guys, was thinking something else and writing another. i meant to say, there is a new cool piano up on the new start up menu. was excited, next day tried to show my daughter, but after double clicking it, nothing opened. i also noticed this for all the other apps i.e flash cards etc. is there another way to open these apps. do you think it is a compatibility issue?

    DivX Web Player (Divx package 8.1.0) WORKS !


    vrosa, yes the offline Player seems to work in all versions, only the Web Player works with the Version from 8.00 -> 8.1.0.

    PS : DivX Web Player works only with IE 10 in Desktop mode.

    F-Secure Client Security 9.20 : Run the installer as Windows 7, after this, when you try run the first time the GUI appears a compatibilty message from Windows, just ignore it and you are done.
