    Lightscribe Software / Template Labler Will Not Install

    RE: LightScribe - Downloads - Windows

    The installation of the free Lightscribe software driver (LS_Update_1.18.24.1_.exe) and the Simple Labeler (LightScribeSimpleLabeler_1.18.15.1.exe) free from installs fine in compatability mode.

    However, the Lightscribe Template Labeler (LightScribeTemplateLabeler_1.18.24.1.exe) will not install on Windows 8. The error message reads: "The operating system is not adequate for running Lightscribe Template Labeler." I have tried every compatibility setting and still get the same error message that blocks the install each time.

    I can burn a Lightscribe label just fine from other software on Windows 8.

    Just though I'd share this info.

    If you upgraded to Windows 8 From Vista or 7, the installation creates a folder 'Windows.old' on your hard drive, so hopefully you didn't delete it before trying to install Lightscribe. Go to the Program Files(x86) in the Windows.old folder and copy and paste the Lightscribe template labeler folder (the entire folder) into the Windows 8 Program Files (x86) folder, then create a shortcut for the executable file in that folder and put it on your desktop or pin it to your taskbar. Works perfectly, you can even add new templates after this.
