    Software issue

    I have a new hp laptop running windows 8, I use only quoting software, it works fine on my win7 PC but just stops at the login on my laptop, the company said it was a antivirus issue so I turned it all off but still the same. Disappointed with windows 8, Mac ftw

    Windows 8.1 Pro

    FYI, new versions of MacOS often have similar compatibility issues. This is nothing unique to Windows.

    The problem is that many software developers take shortcuts, and when something seems to work they ship it.. but a change that happens later breaks the undocumented behavior.

    You can try enabling the Windows 7 compatibility functionality. If you're in the Start Screen, right click on the icon for the application and choose Open File Location, then right click on the applications icon and choose properties. Then go to compatibility tab and tick the checkbox "Run this application in compatibility mode for" and then select Windows 7 from the dropdown.
