    Samsung Kies Doesnt Work

    Yesterday i installed samung kies to update my sgs2 in Win8 CP.
    The problem is, when i launch the program nothing happens. I Check the task-manager and the program is listed under Backgrond processes :/
    Sorry for my horrible grammar.

    Sorry, but i'm afraid that Samsung Kies isn't compatible with Windows 8.

    Same problem here. Latest KIES version will not run under Windows 8 Consumer Preview. Changing compatibility makes no difference. Re-installed KIES version 1.5.something from a year old CD and it works just fine in Windows 8. Just don't update that version (yet).
