    Lightscribe & Windows 8


    Has anyone had any luck with the Lightscribe disk labeling applications on Windows 8 RTM? I've tried the latest version (1.18.26.7, which won't even install) and an older one (1.18.24.1) which will install but bombs out after starting the labeling process.

    Thanks in advance!

    I used the 1.18.24.1 Software also but used the SimpleLabeler 1.18.15.1 and it works fine.

    Glad to be of help. I was going to cleanout some SkyDrive junk awhile back but got lazy. Good thing, I guess! I'll just leave it up there in case someone else stumbles across the thread.

    An update...

    After a fresh re-install of Win 8 x64 on my desktop, I tried Lightscribe again and this time the latest version of the Lightscribe System Software (1.18.26.7) installed successfully (I chose "Run as Administrator"). In addition, the latest Lightscribe Simple Labeler installed ok (and actually works) as well...

    You must live right. Over at LightScribe forum they are all using 1.18.24.1 as they can't get that new version to install. And their site doesn't list any version for windows 8.
