    I updated to 2.05 and all my profiles are gone. I thought they were stored in the cloud. Im exporting every profile to a file to back them up after I remake them.

    *EDIT* Once installed, the program says that it's version 2.03. It won't detect your Nostromo UNLESS you run it as administrator (at least on a Win8 x64 system), but once you do that it programs and works fine.
    No kidding...that's good of them for a change. I guess they must still be Selling Nostromos.

    Cloud storage of the profiles I believe is only for the Synapse stuff, not our nostromo.

    That being said, it kept my profiles that I had set up on the 1.03 driver set, so at least I wasn't out anything.

    If they work under Windows 8, great, but I'm not sure if they will or not. The Belkin Nostromo models seem to be a EOL product, so I woudln't expect any support for those models at all anymore. They haven't updated the software for it in a very long time, and it's not compatible with the Razer Nostromo software either.

    I've been trying to get my Razer Nostromo(not Belkin)(original not the new one) working on my laptop that has W8 installed. Works fine on my W7 desktop with the latest drivers for that windows version.

    I've tried installing the W8 dedicated drivers and still the configure app quits on launch because it couldn't find a device.(Nostromo shows up in Devices and Printers).

    I have also tried installing the driver version on my W7 desktop(2.01?), but that did not work either. Then I also tried the 1.03 drivers which again did not work.

    In all cases I installed under admin(UAC is also turned off). I set the configure app to run as admin as well, but not sure what else I may need to set.

    I also have Synapse 2 installed because I have a Naga Epic. I don't know if there is a conflict between the two installs. If so, that would be a major disappointment. I'm wondering why they can't just make the Nostromo work under Synapse. But that's another story.

    I'm not sure what else to try. I don't know if I screwed something up by installing all those different versions and there are legacy files that are causing an issue. I really need to get this to work as I'm traveling next week and will be using the laptop for LAN play.

    I've also been trying to find forums for Razer products but can't seem to find any. I can't fathom why Razer wouldn't have a forum of their own.

    You need to run it as administrator, and the task-bar quick icon doesn't work either. They really need fix it, but I guess that the fact it works at all is a bonus, lol.

    So yes, I have tried running as admin. I also thought that disabling UAC pretty much negated having to do that anyway. I'm also assuming that you are referring to the configuring app that is in the Razer program folder. I've tried that.

    Unfortunately I'm at work right now so I can't mess around with it until later. I will double check that I'm running as admin again. Until then I'd appreciate any other suggestions.
