    I have problem running WEI on my windows 8


    Hello. I have problem running WEI on my windows 8. It just stops and gives the message WEI on your computer could not be computed. Cannot complete assessment. What should I do please.
    P.S. I was able to run it while using windows 7.

    Welcome to EightForums, mide.

    Any yellow flags in Device Manager? All drivers look good?

    Any issues in Action Center?

    Thanks... There is no yellow flag in the device manager and no issues in action center. All drivers up to date too.

    Quite honestly I haven't come across anyone that's had this problem before with 8.

    I see you have Kaspersky AV. Try disabling it to run WEI. You may also want to run this at least 3 times: SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8

    You're welcome, mide. I haven't the slightest idea what could be wrong. I was hoping it was a broken file within the WIE program itself. Have you searched MS site and/or the internet for the problem? I'd do that for you, but I'm on my Droid right now.

    When was the last time you rebooted? Do you use CCleaner? Any Registry cleaner/repair?

    Yes, I think there's no need for 3rd party AV for Defender is at kernel level now.

    Ok... Thanks once again. finally got hold of microsoft support center. The problem is specific to intel 965 express family chipset. I installed my version of win 8 on a friends pc (sony) and everything worked perfectly.
    Once again, thanks for the patience and help.....

    Not sure if I was much help. Perhaps pointed you in another direction. I'm glad you got it resolved.

    Thanks for posting your progress. Is there any fix for this?
