    Solved Installations never finish

    Sadly, there are countless other things that still don't install correctly, but they're not labeled compatible, so I wouldn't expect them to be. I'm probably going to back up again and get my Windows 7 back if there doesn't seem to be any hope of compatibility for some key programs later on.

    Solved Installations never finish

    I just made a local account and it installed. I don't know if it was the fact that it was local or a problem with my account specifically, but the install worked, and I can use it on my account.

    Solved Installations never finish

    Often at the beginning, some installations just don't finish on Windows 8. I wanted to try live streaming using XSplit (Says it's Windows 7 Compatible), that installer freezes at the beginning. I assume there were compatibility issues with Windows 8, so I try FFSplit, an opensource alternative...

    Solved Entire folder gone

    Yeah, I checked for the files in it. Luckily, I found out that about 9 and a half of those hours were me being in no rush, and learning the new programs (I upgraded from Photoshop CS6 from CS3, switched from Audacity to Adobe Audition CS6, switched from Sony Vegas to Adobe Premiere Pro CS6, and...

    Solved Entire folder gone

    I didn't have time to. I'd just made the intro, and I was testing it out. I was going to save it to my external drive after I saw how the first video looked with it. My first thought was that I had accidentally moved it, but when I searched my entire hard drive for it, it wasn't there. Also, I...

    Solved Entire folder gone

    I was working in Adobe Premiere Pro on a video, and I imported my intro scene which I just spent the past 10 hours working on. All of the sudden, a window pops up saying "Please locate Final Intro.mp4". I try to locate it, but the entire folder is gone. The folder contained the intro video, my...

    Folder and application icons appear in taskbar, then disappear

    When I don't use my taskbar (When I'm using a program or AFK), stuff appears in my taskbar. First it's usually a folder (like a folder would appear in Windows Explorer, sometimes a bunch open up (stacked). Then application icons open (not actual applications, but what I associate with blank...

    Will you upgrade? That is the question...

    It all depends on support for the programs I use which currently I'm having trouble with in the Consumer Preview. (I haven't updated to Release Preview because Microsoft doesn't feel like making the Windows.old work from the Consumer Preview to Release Preview--probably the most common upgrade...

    I tried to do an install using the iso, thinking that I'd be able to keep my files in Windows.old, but I was not, so I must wait until I get an external hard drive. le sigh :( I do know how to install with an iso. As I said, I've done it before. I could have installed it, but, obviously, I...

    Solved Release Preview Installer Not Working

    It's infinitely continuing the "checking apps and devices" part of the compatibility check. I haven't been able to run many program installations either since I installed the Consumer Preview. I was excited to get rid of it for the Release Preview, but then it happened again. I'm going to...

    Anyone using Windows 8 as Primary OS?

    I am. It's been pretty buggy so far, to the point where I can't run the installation for the Release Preview.

    At this point I've logged out, but when I logged out, it stayed on the "logging out" screen for about 10 minutes before I force shut down Windows. Then I restarted and everything seemed fine.

    No permission to restart Windows Explorer

    Windows Explorer crashed, and when I tried to restart it, it says that I don't have permission. I tried creating a new process, but it did not worth. I would prefer not to log off if I can. What can I do? Also, Windows Explorer crashes constantly. Is there a way to fix that?:sarc:

    Solved Windows Developer Preview 64 bit w/o tools iso?

    I can't boot in safe mode because I can't boot it at all. I've been trying to install the Consumer Preview all day, but it said that it couldn't find install.wim, and I re-downloaded and redid everything, but it still couldn't find that file from the English x64 iso. Is there any other way I...
