    Lightscribe Template Labeler: works!!!


    hello,

    first of all, greetings to everyone forum members. I ask forgiveness in advance because my English is very poor.

    Since I started testing Windows8, I realized that the Template Labeler Lighscribe software could not be installed on the new operating system.

    The truth is that I'm crazy doing tests, and I think in the end I got it working. I explain how.


    1. The first step is to install the LightScribe System Software (LSS). You have to install it in compatibility mode.
    2. Then you have to get the installation folder LightScribe Template Labeler, from a computer that it is installed on Windows 7 (the folder is C: \ Program Files (x86) \ LightScribe Template Labeler)
    3. You have to copy that folder on the C: \ Program Files (x86) of your Windows8 instalation.
    4. It only remains to get a shortcut of the Templatelabeler.exe executable file to your desktop.


    I've tried it on a clean installation of Windows8 and it worked.

    I hope this little trick is useful while they take a version that is compatible.

    greetings and thanks,


    pd . If you have no chance of getting the folder from a windows7 installation, notify forum and I'll try to upload a link.

    Wanted to confirm that this does indeed work, thank you for the effort.

    If you upgraded to WIn8 From Vista or 7, the installation creates a folder 'Windows.old' on your hard drive, so hopefully you didn't delete it before trying to install Lightscribe. As highlands suggests, go to the Program Files(x86) in the Windows.old folder and copy and paste the Lightscribe template labeler folder (the entire folder) into the WIN8 Program Files (x86) folder, then create a shortcut for the executable file in that folder and put it on your desktop or pin it to your taskbar. Works perfectly, you can even add new templates after this.

    I wanted to thank you for the suggestion about copying the Template Labeler file over from an older OS...I have a new 64-bit Windows 8.1 desktop...was able to copy over the Template Labeler folder from a Vista 32 laptop and get it to work. Much obliged!
