    Installing Software


    OK, so long story short had windows 8 consumer preview. Loved it. Windows 8 Pro, hate it. Have to change a million things I didn't have to before.

    I previously had Autodesk Inventor 2013 installed. It installed just fine on consumer preview no errors or anything. Now with Windows 8 Pro I get an error saying the firewall is closing the site, stopping network ports and something else. Turned windows fire wall and defender off and I still have the same problem.

    Thanks to whoever can help me.

    The method I was using to install the programs was the problem. They use a online direct download and if the page refreshes it messes up the install. Browser download solved this.

My new laptop is on the way! YaY! So I am preparing myself to install a software package that I know is compatible with Windows 8. It is very large-over 20 gig-and demands a lot of RAM when installing and then 'indexing' itself which can take 8 hours, at least. My question is, given the 'lock'...
Hi all It seems to me that this is one area needs a bit of working on -- if you have an application that has loads of sub menus -- so that in total you might have 30 choices then the entire 30 are shown up on the metro panels meaning you have to right scroll forever to get to the option you want....
