    Windows 8 Security


    I am having a problems installing a program on Windows 8 which installed fine on windows 7. Compatibilty checker says it should be fine. I suspect that there maybe a new security features which is preventing it installing correctly.


    Is there anything in Windows 8 which could possibly prevent this program installing correctly

    Thanks of any help

    Hi FuturDreamz

    I have checked with Sony support and as far as they are concerned there are no issues with Windows 8


    Where has it been reported that it is not compatible

    I just googled "Sony Sound Forge 10 Pro Windows 8" and there were a few hits of people having errors. No solutions though.

Post your ideas/suggestins/wants for improvements to be added to the next version of Windows. I'd like to see UAC improved. More information about exactly what's going on could be handy. Bit-locker available in more versions and not just Ultimate. What do you all want to see?
