    Windows 8

    If you upgraded to Windows 8 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. 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 Windows 8 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.

    Lightscribe and win8

    My old windows folder is for the most part empty. This crap makes me want to go back to WIN7. Also, Lightscribe site says they don't support the forum anymore and have taken it down......

    Lightscribe version works well with Windows 8 64bit. Can't speak for the 32bit, but it should . . .

    I found that the latest LS software and the Simple labeler will install under Windows 8.1 (i used compatibly for W/7), but the LightScribeTemplateLabeler_1.18.27.10.exe will not install on it. I use an old version of SureThing so i do not actually need any LS labeler, but a complicated hack to install the TemplateLabeler is here.

    I had gotten it going once then it refused to work so I ended up downloading "audio label" free from cnet and it has the lightscribe template labeler in it works great.
