Hi, Adobe Fireworks won't start in Windows 8. It worked perfect in Windows 7 but won't anymore. I have tried CS3, CS4 and CS5 (I Dont have CS6) but they all do the same thing... Nothing. I have tried running them in compatibility mode for Windows 7 and XP. Also tried running as administrator but still wont start. Adobe Photoshop and other Adobe Products Work but not Fireworks.

I had a similar experience. I saw the process running in task manager (ctrl+alt+del > task manager) but no icon in the taskbar. Problem turned out to be a form asking to provide feedback. In Task Manager, expand the 'Adobe Fireworks CS5 (32 bit)' app by clicking the arrow left of it, then right click on the program that shows up underneath. Choose 'bring to front'. After this, a feedback form shows up, which you can cancel. Fireworks starts as normal after that.
