I think you're looking for the hardware forum. This is software. And you need to give a brand name and model number so that way people know what device you're talking about. Peace.

sorry guys, was thinking something else and writing another. i meant to say, there is a new cool piano up on the new start up menu. was excited, next day tried to show my daughter, but after double clicking it, nothing opened. i also noticed this for all the other apps i.e flash cards etc. is there another way to open these apps. do you think it is a compatibility issue?

MEDIA PLAY/EDIT
TmpgEnc 4.1 (x32)
Cool Edit Pro 2.1 (x32)
K-lite Codec Pack Full (x32)
K-lite Codec Pack (x64) I use 'Media Player Classic 64 bits' to play videos by default
Samsung Kies (x32) will carsh when loading its components

UTILES
JDownloader (x32) Actually, running under a 64 bits JDK

Speccy 1.13 (x64)

DEVELOPMENT
JDK 7.1 (x64)
Notepad++ 5.9.5 (x32)

is advised that you install a 64 bits version of MySql Server when you have a Win x64
MySQL

Visual Studio 11 Express
Say: Of course it works, it was bundled with this preview. Unlike some metro apps, I'm glad to tell that Visual Studio works great.
NetBeans 7.0.1 (x32)

GAMES

It seems that WoW64 Compatibily Layer has been improved since Windows 7.

DivX Web Player (Divx package 8.1.0) WORKS !


vrosa, yes the offline Player seems to work in all versions, only the Web Player works with the Version from 8.00 -> 8.1.0.

PS : DivX Web Player works only with IE 10 in Desktop mode.

F-Secure Client Security 9.20 : Run the installer as Windows 7, after this, when you try run the first time the GUI appears a compatibilty message from Windows, just ignore it and you are done.

I got Skype to work and also AIM. Thanks for the help.
I still can't get my simple pass identity fingerprint reader to work. Hp pavilion dv7.

That's an easy one. Just go over to HP's website like I did, and download the Windows 7 driver for the fingerprint reader. I know, I know you had it on before you installed Windows 8 DP, so did I, and the HP buttons too. Going to need to download the drivers for that as well.

Since the 1st post has not been updated since 09-22-2011, this should be UNSTICKIED
and allow someone else to start new and hopefully maintain the 1st post with updated information.

No one wants to read page after page of postings. All the information should be in the 1st post.
