    So maybe you should change the thread to Programs not compatible with Windows 8 and how to fix them?

    I see no problem with having a thread for compatibillity regarding Windows 8. If anything it makes good sense to have a list of programs that are either compatible or not. In light of that i shall edit the thread title and make it a sticky. +1 to OP.

    This will be my only post in this thread. I respectfully disagree. There's just absolutely too much software that is compatible with Windows 8. The list would be much shorter if we can have a list of software that ISN'T. The software that isn't compatible, we can address and try to fix. People here to get problems solved and questions answered. They will most likely install the software first to see if it works, it takes the same time to install it as it does to see if it does.

    With that in mind, I would like to offer up a counter-list of software that doesn't work with Windows 8 builds.
