    I just installed the 8.1 preview and the only program so far that doesn't work is MP 1.4.
    I get the OS not supported error.
    Is there a chance a patch or quick fix might be put out, or should I restore my backup?



    Thanks,
    Tamvegas

    Have you tried Compatability Mode for Windows 8?
    Sounds like a simple version check to me...

    Version is just unknown. And come on, it is a preview that is just out for what 48h? And you upgrade a production system. Preview are for testing, so you install them in a VM.

    Update in the source will come as soon as a developer hacks in the new version...

    Yes thank you, tried Win8 compatibility mode. Definitely a simple version check error.

    Correct Scythe, it is a preview. And isn't that how we check for compatibility? Like testing every alpha, beta and RC of MP for the past 5 years or so?
    As I said, if a quick patch is coming, I'll wait. If not a restore will happen in short order and I'll have a full backup of the Preview.

    And if it might help anyone who might want it, attached is a zip of the MP log files.
