    Windows 8 compatibility?

    I have the Win8 CP, and Horizon won't load for me. I'm thinking that this has nothing to do with Win8 since it is compatible with everything that Win7 is, but I could be wrong. The program simply won't load. I tried downloading it a few times, restarting my computer, I put it on the allow list of my firewall, now I don't know what to do. I tried using the Diagnostic Tool but my .Net Framework is up to date and there are no issues with it.

    Any ideas what might be wrong? It simply won't open. I double click on it, the timer comes on for maybe 2 seconds then nothing.

    This is the first program I've used that is not compatible with Win8 that was compatible with Win7. They use the same architecture so I don't see why it would be incompatible... every single one of my computers drivers were compatible, all my programs, everything. It's just Win7 with a different start screen.

    Running it under compatibility mode AND run as admin doesn't work either.

    Cheater doesn't want people running Windows 8 to be able to run Horizon, there is nothing you can do.

    I'm pretty sure Horizon has a built-in check to see what version of Windows you're running. If it's unrecognised it wont run. Like what happened with Windows 7 SP1.

    I doubt Windows 8 will be supported until retail release.

    As Camza said, Horizon is not yet compatible with Windows 8, nor should you currently be using it as your primary.

    Closed.

    Whoever said, 'It's not whether you win or lose that counts,' probably lost.
