I tried Windows 8 Consumer Preview
Some observations with Globalsat and GH-625XT
There is still some time to the official launch, but the sooner the version on the CD works, the better for new users.
The PC normally has Win Vista-32 English, I installed Win 8-64 English
SportTracks 3.1 with plugins
Had to enable .NET 3.5 in Windows features to get .NET 2.0
Other than that no problems
Training Gym Pro 1.6.8
(.NET required too?)
When starting, the SplashScreen is transparant for the text, looks strange
At first startup, the app works OK, could import activities
The second start gave exceptions of various kind. To get around it, I had to add Full Control to files in the Program Files directory:
These files were in Vista stored in "VirtualStore" - Windows automatically redirected users from writing there, all User data should be stored in the user directory. This could be a bug in Win8, but it is not impossible that MS blocks this feature completely too in the final version.
