Windows 8 and FTM 2008 compatibility issue
Posted by: KAREN LUEBS (ID *****6367) Date: April 13, 2013 at 13:34:05

I just put FTM 2008 on my newest laptop which runs Windows 8. It's installed, but I can't register through the "Help" option (it says can't connect, register later), and the "Web Search" option gets eternally hung. The leaves on the tree are gray, and I have seen this before when I got my Windows Vista laptop. I can't remember why it wouldn't let me connect but I did eventually fix it (HOW?)

Could it possibly be that my security software is blocking it? I am running AVAST Free Antivirus.

Any help is appreciated!
