I’m trying to install booksmart on a windows 8 PC and running into problems. The .exe is in my “downloads” folder, but when I run it a dialog box pops up and asks if the program can make changes to the hard drive and I click “ok” and then nothing else happens. In the task manager I don’t see booksmart running. I’ve changed the windows firewall settings to allow booksmart.exe through the firewall. Any other suggestions?

I have a similar problem – it starts to install then tells me it cannot create a dll file and cancels the installation. Any ideas?

A lot of my favorite programs won’t run unless I right click on the program in Start and then choose to make a shortcut to the desktop; and it will put a shortcut on your windows 7 style desktop.
After making a shortcut it might run from the desktop; worth a try anyway.
I am new to Windows 8, but needed my older programs to run from the desktop, same as I usually do. Hope that helps.

HMM forgot; sorry; right click on program; choose to see file location and then drap and drop to desktop and choose create a shortcut. Out of practice; already created shortcuts to most of my older programs that won’t load and run in Windows 8.
