Seriously!! The fact that I'm running win8 doesn't matter. How many of you are running win7 vista or xp and still have the same issue.
Windows 7/Vista/Xp are supported. Windows 8 is still in Beta. If they say it isn't supported, then it isn't supported. it may work, but just because you can pound the square peg in a round hole with a large mallet doesn't mean that the square peg is supposed to fit in the round hole.
