Scary: Windows 8: Vendor App Woes
Many early adopters of Windows 8 are going to be sure to notice one thing for a while: vendors are going to need to either redesign their apps to function properly within the Windows 8 desktop environment, or they're going to need to re-code the app from scratch to work within the Modern UI. At the moment, there are quite a few apps that just aren't working properly on Windows 8. If you find that you're the victim of this, try running your app in compatability mode. That worked for me in one particular application, but I found that it still wasn't functioning quite right. Hopefully, vendor app woes will be worked out sooner rather than later.
