I did , they said I was the first Win 8 user to try load the program, they will get back to me. However they said that there is nothing in the program that should not be compatible with Win 8 if it works on Win 7

Hi

 

That means they never tested it on Windows 8. A program which works flawlessly on Win 7 doesn't means  it works in Win 8. I have seen several apps that works with Win 7 but not with Win 8. I suggest running Program compatibility assistant and try to run the program in Win 7 compatibility mode.
