    Default Dell software won't install in windows 8

    Hi all,

    I did a dual boot Windows 7 & 8. None of the pre-installed Dell Applications will install in Windows 8. I really want my Roxio software for obvious reasons. I tried Dell Stage Weather on my desktop (it shows the weather and the time in another country that I am watching) and Dell Support Center. I tried compatibility mode on the installers already. The desktop is still in warranty but Dell can't help because it's a new operating system that was installed. Anybody else having these issues and a fix?

    Thanks!

    Contact Dell for a solution. They will have to offer updates to their proprietary apps for their PC's.

    Hi Muro,

    Welcome to Windows 8 Forums. Try the following method to see if that works.

    Dwnload Dell Stage and Roxio to WHS and burn to CD-Rom with Wndows 7 first. Then boot into Windows 8. Install the software in setup files using Windows 7 compatibility mode.
