Sct and windows 8

Is anybody using windows 8 with their sct.I downloaded the software,however when I connect the tuner ,the sct updater does not recognize it and keeps saying,to connect the tuner even though it already is connected.I can hear the PC recognize the tuner,when its connected,but the new hardware wizard does not come up.

It works fine for windows XP, anybody have and ideas why the issue with windows 8 or what I am doing wrong?

You're not doing anything wrong Robert. I don't think it works with Windows 8. I had the same problem with Adrian's tuner and Windows 8. We had to use his old computer for changing files around on his tuner.

Hmm, I dont know what that would be from? I had it on Windows vista and my mother board on that laptop went out so when i got a new laptop with windows 8 Best Buy moved all my programs from my old comp to this one. Got a new tune sent a couple weeks ago and everything worked as it should! So i do not think your problem is the Windows 8

i had same issue with windows vista.

go to program files and find the sct.exe file in the sct program file and hit properties. find the run as tab and you can run the program like it running on xp.

you'll have to do that one the device manager for the driver for the sct tuner too but it solved my issue on vista.

I had a lot of issues and the sct guys had to take remote control of my laptop to fix. just uninstall everything and download the latest software updater from their website.

and try the "run as xp" option on the sct driver and the sct.exe file in program files. Im not the most familier with windows 8....
