  • K. Krisztian ,


    For the skype issue - are you attempting to used the lastest update?    Or are you running into this problem with that one?

  • Medroid - are you able to right click the install and choose compat mode for Win7?

  • You can try to run the compatiblity troubleshooter to install the drivers.

    Since the manufacturers have not created drivers for Windows Developers Preview, I suggest you update to the most current Windows 7 driver.
    If that doesn't work, they try to install in compatibility mode.

    For the driver/drivers you downloaded use the compatibility troubleshooter to install them to see if that resolves the problem.
    You can do this by:

    ·         Enter the Start screen

    ·         Move your mouse to the bottom left of the screen to expand the Charms section

    ·         Select Search

    ·         Type Compatibility

    ·         Click Settings in the right column

    ·         Click Run programs made for previous versions of Windows

    ·         Then follow the prompts and direct the troubleshooter to the installer for your computer's driver.

    Let us know if this helps.
