    Not under VirtualBox there wasn't.   If your hardware works under
    Windows 7 then I suspect it would be fine under Windows 8.

  • It doesn't work for me at all.  I get "A required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing" On 3 different machines and even through virtual box.  And....I used both the x86 and x64....same issues everywhere.  I have downloaded the software from multiple sites.  Please enlighten me and tell me what I'm doing wrong here.  2 of thes machines are much newer and should not have any issues.  And once is only about a year old and still should not have any issues.
