  • Yea I did what the guy did and ran the web installer without issue. :) BTW your first post had me scared a bit...as a former Microsoft support person (back in the day when they were phone calls) I was concerned that you did not know about the Enterprise version of Windows 8 on MSDN. :)

  • Hi Armysniper,

    Sorry for haven't noted Win 8 versions on MSDN Subscriber.

    I just noted Win 8 last days and did not know that version.

    When I read that post I suddenly realize I have said something wrong.

    Hope the post haven't mislead anything.

    Anyway, glad to hear you have installed successfully.
